4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours amber with a nice frothy off white head. Sweet juicy aroma of pineapple and peach, slightly floral. The taste is pleasantly sweet and fruity to begin with, with more of that floral peach before a big bitter pine finish. There’s a touch of aniseed too. Fairly flat carbonation with a good body giving it a slightly oily mouthfeel. Not obvious alcohol. Another very good beer from Buxton.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Very murky dark orange with a thin but creamy light tan head. Way too much caramel in both the aroma and flavor for my tastes; mineral and grassy hoppiness with some fruity sweetness in the middle, and a dryish herbal finish. Medium to dense body that’s sticky. I like Buxton, but this was a miss for me.

Pours a hazy orange, with a thick white foam head. Really intense hops and pine aroma, from this super fresh bottle, delivered straight from the brewery . Beautifully balanced hop and malt flavour, with a drying bitter hop finish. Better than most DIPA from the U.S.
