Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. This is a blurry golden looking one with a small but lacing white little top. The nose is what I will call floral with melon, green pine cones and some sweetish almost sticky caramel. Not bad at all. Itís sharp and quite grassy hoppy in the mouth. A good bite to it. Almost like stinging hedge on the hop profile. Full bodied and about average on the carbonation. A well crafted tasty dipa. 03.05.2014

mike_77 (3653) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2014
Aroma is strong with resinous, piney hop. Also some lighter fruity tones. Slightly oily feel. Flavour has a high level of bitterness and again is mostly resinous and piney. Leaves a bit of a furry aftertaste.

Hanoi (554) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Nose is pine, honey, herbal, emerging tropical sweetness. Taste is tropical sweet notes leading to a rich bitterness, light spice, and pine with stick sweetness in the finish. Mouthfeel is good. Rich and delicious, Buxton are very reliable at high strength beers.

Davros (2191) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2014
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows tangerine, mandarin and resinous pine along with a fair whack of sweet clean malt. Rich flavours with lots of sweet malt and slightly nutty notes followed by big spicy and resinous hops.
