After a long wait, our Special Reserve No.5 is pretty much ready. it’s an 8.4% big, bold, double IPA. It’s fresh, piney, big-bodied and with a bitterness that’ll slap you in the chops.

Douberd (4911) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2015
(Buxton Special Reserve V Wyoming Sheep Ranch) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 8.4% Golden orange colour on the body, tall and thick slightly off-white head sitting on top, with a very good retention, leaving medium lacing aroun the glass. Aroma has hops, pine, resin, fruity notes too. Taste also of pine, resin,caramel malts, quite bitter from the beginning while it builds up its bitterness on the aftertaste. Quite an alcohol burn. Medium body with good carbonation, nicely dry on the palate. Very good, albeit boozy at moments.

tomekboniek (531) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 7, 2015
Butelka. Barwa pomarańczowa, lekko zamglona. Wysoka biała piana, która utrzymuje się do samego końca. Po otwarciu butelki aromat bardzo świeży i intensywny owoców. Wyraźne nuty grejpfruta, agrestu, brzoskwini, ananasa. W smaku powyższe owoce z delikatną nutą karmelu, sosny. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej grejpfrutowo- ziołowa. Średnie wysycenie. Piwo pije się niesamowicie gładko, alkohol doskonale ukryty. Z pewnością najlepsza IIPA jaką miałem okazję skosztować.

Fashawn (587) - ITALY - MAR 19, 2015
Incredibile, perde qualcosa all’aroma ma recupera fortemente nel palato. Birra meravigliosa, piccolissima parte maltata e poi bomba tropicale,un sacco di frutto e tanto pino. Very good Dipa, i’m in love.

Creekygoose (21) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle from the Grumpy Goat beer shop, Reading, served in shaker. Magnificently hoppy DIPA from the wonderful Buxton brewery, my current fave. Loads of piney hops on the nose, fantastic marmalady, resinous hops all the way through. Good, but not overwhelming, bitter finish. A masterpiece!

Bottle from Bon Vivant companion. Appearance - golden amber with a generous fluffy head. Nose - tangy orange going into marmalade. Taste - more marmalade. The finish is more lime. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - good example of the style. Rich but refreshing.

Erasmus_ro (2539) - Alabama, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle, BBE 28/05/15, batch #97. Pours a yellowy orange with a stylish, decent-sized, lightly yellowish-brown head. Aroma is a lot of hoppiness, green and fresh from the mouth of the bottle. NZ hops from the glass: Passionfruit, guava, papaya. Taste is a lot of hoppiness; the same passionfruit, guava and papaya. Some pine, light caramel. Quite dry, but very fruity. Superbly drinkable even with such a high ABV. Medium with medium carbonation.

danielecamo (839) - ITALY - FEB 19, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore giallo dorato, abb limpida, con schiuma fine e abb persistente. Aromi molto intensi di frutta esotica, pomplemo, mango su tutti. Al palato corpo pieno, maltato presente che ben bilancia la parte amara importante ma non eccessiva. Birra bevuta giovane che regala sensazioni molto piacevoli, pulita e intensa. Buonissima!

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. A great balance between resinous and sticky hops and sticky tropical fruits, plenty of apricot. Fruit focus but with toffee-like sweetness. Nice drop
