RichardW (1736) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle Rehills Newcastle. This. Is. Fantastic. Pours a lovely pale copper colour with a big foaming head. Aromas of peach, kiwi fruit, citrus and phenols. Immense smoothness on the tongue, very light caramel, oily spruce, subtle booziness, drinks so easily. Beer of the year contender already

Un très beau produit. Una palette de saveurs larges allant des agrumes aux fruits exotiques. Un corps prononcé. Juste la mousse ne tient pas assez. On Tap @ Biercab Barcelona & bottle from saveur-bière.com.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 24, 2013
L’apoteosi del luippolo portata all’estremo, un nettare divino, grande varietà e complessità di luppoli senza la stoppa del caramello.

Fashawn (430) - Montesarchio, 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.

tomekboniek (237) - 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.

Bov (10454) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2013
draught@Mikkeller&Friends, København - hazy dark orange beer with a little white foam left; hoppy aroma of grapefruit and peaches; a good malt backbone, dry and lightly astringent, juicy and solidly bitter; aftertaste of bitter oranges, hints of spices and tons of hops - balance and character, great stuff!

danielecamo (796) - 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!

harrisoni (15041) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle at Euston Tap. Very excited at seeing this. Resiny piney hop aroma. Fullish in mouth. Good toffee swtness balances the bitter hops. An extremely well poised double ipa. Good beer.

Really hoppy DIPA with long bitterness and fresh fruity aromas. Buxton have made it again!
