4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

L’apoteosi del luippolo portata all’estremo, un nettare divino, grande varietà e complessità di luppoli senza la stoppa del caramello.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

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!

Bottle west riding dewsbury. Cloudy thick orange colour halo white head. Aroma is piney resin hops. Taste is lots of pine some sweet fruits and malts followed by a wonderful dry hoppy very bitter finish. Medium body prickly carbonated. Really very very good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bold aromas, powerful in both amber and even bubblegum like malts, earthy and pine hops, cheesy yeast development and an overall powerhouse dark sweet bread underlining. Surprisingly smooth in taste thanks to the low carbonation and well rounded off (yet high) bitterness, of course as realized through bucketloads of malts. Nice warming ending. Delicous! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; murky brown pour with big foam white knew I should have let bottle settle after car journey, super fresh hop aroma, taste for me is big American hops with well balanced malt some sweet caramel a slight hint of pepper, bitter and the alcohol is definitely present. Very good English take on an American DIPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Epic hop nose - tons of burnt orange peel, spicy spruce notes, fresh mango and kiwi. Pours a cloudy, muddy brown. Flavour follows the nose with HUGE hoppy characters - lemon juice, pine resin, fresh sage and papaya. Finish is strongly bitter with underpinning candy notes from the hops - some lemonadey notes around the edges and a long, strong, lingering spice glow. Awesome.

pretty good stuff (as usual!)
like an amped up Axe Edge, more fruit, more bitterness, more hazy.
still not convinced by the name, despite WSR being a great route. still i suppose it’s pushing the boundries of naming conventions, at least it shows more thought than a list of hops!
