Bottle shared with husband. Orange color, white head. Great lacing. Wow, huge on the tropical fruits in the aroma and taste. A definite hop bomb, but it doesn’t totally overpower the malt. I didn’t realize how much I liked super hoppy beers until I tried this beauty.

Quite the hop bomb, and quite tasty at that. What is great is that Buxton did not forget the malts--the sweet malts add a strong backbone to the undeniable tropical fruit blast.

Attractive nose straight from the bottle. Slightly cloudy. Fruit laden taste, not overpowered by alcohol. Delicious.

Buonissima IPA inglese dal colore ambrato chiaro con schiuma pannosa e consistente. Al naso delicata ma intensa con note di resina e fiori. In bocca equilibrio da maestri! giusta amarezza con corpo medio leggero che rende questa birra molto beverina. Il sapore resinoso e floreale con note fruttate riempie il palato laciando un finale persistente di piacere!

This now ranks as one of my favourite beers. Great find, thanks to The Bank micro pub in Willingham, Cambridge. (great little pub)

Agree with the description, this beer was an eye opener when I tried this earlier in the year. Fairly unassuming citrus nose on this amber beer. Gentle carbonation, high bitterness but well balanced by mango, resin and lemon and a strong malt backbone.

Awesome IPA with very fruity notes from the Nelson Sauvin hops. Well balanced with a long dry finish.

Bevuta in bottiglia . Birra dal colore oro carico con schiuma bianca compatta e peristente. Al naso senti note agrumate. Anche al palato note, fruttate frutta tropicale, pompelmo, uva ed erba. Il corpo è nella media birra di facile bevuta. Molto piacevole finale amaro, fresca e buona....continuerei a berla...

A great bottle conditioned IPA. Pours a great amber/red colour. A really well balanced beer, caramel, sweet malts with great bitterness on the end
