Bottle at home (bottled 25nov2016). Pours light hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of piney resinous hops, sweet malts in the back. Taste is over moderate to heavy bitter, moderate sweet, piney, resinous hops, sweet malts, resinous oily aftertaste. Not bad.

Dipa provning julafton. Klassiskt frgad Dipa. Doften kllartung och bltt grs . Lite torkade frukter och tydligt av mogen pron. I munnen rejl beska och barren finns dr. Viss mjlighet av finare sort. Eftersmak beeeesk, gr, trisst, nada 0%. Men efterbeska r jttefin. Ok Dipa dr eftersmaken var stor besvikelse. Typiskt okunniga Dipa bryggare dr man st in humle och inte tnkt p balansen.

AshtonMcCobb (6407) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2016
On keg at the Hanging Bat. Appearance - deep amber with a nice neat lacy head. Nose - marmalade and lime. Taste - vegetal note thats washed away eventually by the return of the citrus. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - harder work than I expect from this style.
Earlier Rating: 3/5/2015 Total Score: 3.8

Cest une belle IPA lamertume franche, frache et prcise que nous offre ici la Brasserie Buxton. Le visuel laisse pourrait tre tout de mme amlior avec un ambr opaque sans prsence de mousse. Le nez est trs expressif, marqu par des armes de pinde, dagrumes et de caramel. Lattaque souple, porte par les crales et le caramel, laisse trs rapidement la place lamertume, intense, puissante, fine sur des notes de pin et dagrumes. Lalcool est trs bien intgr, lquilibre bien trouv et la longueur remarquable mais sans pour autant amener de nouveaux armes. Je regrette personnellement labsence dune vritable arrire bouche et dune corpulence un peu plus marque. En conclusion, cette Wyoming Sheep Ranch sent bon les espaces sauvages du Wyoming et Buxton nous dlivre un bel opus, o lamertume sexprime en toute beaut.
