Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is fresh grassy, leafs, moss, flowers, dried fruits, light malts, hops, hay, citrus. Taste is slightly sweet grassy, leafs, moss, lawn, citrus peel, light malts, sugar, dried fruits, flowers, bark, pine needles. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry grassy mouthfeel. Nice.

C’est une belle IPA à l’amertume franche, fraîche et précise que nous offre ici la Brasserie Buxton. Le visuel laisse pourrait être tout de même amélioré avec un ambré opaque sans présence de mousse. Le nez est très expressif, marqué par des arômes de pinède, d’agrumes et de caramel. L’attaque souple, portée par les céréales et le caramel, laisse très rapidement la place à l’amertume, intense, puissante, fine sur des notes de pin et d’agrumes. L’alcool est très bien intégré, l’équilibre bien trouvé et la longueur remarquable mais sans pour autant amener de nouveaux arômes. Je regrette personnellement l’absence d’une véritable arrière bouche et d’une corpulence un peu plus marquée. En conclusion, cette Wyoming Sheep Ranch sent bon les espaces sauvages du Wyoming et Buxton nous délivre un bel opus, où l’amertume s’exprime en toute beauté.

Bonne IPA , somme toute assez classique de du genre. Nez bien fruité, bouche bien amère, tout ça, tout ça, ... Mais ne vaut pas son prix chez Bubulle.

allanmb (269) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2017 Pours slightly golden orange with big off white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, orange and pine hops with honey and malt tones. Great mouth feel and medium carbonation. Taste is malty with hint of hops (this is an old bottle and the hops have clearly diminished). Finish is bitter with malt and slightly boozy. This used to be much hoppier from memory but age has gotten to this one.

33cl bottle at home from FirmaBier. Nose is fruity. Body is opalescent orange copper, head is medium, white, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is honey, milk chocolate, caramel, weed, peanuts, dried fruits. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting fruity hoppy medium to heavy bittersweet, light umami. Full body, soapy texture, average carbonation. Not that easy, strong flavor, very interesting, not that tasty but very unique, great IPA.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2016
On tap at Kick. An unclear dark orange colored beer with a small dense off-white head. Some lacing. The aroma is very piney, with citrus zest and orange. Some malts and bread in the back. It’s full bodied, lightly warming and with a lite carbonation level. Citrus zest, pine cones and some pale malts, with a lasting finish. A bit papery malts, with bitterness, pine cones and orange zest in the finish. Sure a pleasant one. 160227

Pours copper with a big fluffy head. Aroma is mango, a bit of fruity spice and malt. A nice hoppy taste is followed by an intense bitter finish.

On tap @ Kick. Clear, deep golden body with a fine, lacing off-white head. Strong fruity aroma with peach, oranges and caramel malt. Flavor is medium sweet, fruity, malty, bisquit and quite bitter. A fine mature peach flavor with quite much oranges and a hint of pine is making a good balance towards the malt and caramel base. Alcohol is well hidden and all over this is a fine balanced IPA. Fine balanced body as well and long lasing fruity bitter aftertaste.
