Bottle 33cl shared by Calisky, an amber beer with medium head. Nose is intense on ripped fruits, mango and peach, hop resin. Aroma is very fruity and sweet on mandarin, mango, lot of coconut oil notes, almond, very bitter, resin and pine, strong body. Aftertaste is very long and powerful on bitterness and fruitiness.

HKdIPA (808) - HONG KONG - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle from Ales & Lagers at PP. Hazy orange iron pour with thin white head. Aroma is really nice fruity hops and some sweet malt. Taste is more piercingly bitter than fruity - nice and resinous. some booziness on the finish. Would definitely get again - solid DIPA.

gegwilson (3701) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours amber with a nice frothy off white head. Sweet juicy aroma of pineapple and peach, slightly floral. The taste is pleasantly sweet and fruity to begin with, with more of that floral peach before a big bitter pine finish. There’s a touch of aniseed too. Fairly flat carbonation with a good body giving it a slightly oily mouthfeel. Not obvious alcohol. Another very good beer from Buxton.

3.2
Nickls (2535) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Tap. Very murky dark orange with a thin but creamy light tan head. Way too much caramel in both the aroma and flavor for my tastes; mineral and grassy hoppiness with some fruity sweetness in the middle, and a dryish herbal finish. Medium to dense body that’s sticky. I like Buxton, but this was a miss for me.

3.4
Yorker (2003) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly cloudy golden with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are citrus, pine, and caramel - with a bitter finish.

3.6
