R4N5H (1111) - NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2017
On tap at Buxton Brewery Tap House on 9-Apr-2017. Hazy pale amber colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, cereal, sweet malt and pine. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of sweet malt, cereal, mango and grapefruit. Lightly hopped with medium bitterness. Enjoyable, refreshing but more of an English style IPA.

Alengrin (5156) - BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2017
Buxton IPA from a 33 cl bottle. Moussy, somewhat irregular, egg-white head, leaving some small patches of lacing here and there, quickly thinning in the middle but stable on the edges, over a lightly hazy old gold coloured beer with pale orangey hue. Aroma of lime juice, starfruit, pink grapefruit flesh, rambutan fruit, dank tropical orchids, warm toast, soggy biscuit, green peppercorns, fainter hints of unripe banana, minerals, cypress leaves, courgette, withering basil, freshly baked cookies, wakame, curcuma powder, old garlic, vague marihuana - but no old hops urine this time. Crisp, fruity onset but in a clean and restrained way, sweetish mandarin (lively) and guava (more subdued), sweet-and-sour passion fruit and a mild touch of softly sourish lime, even some very light umami of fresh green seaweed, softly carbonated in a supple, lightly oily, slick physical environment. A biscuity malt sweet core builds up after this, with even a brief accent of honey cookies, but quickly making way for the expected wave of lovely aromatic hoppiness, pleasantly drying the finish along with some dry bakers yeast-like sensations; the hops leave behind a coating of spicy, quite deep and explicit bitterness, a tad wormwood-like even, but also behave properly in terms of retronasal impressions, ranging from orangey and lime-like to slightly piney and (exotically) peppery. This pepperiness lingers along with the last remnants of the malt sweetness after swallowing, but the hops clearly prevail over the malts; the tail is so juicy that it almost feels like swallowing freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Aromatic, elegant, refreshing and a tad different from the ever more vast ocean of international IPAs spanning the world, this is again a beautiful Buxton creation. I love this brewery passionately.

colui72 (939) - HONG KONG - FEB 2, 2017
Hazy pale straw, soapy white head, sticky lacing. Aroma of mango and citrus. Taste is straight bitter, with lemon, mango, biscuit, resin. Funky after taste, with a lingering bitter feeling. Just OK.

The spiciness and Belgium like yeast taste put me off this beer, not for me,

This pretty ordinary, still a good beer reminds me of saying: We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. - Aristoteles
