Clear golden color with white head. Citrusy, herbal, grassy hops on the aroma. Taste is quite bitter up-front, hoppy fresh and a bit dank. Medium body with good carbonation. Aftertaste is long and bitter. Overall it's a quite good IPA.

Many thanks to Gavin for the bottle!

Pours a lovely orange color, with a big, stable head.

Exhibits an intriguing nose, consisting of juicy grapefruit and zingy lemon, both being on par. Malts append a whiff of honey, as well as bread, adding perfectly to the hop aromas, creating a great interplay between sweet and sour, with a touch of grass to it to top the aromas off.

Has a medium carbonation with a very dough, pleasant mouthfeel, revealing a refreshing, flavorful beer.

Tastes of bread, lemon and toffee right from the beginning, with hops being easily the most dominant flavor. Next to its bitterness, the hops provide a pleasant interplay between a sticky lemony dryness and a grassy, soft, minerality. This blends into bready, slightly toasted malts, creating a convincing balance, regarding the beers bitterness, while adding to the complexity of the hops and therefore overall taste. Finishes with even more grass, wet leaves and honeyed lemon peel among dough malts, accompanied by a fruity dryness.

Great ipa, extremely versatile, while remaining focused on its citraic hop presence. Provides a great, pleasant mouthfeel, with enough bitterness during the finish to create a convincing hop punch.

330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Light, hazy golden. Thumb-sized, foamy white head with good retention over the opening few minutes.

Bursts of tropical fruits & strong citrus/grapefruit notes, a hop-filled smell with some pine in the mix. Fresh smelling with lots of lemon but the aroma could've been more pronounced towards the end.

Again tropical fruits, pine & grapefruit with lots of citrus, particularly lemon flavours. A nice surprise was the caramel & pale malts to follow this up. Sorachi Ace hops are very strong with quite a lot of lemon coming through & a nice bitterness towards the end.

Light-medium bodied with medium carbonation & a semi-bitter mouthfeel. Smooth & refreshing at the same time with a slight citrus tang to it & a dry, lingering bitter finish.

A good introduction to Buxton Brewery beers, very enjoyable & quite refreshing. The aroma could have been a little stronger, it seemed to fade after a few minutes but a good beer & one I'd be tempted to pick up again if I spotted it anywhere.
