look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with a standard macro label. Purchased from Leura Cellars.

Appearance: pours a hazy amber orange with only the slightest fine carbonation visible. A small white head slowly drops away, leaving a solid lace.

Aroma: a decent aroma of earth and pine hops with some fruit backing. Very enticing.

Taste: virtually the same as the aroma but a bit more moderate. Mostly hops, the fruit fades away a bit. Still quite refreshing.

Aftertaste: the finish comes through a bit dry, still with the pine hops.

Mouth feel: a lighter body with slightly more than moderate, spritzy carbonation.

Overall: a refreshing IPA with all the normal fruit and pine hop characteristics. The only problem being that for AU$130 a case of 24 x 330mL (2014), this is nowhere near worth it. It is a nice IPA, but no better than others for half the price.

Pours a rich, amber colour. Smells of citrus hops and faint malts. Slight sweet taste, balanced hops and malts, hints of citrus, earthy notes at the end. Quite balanced and crisp.

**Had it on draught and cask.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Dec 2017 (bottled March 2017). Acquired a little while back from the Brewdog webshop. The label describes it as a full-flavoured IPA brewed with European, US and NZ hop varieties.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A rich golden-amber hue with faint haze and moderate carbonation. Produces a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a persistent surface layer. Some lacing.

S: Aroma of intense hops with hints of pine resin, grass/hay, herbs, spicy noble hops, subtle citrus, caramel malt, light grain, mild barley sugar and earthy yeast. Nicely balanced - excellent.

T: Tastes of incredibly aromatic hops with a stinging bitter finish. Notes of pine resin, weed, herbs, noble hops, grass/hay, subtle citrus peel, caramel malt, a touch of barley sugar and earthy yeast. Slightly sweet, followed by a robust, resinous bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with soft carbonation and good body. Quite astringent; hop oils tickle the palate. Aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, pine resin, herbs, earthy yeast and malt.

O: Superb - just what an American IPA should taste like. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour are laden with intense aroma hops and bitterness. Good body; could be a tad more carbonated. One for hop-heads everywhere. Well worth sampling if you have the chance.

Teku glass.
A: Straw yellow/light orange, hazy with big white medium lastin head. Good lacing.
S: Tropical fruits aroma (passion fruit, mango), sweet citrus hoppy aroma (mainly orange), some low pine and grassy aroma - mainly in the background, also noticable quite big malt backbone - caramel, bread, low biscuit;
T: moderate bitterness - noticable some pine, grassy and light herbal flavours, bitterness is moderate and not too long, it's well balanced with sweetness and malty character. Definetely dry and bitter finish.
M: dry beer, medium body, medium carbonation, light alcohol warming
O: Nice beer, but there are lots of nice beers. There's not too much bitterness as for DIPA, the bitter character is also quite short. Amarillo hops are noticable by it's indirect sweet charcter - in this case it should be balanced with some bitter hops. Nelson Sauvin adds refreshing and dry character. Aroma is definetely better than the taste. What I like is this is really refreshing and drinkable beer.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter via our friend from across the pond---Cheers Ian!
This English interpretation of a AIPA pours a nice and clear amber tinged yellow with a
nice head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, thick layer, and displays some very nice
sudsy lacing. Nose of heavy pine, grapefruit, caramel and honey malts, and some grassy hops
as well. Flavors follow the nose with grassy and grapefruit ridden hops taking the fore with caramel
malts showing up in the middle of the taste with touches of honey and light biscuit, and then finishing
off with a rich resin heavy pine hop with a touch of lemon zest. Very nice mouth feel in the mode
with melding 2 styles with medium light carbonation that is just effervescent enough to give
this brew a lift, medium light body, and a rich resin heavy pine touched finish with citrus
notes on the aftertaste.

Overall, a SOLID little brew worthy of the Buxton name.

Nice

Cheers

Pours hazy amber with a small head.
Aroma of tropical fruit, floral notes, pineapple, spicy hops and sweet clean malt.
Very fruity flavours; pineapple, passion fruit, floral notes, low malt. Assertive but balanced bitterness.
Needs more carbonation.

A 330ml bottle brought from locally brought from Dunnels. Pours a hazy amber colour, with medium creamy white head and leaves lacing. Aromas is of mandarin, grapefruit, cereal, spicy hops with some floral and bready aromas. The taste has much of the same but also a malty caramel side followed by a spicy hopped bitterness in the finish.
