4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 Aroma has surprising amount of caramel malt which then recedes a bit and allows the fruity, grassy, citrusy and piney hops to start spilling over. The delicious oily mouthfeel makes it feel like drinking liquid, beer-flavoured caramel. Lots of activity in the after taste, the usual citric and piney suspects, and also a hint of strawberries and cream. RE-RATE: 2nd bottle Taste is same but aroma! Oh! The hops are completely hidden behind an industrial strength vanilla wine/ sponge cake-with-mock-cream malty sweetness. I’m not a fan of sponge cake with mock cream, but boy does it ever smell good on this baby.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 On tap at Pomeroys in Christchurch. Nice amber colour with creamy head. Tastes of pine and citrus and malt flavours and lovely after taste on the palate. This was one of the beers I came to NZ to try and wasn?t disappointed. Like the Super Conductor, fantastic beer and lives up to its high reputation. All in all a great beer and right up there with the best.

Nice citrus, passionfruit & hemp. Nice texture, a tad too bitter and I liked the standard Hopwired a tad better.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the Local Pub, Halandri, Athens.
This beer is a blend of an IPA wet-hopped with Motueka hops and an IPA wet-hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops. Unfiltered.
Aroma: Much lemony, sugary goodness bursts as soon as I open the bottle. Hard to describe. Extremely
fruity (citrus, berries, tropical fruit, banana, pear). Mild aromas of green olives, yeast and more. Fresh, indeed. Awesome.
Mouthfeel: Full, oily body.
Taste: Bitter and dry. Unripe greens, lemon rind, fruit skins...
Finish: Dry, bitter, tangy. Great.
Overall: Very good IPA for citrusy taste lovers.

Bottle pour hazy amber/copper. Nose with abundant citrus and pine hops. Taste with floral hops, pine, and almost grassy (reminding me of a New Zealand savignon blanc). Nice long finish.
