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.

Pours hazy gold into a tulip. White head recedes leaving spider lacing. Sweet caramel and tropical fruit aromas. Mild rotting tropical fruit upfront turning to resin in the lasting finish.
