garza (567) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours a lightly cloudy golden look with a faint white head. Notes of orange and grapfruit zest, green mango and other tropical fruits hints. Some notes of herbs, malt and cookie dough too. Herbs and a very light hint of honey i th taste, very subtle. Citrus notes too. Light sweetness and lightly bitter. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a fresh dry and mild bitter finish. Good one.

jonnyguns (886) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy orange colour with an off white frothy head. Good lacing. The nose is awesome on this one heaps of grapefruit, mango, pineapple...like a tropical fruit juice and with subtle sweet caramel and biscuit malts. Taste maintains the mango, grapefruit and tropical flavours blended with a strong hop presence. Quite earthy tasting and the mango really freshens this one up. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish. Fantastic beer

Mikkylar (94) - Placentia, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 Bottle. Pours dark amber. Aroma is very rich with fresh hops. Like as if I was holding the the vine right in my hand. Pretty awesome. Flavor is smooth and malty.

Gachupines (853) - USA - OCT 15, 2012
Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is hops, mild pine and citrus. Flavor is intensely hopped but with a strong fruitiness. Definitely a strain of hop I’m not familiar with, very interesting though. Finish is a little dry, could be a little rounder and better balanced. Other than that this is a fantastic beer.

ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Light haze on this amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Fresh pine and marmalade hops with a little skunk. Smooth dry finish. Very nicely done.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. Fresh grass and grapefruit in the nose. Medium to big sweet flavor with some grass, dirt and grapefruit rind. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately resinous to finish with further rindy citrus character. Good.

jkwood04 (3789) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 7, 2012
500ml bottle in a shaker. Purs amber with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of citrusy hops and a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor the same, with a good amount of hops. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

BenH (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark amber with minimal white head. Nice big aroma, grapefruit, citrus and some distinct NZ character, gooseberry. Tasye has more of the same hop flavours, quite sharp with a heavy caramel malt backbone. Oily texture with a clean bitter finish. Delish
