Bottle. This is a very well made beer! The NZ hops used are delicious and bring a great aroma to the beer, and this is perfectly balanced by the malt. Top shelf

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet apple nose. Smooth texture with a fluffy carbonation. Malt-forward and on the sweet side. Flavors of sticky caramel, rock candy, and sugared apples. Fresh hop flavors and aromas with notes of sweet grass and flowers. Mild bitterness. Even though it doesn’t fit within the style guidelines, and it’s a bit too sweet for me, I thought it was a tasty, well-made beer.

Can smell the hops as the bottle was opened. Got sugar aroma with sense of jube lolly. Burnt orange (SRM 14) in colour. Bit of caramel. toast among the citrus taste. Got a bitter finish that lingers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Resin and jujubee candy fruit in the nose with trace amounts of alcohol and fabric. Sweet, syrupy, twangy, a little something like shrimp shells, bitter leafy greens, pine sap into a bitter finish. Hoppy, sweet, simple.

Bottle from CBB. Clear, dark orange with small white head. Aroma has pine, malts, hops and some passion fruit. Passion fruit comes through more in the flavour, as do the hops. Tasted better as it went on and slightly warmed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cantabrian, thank you very much! This one has NZ hops all over the place. Grass, lime, gooseberry, sweet tropical fruit pulp and a faint note of white grapes. But also malt. Yes, it has a medium body, a medium bitterness and a light sweetness. You would never guess the ABV, it goes down like water. It makes the impression of a rookie IPA - not too intense, very balanced, maybe actually a bit too much. Could use a bit more punch. Still a very good beer.
