Wonderful, fruity hop aroma. Color golden with a decent white head. Hop flavor noticeable but not as in your face as American IPAs. A more balanced tasting. Delicious!

Tap at Craft Brixton - 28/09/12.
Lightly hazed amber with a thin white head.
Nose deominated by tropical fruit, mango, papaya, passion fruit, a little pine and hops.
Taste follows with some bitter grapefruit, more pine, a bit sharper than the largely sweet nose suggested.
Medium bodied with a sweet fruity finish.

Keg @ CBC Brixton. The pour’s deep amber with a big white head. The nose is apricot, honey, marmalade, green shoots. The taste is sweet fruity malt, hints of mango and tropical fruits. Honey, light pissy citrus. Chalky mineral. Smooth and fresh. A bit syrupy and big-bodied. Overall, quite good! On form.

Same ol’ thing. Pours an amber color with too much sweetness. Hops provide a unique grape/berry element with some wet grass but the malt sweetness is a bit too present for my taste.

pours light orange, very see-trough (the clearest most i had so far)small, rather fast fading foam, smells very nice. citrushoppy more than bitter,yet still very different. label sais unique hops, so that probably explains it.doesnt taste bitter at all, just hoppy. great mouthfeel, taste dissapears very quickly, overall very nice but more wattery than i’m used too. thanx to the australien guys who brought me this one !

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Orange-amber body, medium white head, streaky lacing. Nose is full of tropical new zealand hops: floral and tropical fruits--mango, pineapple, grapefruit and orange. Pleasant malt profile is accentuate my the fruity hops in the flavor profile. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, nice bitter finish.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff feb-12: en ipa fra Down Under, laget på NZ malt og NZ superhumler. Tropisk aroma og herlig smak. Et klasseøl som jeg husker som det beste av mange gode øl denne kvelden. Må ha mer...
