3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. I grew up with gooseberry bushes growing in the yard - stewed gooseberries make a lovely sweet pie filling. A very distinctive smell, but not the smell that comes from this IPA! Truth be told, this could probably be labelled as an IIPA and no-one would object. Very sweet fruit flavours on the noise, passion fruit is certainly there, and a rich bergamot tang too. Lovely on the tongue, rounded sweetness with a pleasantly rough bitterness from the hops. Smooth carbonation and texture, with a long hoppy finish. A really well balanced IPA this one; won’t scare the yeast-heads but will certainly satisfy the hop-heads.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar.
Pours hazy dark golden with a light yellowish head.
Heavy brew with a taste of grapefruit and grape seeds.
I thought it was a IIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar. Pours orange. Kind of sweet aroma. Grape and citrusy notes. The taste is well balanced. Lots of grape and gooseberry notes but also some caramel malt. Bitter grapefruit in the aftertaste. Quite heavy stuff.

Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Big malty floral taste and aroma followed by kiwi and other fruit. Tropical taste. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[keg at BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh] Like the idea of an all-kiwi IPA. Good, albeit very hazy, deep gold. Healthy dose of pithy citrus on the nose – quite limey? The flavours are also sharp fruit, plenty of grapefruit and orange, lemon peel. Refreshing and really rather good. Long dry, bitter finish

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Brewdog Bar, Edinburgh with cgarvieuk and Benjii. Hazy gold with slight white head. The IPA wars were definitely in session with this, very dry and bitter is the only way to describe it, lots of grapefruit skin and pith, lip puckering, but also very decent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On keg at the Brewdog Bar, Edinburgh for their IPA Wars. The beer was a cloudy golden colour (or as I heard another punter being told, "heavily conditioned") with a great thick, foamy white head. Resinous hop aroma of passionfruit and peach. Great flavour of passionfruit and mango with some light malt. A little sweet and nicely bitter. A chewy mouthfeel and lingering bitterness. Fantastic!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very interesting IPA. Completely different from any American or British IPA. Definitely has it’s own characteristics. Strong malt backbone, quite dark for an IPA. Good hop aroma, quite complex, fruity, tropical....gooseberries.... Good to taste a beer which can be clearly defined as a New Zealand IPA
