3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from a bottle in mid-2012 at a tasting. Pours clear amber orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is full of grassy, tropical fruit, and citrus hops with light bread malt underlying. The flavor is very dry, with the same complex hop profile, a touch of light bread malt, and very nice bitterness. The body is medium and lightly sticky, with average carbonation and a long, nicely bitter finish.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Csakajósör - A bit hazy light amber colour with a long lasting off-white head. A lot of citrussy and tropical hop aromas. Simple but balanced malty taste in the background. An explosion of New Zealand hops: Passion fruit, peach, grapes, interesting and complex hoppiness. Medium carbonation, long dry finish, leaves bittersweet fruitiness in the mouth. Excellent IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had soapy floral character with a splash of tropical fruit. The flavor had more soapy floral notes, some tropical fruit, mild bitterness, something about this just wasn’t working for me, seems old.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50 cl bottle@home in Tulip@approx 5 degrees C. Pours deep amber with medium off white head with sufficient retention. Having had Tall Poppy from 8 Wired about a week ago, I believe that the brews form this brewery are the most aromatic I have had this year. The Marlborough winemaker is right, it does smell of gooseberries! Add to that hop, malt, elderberry, banana and Sauvignon Blanc, then you are getting there. Taste of a really good IPA, lots of hops, well balanced by malt and hints of the nuances found in the aroma also. Not as creamy as Tall Poppy, but really good, low carbonation palate also. Suited the beer to heat up a little opening it’s taste spectrum. Great stuff once again from 8 Wired.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent gold hue with a quickly dissipating small white head. Potent aroma containing notes of grapefruit, orange, spruce, hops, caramel and malt. Light bodied. Malt and caramel backbone with a citrus, hops, grass, and tropical fruit finish. The additional fruity features are quite nice, but I would have preferred a more full bodied, hoppier beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A 500ml bottle dated best before 1st October 2015 was poured into a pint glass. The beer poured a hazy copper amber colour with a one and a half finger head with good retention leaving nice stringy lacing. The immediate aromas were of pine, grapefruit and lime followed by lots of tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. Taste was malt caramel sweetness followed by tropical fruit flavours especially mango, pineapple and orange finishing with a nice bitter pine and grapefruit. It was medium bodied, medium carbonation, and slightly sticky. Overall, it was a very nice balanced IPA. The sweet malts and tropical fruit flavours make it a must buy for me.
