4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Better in the bottle than draught. Pure amber colour, head has laced and remaind throughout. Aroma is a bouquet of everything NZ. Some pine, sweaty armpits,cats piss, lanolin, menthol, passionfruit and a cut paddock at haymaking time - all in a good way. Some heat and hop warmth. Best drunk when it doesn’t warm up too much as it overpowers a bit. Sweet malts with the earthy, sl medicinal hops coming thru. This is very complex and very good. Extra point for the label - it sings when you rub it...!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear amber orage color with large creamy off-white head, good laccing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of passion fruit, lychee, caramel and might really be gooseberries or redcurrant. Taste starts with sweet short touch of caramel that quickly gets overdominated by pungent hoppy following, tropical fruitiness and heavy bitter finish with long aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. With that sweetness seems so imperial to me...

Keg in Brewdog Glasgow. Grapefruit and orange peel... then alcohol kicks in. This is a beer that holds your interest, and tastes much stronger than it's ABV suggests.
