3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50 cl bottle @ hotel room, Las Vegas
Vertical with Fresh version
Aroma has fruity hops, some resin and mango. Also hints of gooseberry bush. Flavour is slightly sweet and rather fruity with mango, some caramel and gooseberry bush. This one was better and actually felt more fresh.

Pours clear copper with a small white head and great lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit and bready malts. Taste is a moderate warming fruity bitterness, dryness in the palate with a sweet bready and honey malt finish. Really nice.

absolutey frickin brilliant...similar to the fresh version, got a lot of tangelo flavour but this seemed even sharper than that one. don’t have many more comments to add to the other except that this is better.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper blonde with a thick fluffy off-white head. Beautiful! Fruity aromas of grape, kiwi and pepper. Light to medium body, low carbonation, loads of fruits on the palate including grapes and a strong blackberry and peppery profile that ends on a kiwi fruit long finish. Medium bitterness, never obtrusive, all the floor is laid for the fruity hops to shine. Very nice IPA!

Superb antipodean IPA. Great showcase of what can be done with New Zealand sourced ingredients (and European sourced brewer)! Look out for the seasonal ’fresh hopped’ version too - yum!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @CBC13 2013,
hazy orange/amber with an average white foam head.
Pine, citrus, malt. Lactose notes and maerican oak ...
Something strange ... maybe the brewer served me a blend or maybe I was too druk to appreciate it.
But guess what ... I loved it actually.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle into a tulip
Clear orange color. One finger white head, Excellent retention and lacing, Thick soapy lacing left behind.
Nose is a combination of pine, dank citrus, and some dank tropical fruits. Vibrant and fresh nose but quite dank and dirty smelling. Good caramel backbone nose to go with this.
Pine, grapefruit and once again a dirty/dank tropical fruit and orange taste. Would swear there is simcoe by the dankness but it is not.
Bold and brash feel to this. Heavy but enough carbonation to lift this. Not as much oil or resin as compared to US IPA’s but works well as the pure dirtyness and body is quite nice.
Really need to buy more of this stuff.

Royal Bank Plaza LCBO Outlet (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
April 7, 2013
The beer pours a reddish gold colour with a thin white head and some effervescence. The aroma was citrusy hops, tropical fruit, and grass. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is tropical fruit and citrus and bready malts. Very refreshing, and very good! An easy drinking IPA.
