L: pours a clear slightly orangey bright gold with a tiny bit of lacing. S: typical nose for this style, very seducing tropical fruits and pine. T: tastes a lot like the nose, but not the bitter hop bomb I was expecting, more flavourful like a Sculpin. F: itís surprisingly crisp and dry, quite a refreshing light body, hides the ABV ridiculously well. O: I really am a sucker for a crisp fruity west coast-style IPA, and this fits the bill.

Draught at Brewdog. Rich citrus hop character, bitter grapefruit with a caramel edge, pineapple, somewhat a bit too boozy, notes of mint, dry bitter finish. Ok hoppy iipa but I have yet to be super impressed by a kiwi brew.

Bottle. Aroma is tropical fruits, grapefruit, lychee and malty sweetnees in the back. In taste it is completely hops upfront, great grapefruit bitterness. The beer is dry in the finish. Nice DIPA, quite old bottle, but still tasty.

Amber pour with a medium amount of white head. Aggressive fruit and hops flavor and aroma. Everything I want out of an Imperial IPA

Bottle from hop hideout, sheffield. Clear yellow with small white head. Aroma is grapefruit and lychee. Taste is tangy and bitter. Oily full body and mild carbonation. Good.

Bottle pour at home split thanks Andrew for sharing. Golden pour, tones of hops in this beer, smooth with a nice bite.

22 Oz bottle poured. Thanks Dad! Pours a mostly clear golden color with a lasting head. Very very hoppy aroma and flavor. Iíve decided I love New Zealand hops and beers. Hop front with a nice mix of tropical fruit. Lingering, hoppy, fruity flavor. Solid IPA. Very nicely done.

Slightly disappointed with this, a sweet fruit and malty aroma, with quite a biscuity taste, that has a hop finish, but not especially bitter. A good DIPA, but I was expecting better.

Great beer. ínuf said. Assertive hop aroma and flavor. A blend of American dank and New Zealand tropical fruit that melds perfectly. Flavor brings a slight malt balance. Outstanding beer thatís greater than the sum of its parts.
