500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to reveal some really nice lacing. Aroma is mild but pleasant with citrus (pineapple and grapefruit?) and some hints of caramel. Taste is a bold bitterness with grapefruit dominating and a fruity and malty sweetness. Flavors are nicely balanced, body is medium and carbonation is adequate. A very solid brew for the style and highly recommended.

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 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.

GlassBrass440 (295) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 6, 2015
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.

500ml bottle pours a yellow amber color without much head. Tropical and piney hop flavors. Low carbonation.

500ml bottle from Glug in the Grainger Market Newcastle served cold at home in a Hoegaarden tulip shaped snifter. Slightly hazed golden body with a white head that dissipates to a skim. Demerara sugar and tropical fruit in the aroma. Sweet tropical guava and pineapple flavour, with a hint of butterscotch in the background.. Medium bodied, slick mouth feel. The intensely bitter finish sets this one apart. As bitter as any beer Iíve ever had. Pungently puckering.
