COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The biggest religion in America is baseball, closely followed by religion. This cultural extravaganza can’t be properly appreciated in full without a refreshing brew such as the Double IPA, the heavy hitter of Yankee craft beers. Stolen Base is our version. A triple play of smooth malts, citrus notes, and supersize-me hops that leave it bitterer than a Hollywood divorce.

500ml bottle pours hazy copper gold with a brief fluffy head quite an intense aroma of caramel malt fruit & hops taste is similar with an inkling of citrus spice & the alcohol content, very tasty

I had to suck on a few Boundary Rd lemons to find this plum, but well worth the effort and wait for this, their finest, ale. Dark kauri gum appearance with a light melon and guava fragrance. Well balanced bittersweets, and a whopping 8% alcohol. Very nice

Overall impressed with this one, great fruity hop aroma and caramel malt base. Very well balanced for an 8%. Worth getting one fresh.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 This beer was recommended to me by Jarrod at ’Your Shout’ Linwood. Also jimthechap liked it, so it’s all good for a taster by me. I love the colour of the drop in the glass. Bugger all head, but some lacing down glass. Interesting aroma, some pawpaw and mandarin. Not an overpowering alcohol hit for 8 per cent which is refreshing. I don’t drink Boundary Rd beers as a rule, mainly because I think they use too much sugar in their brewing, hence the massive hangovers next day. Bane of a beer lovers life! I do however think the Harringtons IPA is far superior to this brew. I will drink this again, and is definitely the best Boundary Road beer I have tasted.

Sten (674) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2014
Amber coloured beer with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, citrus and hoppy. Flavour is malty, a bit watery and a bit of a alcoholic aftertaste. (Bottle 50cl)

mzaar (1744) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2014
Flaska, gåva av vän på besök i Auckland. Kopparfärgad vätska med smutsvitt skum. Intagande dofter av tropisk fruktighet, karamell och trä. Smakinslag av karamell, kåda, apelsin, melon och söt fruktkaka. Grapefruktbeskan är väl avvägd. Mjuk och len munkänsla, med svag oljighet i bakgrunden. Trots sina 8 procent alkohol går ölen inte över att bli spritig likt en del andra DIPAs.

TheNucleator (21) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 13, 2014
American malty notes on the nose but hop aroma not too discernible. Honey amber colour with light caramel head. Malty taste present with hops, alcohol taste present. Quite astringent with fairly acrid aftertaste near the end of the glass. Quite good mouth feel. Overall would rate well except for the peculiar bitterness at the end. Good value for money though.

Brodies_Best (259) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottled pours clear amber with medium carbonation and a tan head that doesn’t last too long. Aroma is strong of rosehip floral hops, biscuit and caramel. Taste is sweet and of biscuit, medium roasted malt. Bitter sweet aftertaste.
