3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. More reminiscent of an English style pale ale rather than an APA with a sweet caramel malt base and a moderate floral hop bitterness. There are traces of stone and tropical fruits but nothing like like the more hoppy APAs. Copper-amber appearance with medium off-white head. I get none of the advertised grassy vinous elements.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The head is ok, the body orange. It smells sweet, fruity intensive, hoppy, hoparomatic. The taste is hoparomatic, a bit bitter, sweet-hoppy. The first taste was not so good but after a wail it is very nice! 12/12/12/11/-/12

Nice aroma, sweetness and slight lychee. Pour is magnificent, deep amber with thin tan head. Delicious flavor, great cereal from the malts with a nice passion fruit driven hop finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml brown bottle. Deep golden to orange in colour, a bit of haze. Full white head, creamy and sticky with lots of lace rings. Fruity hops in the nose - slight orange and grapey Nelson Sauvs, light caramel. In the mouth the beer has caramel malts, orange peel and other fruitiness, mild grassy end, slight mineral notes. Bitterness is mild, light in body, perhaps a bit thin. Medium carbonation. A nice pale ale. The NZ hops work well here, drinks easily.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light, quite clear appearance with good lacing. Delicious tropical aromas with a malt caramel backing. Big, upfront malt caramel flavours that work towards a long, gentle bitterness. Brilliant balance.

Golden pour with a thin white head. Passionfruit, peach and light citrus aroma. Similar taste, slightly malty too. Low bitterness, very easy going down.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper, minimal head (as in almost none). Aroma is fruity hops - citrus, tropicals, flowers. Add grain, cereal once you drink some. Nice progression from grains to citrus, to a dry, mildly bitter finish. Hop aroma is less than some but it is still a refreshing, balanced drink.

Pours orange with a head that disappears quickly. Fruity earthy aroma, initial taste is sweet fruit, changes to citrus peel, aftertaste is back to being fruity. Enjoyed
