pours golden with medium white head and persistent lacing. aroma is all hops - mostly spruce/cedar but there’s a hint of citrus there too. taste is clean, well-balanced hops and a slight touch of malt and candy sweetness; finishes with some hop bitterness. simple, clean, and refreshing.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 Piney hops with citrus overtones, toasted malt backing. Thinking I had an old bottle; the hops seemed faded, the malts a bit too pronounced for such a legendary IPA.Very drinkable, though, with a smooth, crisp feel.

a personal favourite, with the perfect combination of malts and pine / stone fruit hops.

Hype? yes! Worth it? Yes! What they have done with this beer is fantastic. Resin from start to finish and is a dream for a lover of IPA’s starts solid ends solid.

Lambister (441) - FINLAND - SEP 18, 2016
Deep golden color, white head. Aroma is fresh hops and fruits. Nice hoppy and fruity taste, fresh hops, some malty body. Good straightforward IPA.

explosivedog (286) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 12, 2016
12oz bottle. Nose is pine, caramelised orange, wood. Flavour is pine with some refreshing fruitiness with melon, orange and lemon notes. There’s plenty of cereal maltiness and, somewhat bizarrely, a little black pepper. Very little in the way of aftertaste.

Bottle at the airport. Malty, bitter. Decent IPA but I like something a bit more citrus.

Orange marmalade and pepper on the nose. I did not sneeze. There’s some tropical fruit, a bit of honey-like sweetness and a little chewy resin that is also aromatic. Beautiful East Coast IPA I could drink all day
