Wow what a great beer. Big aroma and flavour of grapefruit orange and citrus. Taste is bitter refreshing but not overly so. The intense flavour caught in the beer is the stand out. Love that beer that makes you sit back and go "oh wow" and reminds you of that 1st time you discovered beer could taste so good.

Hard to believe this comes from a single hop variety, it is very well rounded and complex. I opened this outside on a windy day, but the fruity, floral, citrus hop aroma was massive - perhaps a wind vortex is the optimal method for delivering aroma? :-) Taste was full bodied and nearly as rich as the aroma promised. Only downside was a slight saltiness that I sometimes detect in a rich IPA

This is a real treat. Not hoppy at all but well balanced bitterness, the hops are more citrus than grassy and they donít add to a hard finish. The flavours really dance in this and the whole is really drinkable, understated bitter that is clean to drink. Superb IPA style beer that isnít hop heavy or a palate crash but a nice easy drinking refreshing beer that made me smile.

Pours clear amber, bit of foam there. Nice looking. Aroma is sweetish, some fruits, not really hoppy. Feels a bit old, so should have drinken this earlier. Taste has mild hops, bit of fruits, rather malty beause hops are getting fainter with time. Good and tasty drinking but I imagine I need to rerate if I can try it fresh.

Pours a very cloudy amber, typical bottle condition with massive head. All the typical IPA fruit and hop with hop on the nose. Not as bitter as I was expecting, has a great palate though and hides the higher alc well. Some lacing down. Great stuff from Dunedin's best brewery.

Pours light amber with good head. Aroma us of citrus and pinenut. Sweet and then floral hops moderate and well rounded. The floral hops and bitterness continues. Bitter dry aftertaste. Decent and well balanced. Only criticism is it kinda foams as you take a swig... not a great sensation

Prominent orange and tropical hop aromas and flavors punctated by some resiny hop flavors make for a fine íwest coast styleí IPA. Well-done carbonation, medium-lean body, with slight drying to longer, clean finish. Thank you kmweaver for sharing.

Fresh & alive this beer is like running through a meadow on a crisp spring morning. Full of flavour and balanced nicely with hops, this beer knows what it's about. A real credit to the brewers.
Served out of the fridge I'd be interested to know how it tastes at the recommended 8 to 10 but I don't think it will last that long to find out!
