Pours a clear golden colour with sizable white head that dissipates to a small white covering that laces the glass quite nicely. Aromas are pine, citrus, sweet malt. Flavors are grapefruit, pine, medium bitterness, bit of malty sweetness. Overall a very smooth flavorful beer.

Light Amber color. Tons of passion fruit and tropical fruit. Very happy nose. Hoppy, mouth, very fun, light body. Bitter finish. Excellent pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Citrusy and grassy with a hint of tropical fruit. Caramel malts round the bitterness off nicely and there is a touch of spiciness about it. Soft on bubbles and big on hop aroma and flavor. The lingering bitterness from the hops is somewhat tamed by the malts.
A very enjoyable, it’s not a massive hop explosion but there are some subtleties in the flavour which make it quite a unique APA specifically showcasing NZ hops.

Pale amber body topped with a frothy head. Peach and melon are the top and dominant notes, but all overidden by a malty bitterness. A very good ale which I like to treat myself with. Yum, yum.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Tom L. Slightly hazy golden. Aroma of citric hops, a bit stale. Sweetish flavor with malt, citric hops, slightly stale, and decent bitterness. Medium-bodied. Could be fresher but still alright.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong fruity aromatics, along with some pine. Quite tart and sharp on the bitterness with some grapefruit and mandarin. Well-carbed. A great all-rounder, unlike Ravi Bopara.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange with a white head. Aroma is sweet candied fruit, malty, citrus hops, too. Full bodied and quite smooth. Flavor is full of sweet fruity hops with a backbone of caramel malt. Nothing really distinguishes this from other pale ales, however it is a very well designed and well brewed beer. I could go a few rounds with this and boy.

This beer lays the smack down on you like a wwe wrestler. Big hoppy flavour with hints of citrus on the nose make for a powerful beast of a brew with a soft caramel color. The finish is slightly tart.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great fruity aroma - not quite as intense flavour - great bitterness - well balanced - solid APA but needs more personality.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light orange pour with slight haze and thin off white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste follows nose. Pine and citrus is a little muted. Not bad. Could drink a lot, but not a top 20%we.
