2016-05-15. Hazy orange body with a nice foamy off white head. 3++ Aroma of doughy biscuity malt. Muted hops. Flavour is hoppy, good amount of bitterness up front, moderate fruit blends with a fair bit of resinous hops. Muddled citrus has notes of pithy grapefruit seed and sweet lemon. Fruit grows as it warms but malt and moderate alcohol dominate over it. 7+ Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation.3+ decent. 7/4/7/3/16+ Bottle from Henry’s, Queenstown, NZ.

500ml bottle. Soon as this is open I can smell citrusy goodness. Pour is pretty special with a mega looking head. Golden smoky appearance. Taste is citrus with malty tones. This is a super fresh find. Just arrived at the bottle shop. Gets my vote.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Murky amber body with a thick white head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel and vine tomatoes. Flavour of grapefruit, melon, toffee and peppery hop spice with a bold, bitter finish. Medium to full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. It’s not particularly clean (this was the end of the keg, to be fair) but it’s absolutely loaded with hops and I like that.

A super-hoppy sensation! Surprisingly palatable once you get over the initial massive hit of hops. A lovely complex flavour. A winner
