3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Body has a hazy deep orange color. The fluffy white head has decent retention and leaves a nice lacing. Nose has oranges, pine, honey, floral notes and some spiciness. Taste starts off a little sweet and is quickly cut by a strong smooth bitterness that leaves a nice long finish. Carbonation is lively and the palate a little above average. Extremely nice aromas and very good balance. of maltiness and hoppy bitterness

Pleasant aroma. Strong hop presence - NZ and English? 90% Clarity, pours with moderate head and light amber in colour. Good malty taste, citrus and bitterness. Good balance. Nice body and finish. Probably better balanced than my favourite the Hop Zombie, but not as much character.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 20 oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip. The aroma is initially doughy with some pine spice and citrus. As it warms up, and the head fades, caramel and bread scents dominate. It pours a sparkling clear honey-gold color with a fluffy, white head. The head is soft & creamy and dissipates relatively slowly. The head also presents a nice lacing - more so as it warms up - evenly distributed around the glass; consisting mostly of small lace with some medium lace which runs down when the beverage is cooler, but sticks at room temp. The hops’ bitterness comes through strongest on the sip, with some caramel malt sweetness in the undertones - the caramel malt becoming stronger near the back end of the pour. The lively carbonation is present throughout the glass along with the citrus and pine notes from the hops. The hop spiciness sticks around through this drier drink with a thin, soft mouthfeel; it leaves behind a resin aftertaste that lingers, but has a very refreshing / cleansing feel. Overall a very refreshing and pleasant IPA.

Aroma is of caramel and stale hops. Color is amber with excellent clarity. Taste has an excellent malt flavor of caramel, earth, leather most of the hop floral notes of waned leaving a stale hop taste. I would like to try this one fresh to give it a proper evaluation. Excellent mouth feel with a nice bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel body, clear, close to no head. centennial / cascade orange, flowers and resin and maraschino cherry and sweet tea with
medium-full body, high acid, priclly hop acids, artificial sweetener and fruit cup. some green onion... dry finish, or seemingly dry finish, so thankfully it’s not a sugary IPA but it sure is "big" and has a lot of resin and fruit cocktail hoppiness thast I don’t go for. high dose of crystal malt doesn’t help either. From draft at Andrew Andrew in Auckland.
