4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted on tap at Fine Wine Delivery Co. Crisp golden colour with a lovely amount of head. Lively aroma of citrus and passion fruit hits the nose without being overpowering. One of the most aromatic beers. The first sip is scintillating, arousing all senses as it dances over the taste buds. Perfectly balanced with a clean finish, the 8.5% is easily drinkable enticing the next mouthful, need to be careful when drinking by the litre. One of my all time favourite beers which continues to impress year after year.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2015 Is there a better beer in the world? Massive aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and pine and even more power on the tongue. There are so many tastes that build on each other and cause your eyebrows to raise. Citrus, mango, pineapple, grass, leather... I can’t even begin to list them

500ml bottle from New World Saint Martins, Christchurch. Pours clear amber, very beautiful. Strong grassy nose, foreshadowing what will come once you take a sip: A fruity, citric, complex combination of hops, well balanced and interesting even towards end.
