3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: Very good good DIPA. The aroma wasn’t as strong for me but still quite nice. Very drinkable especially considering the alcohol content and the amount of hop flavour in the beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear deep gold body, small white foam.
Restrained nose; passionfruit & citrus hop. Plenty of toasty, light caramel malt.
Rich on the palate, moderate carbonation, somewhat thick & chewy, oily sensation lingers.
Hits home harder on the body - plenty of golden syrup & pale malt sweetness to pave way for big hop flavours of guava, pepper, ripe rockmelon, passionfruit. Strong bitterness to finish.
The abv of this is somewhat an afterthought! Serious stuff - a great showcase of Kiwi hops!

Det som var riktigt bra med denna DIPAn var balansen, både i smaken och kroppen.

Inte så ipig! Rätt lugn smakar som en vanlig ipa, inget speciellt men inget direkt fel på den heller.

Little carbonation. Beautiful floral aroma. Smell of mango among the citrus. Despite hinting at being tangy the mouthfeel is quite gentle. Again the mango comes through in taste. Pleasant finish, not too bitter.

500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Orange amber, yellowish head. Mango pineaple & hop aroma. Again mango & tropical fruit flavour. Strong alcohol hop and mango aftertaste. Very good but a bit too strong for me.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500 ml bottle "CONTAINS APPROX 3.4 STANDARD DRINKS" Allrighty then. Mostly clear bright orange, fading off-white foam kind of lasts. Pungent aroma of tropical fruity Kiwi hops and citrus zest. Absolutely delicious tropical fruity Kiwi hop taste, solid soft sweet malts, some caramel and evergreen, a bit boozy. Softer than average carbonation, medium-full bodied, aggressively hopped. Damn good. NFL (Not For Lagerboys) Perhaps I will change my username to NZ-IPAboy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, pours golden and clear. Good nose, grapefruit/passion fruit also some pine. Same type of thing going on the palate as well but with a hint of caramel sweetness, not the longest finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich golden, visible carbonation and a tight knit white bubbly film capped head down to the last drop. Pine and pineapple, updraft of white grapefruit. Sunshine hops, bright and clean without being anywhere near cheesy.
Good crisp grapefruit dunt from the get go, toothpick chewy satisfying light woodiness lurks in the shadows of the hops throughout. Burnt out mango quenches the sweetness without any grating cheesy hops - the balance here is sublime whilst still satisfying any hop addict twitches.
Finish is Honeycomb ice cream, clean gummy lime linger. Amazing sweet/bitter fusion without being overly rich. Delicious I also want to give bonus points for using the word Ichor in the description.
