4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2013 Aroma is grapefruit and the more citrusy stonefruits. Taste is hops with a short bite. Fruitiness is slightly subdued in the aged bottle I partook in. Still freaking refreshing and delicious though. Finishes cleanly without resin. Love this beer, but hoping to get my hands on a fresher bottle.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear brilliant golden under a thin white bubbly cap. Lots of earthy pine resins and grapefruit rind on the nose. Flavor is very leafy and earthy bitter with a sweet lemon and orange rind tone and a nice peppery finish. Complex earthy fresh hop peppery flavor with a clean blonde malty finish. Really nice.

Bottle. Pours a gold colour with a white head, the aroma is all passion fruit, bitter hoppy taste with a dry fruity finish.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
An essential double IPA, in my mind it is the best out there. Very strong citrus/floral aromas and strong hoppy notes on the tongue. Very clean aftertaste in comparison to other beers of this alcohol volume. Brilliant.

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.
