3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oooo man. Light amber, small bubbly head that rings. Holy shit what a savage first 10 minutes put out by the Oilers vs the Stars. Malty biscuit, apricot, Rrgf, pineapple juice, maybe some caramel. The aroma dropped off big time but I still like. Slight flowery tropical note. Good taste - it’s got power but power that is under control. Huge hops balanced well with the same malts I found in the aroma. The grapefruit is in the twilight Zone between ruby red and unsweetened, perfume, Nelson memories, tropical, citrus goodness, last sip shows some spice. I dig. I think Armageddon was better, different beers.

Bloody good beer! A shame it costs so much in the UK. Kiwi craft ale is fantastic. A true hoppy flavour.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cl bottle. Pours deep gold with medium, compact white head. Mouth-watering aroma with pine, resin, creamy toffee/candy and apricots. Same notes, but perhaps a little more subtle, in taste and finish. Nicely balanced with a soapy, almost basic mouth-feel. Well constructed brew!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange with a nice white head. Smell is first of a bit of peach and grapefruit, alcohol is present, some catpiss... Taste is really floral, with some spicy resiny, malt backbone is just some sweetness, feels like some sugar is in it, the hop profile is nz hop, but still not that juicy which I would like it, it’s actually even kind of mellow, and alcohol is a bit too forward.
