Fantastic beer, copper in the glass, not much head, slight lacing, super hoppy. Overall lovely beer.

Copper/golden in color with a respectable head. Smells like fresh, grassy hops with a hint of citrus. The citrus comes out in the flavor, mostly grapefruit with some lemon as well. Refreshing and not too heavy, body semi-creamy at the front, followed by a dryness I often associate with rye. Pleasantly bitter but not overwhelmingly so with a finish that hangs around for a minute.

Bottle: clear light orange with bubbly off white head. Musty, dank basement aromas, faint caramel malts, Lager yeast? This beer must be a bit past it's prime as there's some decent bitterness but a really lacking hop profile. OK at best.

50cl bottle pours clear copper with gold edges and off white head. The aroma is spicy to almost cedar wood spice, floral hops and a lime like citrus note. The taste has a hoppy mix of floral hop bitterness, spicy hops and lemon to lime citrus like notes. Interesting bright to acidic hop notes.

Haven’t had much of the epic range, but this was reasonable. Solid pale ale with some bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light copper amber with a good long-lasting head and full lace. A terrific melding of caramel malt and floral hops. Both twirl around each other through the finish with just a touch of bitter lingering after the rest is gone. I didn’t know New Zealand had good beers. Easy drinking, a real keeper (except for the cost per bottle!).

Nice solid amber poor. Big fruity aroma, when tasted is bordering on almost to intense and over bearing for my taste. Very slight bitterness and a faint funny taste present as an after taste that wasn’t very tasty at all.
