3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy golden orange with a short creamy head. Sweet nelson hop aroma, tropical fruits, lychee and resin. Taste is very sweet, like a honey and booze sweetness. Tropical hop flavours with a huge hop bitterness. Lingering dry bitterness. Nice but very sweet.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650mL bottle. Pours golden with a nice white head and an amazing sweet tropical fruit like aroma. Massive resinous necterine/mango/cherry like flavour which just dominates everything. A nice sweet does provide balance but be under no illusions this beer is very bitter. Wow what a beer, very enjoyable.

There is a gorgeous collision of citrus tones, like grapefruits, that bang against grassiness, and altogether they have a really long lengthy taste.. Thereís not a lot a sweetness in this, itís fairly harsh at the edges. But giddy up and get me another !

Bottle. Clear gold with a white head. Resinous tropical fruit aroma - passionfruit, lychees, gooseberries, lime leaf. Really didnít get any grapefruit. Lowish carbonation works for me. Sweetish but without caramel, avoids being fruit salad-y. Strong bitterness and pepper emerge from the fruit. A hell of a lot of fun.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is no shrinking violet. It unsubtly screams citrus, passionfruit, (is it maybe over ripe apricots as well?) and resin. Gorgeous. Itís a very dynamic aroma: in the background the apricot rolls into a yeasty bread cooking in the oven smell which then rolls into some kind of roast nut... but thereís no way Iím gonna spend my time sniffiní this; itís screaming "Drink me, bi-yatch!" So I drink. Hugely bitter but immediately balanced with the sweet tastes of the aroma. Simple straightforward IPA, unpretentious, and very drinkable.

Very good, but very basic IPA. Itís strong, and itís incredibly drinkable in comparison to other heavy hitting IPAís of itís stature. All in all, it hangs with the best of them, but doesnít take any of the risks that G.P. generally offers.

Hazy tan, mango, papaya, guava, great fruit aroma...hell even maracuya in there. Very bitter, aggressive, dry, fruity-accented hop. Dang tasty.

Looks nice and peachy. Aroma is fruit and hops. Taste is oily with hops and resin in tow. Lingering bitterness. Overall, a good IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 An excellent beer for those who like hops. Definitely one of my favourites - only wish it were more frequently available.

Pint on tap. Poursa nice hazy orange amber with a nice head. Smell is apple and citrusy hops with some nut malts. Taste is super hoppy, bitter with a round creamy mouthfeel.
