Pours light copper with a short lived head and nice lacing. Sweet caramel malt aroma with firm spalt hop presence. Great crystal balanced by hop flavour. Water perhaps overcompensates the big crystal character. Dry, bitter finish. Very good ipa balancing the malt of the uk with the hop rates of the us.

The citrus aroma hits first , surprising when the pale color is taken into account . The hoppy taste hits and stays . I personally love the bitter taste in the back of the throut that stays for a while . Itís a bit light on the palate however itís a beer Iíd defiantly drink again . I got this off the tap at a pub so was pleasantly suprised by the quality .

Keg - SkySport Grill, Auckland. Clear golden with a small, fading white head. Lemon, grapefruit, yeasty esters, grassy and leafy hops with good malt character providing body. A clean, crisp IPA with solid balance. Light to medium body belying the strength somewhat. Soft carbonation and a lingering, dry finish.

The head is ok, the body golden. It smells hoparomatic, fruity, amazing fresh. The taste is a bit malty, very hoppy-aromatic, lemon, greapefruit, lemongrassy, fresh, refreshing, super delicious! 12/14/14/13//14

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 A middle of the road brew with no great features or faults. Probably more a Pale Ale than an IPA to my mind/taste though.

Bright and quite earthy, toasty on the nose and a similar palate. Less hoppy than the sparkling. On the light side all around.
