3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Light golden with little head to it. Expected more of a hopped tropical fruit explosion than the crisp but mild pale ale that it is. Aroma is stronger and promises more than the small grapefruit led citric taste provides.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Pale amber with a thin white head; sweet tropical fruit aroma; full of fruity flavours, clemantine and satsuma to start, then becoming more grapefruity, and with a strong, sharp, cirusy bitterness; and a lingering finish. A really good Pacific style IPA.

Bottle. Golden with a small head. Bitter with some hopiness.Very clean taste with the bitterness overpowering the hop presence which surprised me. A good if not exceptional one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours pale yellow, with not much of the head variety. Smells like the bread counter in a Polski Sklep. Taste is initially ’not massive’, with only a frozen pond topping of lemon; but through the finish it grows and grows into a very dry hoppy beast. As I said, very dry. The hops are supremely refreshing and it has a good lightness on the tongue. Cuts through thirst.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden with a fairly thick ivory head. Aroma has a tempting tone of fresh hops, with hints of malt and tropical fruit. Hops really come out in the flavor, riding undertones of malt and sweet tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is smooth, reasonably firm, not very fizzy, leaving a mango and hoppy finish. A toast to the Kiwis!

Bottle from bitter virtue@ home
Managed to identify green bullet, riawka and motueka by nose alone before reading the label, feeling proud! Pale blonde with lots of grape and citrus in the flavour, gentle carbonation and very easy drinking for its strength. Fantastic

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Beer Hall.
Appearance - golden with a slight haze and a nice head.
Nose - intense mango and grapefruit.
Taste - loads more grapefruit with a touch of that sweet mango.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - the finish is almost too dry but still retains decent balance.
