Clear golden color with a thin white head. Big, bright citrus and pine hop nose. This is definitely a hop head beer. The flavors include orange juice, ruby red grapefruit, pineapple, apricot jam, and some pine. Not the most balanced beer, but it is very tasty for those who want a lot of hops in beer.

Cybercat (3257) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
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!

Cask @ The Counting House JDW. Golden amber colour, good head. Citrus resin hop aroma. Fruity hop flavour. Smooth with bitter aftertaste. This is a good one.

Keg at Hanging Bat. Aromas are peach and grapefruit, touch of bread. Taste a good balance of sweet and bitter. Medium bodied, creamy texture, good carbonation. Finishes bitter but refreshing. A superior IPA!

In bottle, thanks Matt. Pours a lovely golden colour with a thick and rocky beige head. Great kiwi hop aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with similar resinous flavours. Well balanced alcohol with moderate carbonation. Just a little CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice with lingering pine and passion fruit flavours.

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

Martinus (2782) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2012
Orange golden colour, little white head. Aroma with pronounced NZ hops, fruity Sauvignon blanc wine, grapefruit, lychee, floral hop tones. Light sweet malty flavour, fruity bitter hops. Very pronounced hops. Light to medium body. Long hoppy finish, quite floral. Nice!
