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

Cybercat (4172) - 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!

DanielBrown (4163) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
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.

AshtonMcCobb (4133) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
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.

Martinus (4065) - Baarle-Nassau, 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!

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.

jsquire (3799) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2012
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.

Holmen1 (3739) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2015
Flaske delt ombord på Fridtjofen, RBHD-treff aug-15: uklar strågul med hvitt skum. Innbydende, frisk aroma av New Zealand-humler (stikkelsbær, mango, aprikosmarmelade mm). Nydelig, fruktig smak, balansert og med middels bitter ettersmak. Vi sukker fornøyd, en betimelig opptur.
