Wonderful pacific pale, similar to the other well hopped hawkshead beers, with a distinctive tasting citrusy hop with lots of depth. Refreshing and dry.

Aroma is very fruity with very hoppy notes
Taste is bitter sweet with citrus flavours and a long biiter dry finish

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Tweedies Bar, Grasmere. Murky gold with a thin white head. Big citrus and floral hit with a very dry finish. Loads of hops here but lacked the depth and balance of ghe Hardknot Infra-Red I’d had just before, and maybe suffered by comparison. Still decent though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
17 o bottle. Pours golden with a slight orange hue. Nice and refreshing. Grapefruit, pine, resin, passionfruit and floral notes and a nice balance/ crispness to it. Not wimpy, but the NZ hops are somehow a bit less arrogant? in-your-face? than the American equivalent. Finishes with an pleasant bitterness. Really good.

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!
