4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Great Grog. Pale orange amber, thin white head fades to a tight ring. Nicely juicy nose - peaches, elderflower perhaps, citrus peel, really quite resinous actually, smells like an IPA. Lovely palate, tropical fruits, really ripe and juicy, crisp, clean but rich pils-ey malts with a big resinous, pithy hop profile, soft foamy carbonation and a lingering pithy finish. I think I actually prefer this to the NZPA. Super-refreshing, totally my thing. Nice one!

Thanks Colin for this bottle. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. An amazing aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with a great chewy passion fruit character. Alcohol is fairly prominent with mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Lovely!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BeerHive, Edinburgh
Bright golden, crystal clear, frothy white head than dissipates, some lacing
Aroma - juicy fresh grapefruit, hint of lemon, golden quit sweet pale malts, slight floral note, soft orange zest, very slight grass, fresh aroma
Taste - citrus grapefruit, fairly bitter zest tempered by the golden bit spicy sweet pale malts, bit of lemon zest, slight creaminess, very fresh flavour
Palate - soft carb, medium body, bit oily but still light mouthfell without being cloying. Bitter zest in the middle and a little creamy again, the 6% is noticeable but it’s still crisp. Finish - more bitter zest citrus, some more spicy hop comes through, dry, lingering bitter finish
It’s good but I just prefer the NZPA which gets 3.8
