4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a large lasting head.
Nose shows pine, peach, floral hops, sweet rich clean malt and resinous notes.
Similar fruity hops as flavours along with a little pine. A fair whack of sweet malt follows along with a biting, piny bitterness.
Nice mod-high carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The head is ok, body yellow-orange. It smells hoppy, bit dry, bit creamy. The taste is hoparomatic, bit mild, bit creamy, malty. Ok but maybe not the best batch? Bottled - 3.3

From a bottle. Pours a nice golden color. Tastes like an APA should. Hides the 6% well. This is much better than I was expecting. Best beer Iíve had in New Zealand so far (havenít had too many yet). +1 for the cool bottle

East of Everything (26-Jul-13) Big floral pine tropical fruit aroma. Cloudy amber colour decent head and sheet lacing. Sweet pineapple flotal hop spice flavour. Thick mouthfeel, sweet pine floral hop finish and pineapple slight sulphur aftertaste but dies away a bit too quickly.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Hazy golden-amber, nice lasting white head, rich caramel malt, tropical fruit aromas, more like citrus/pine to taste, a really nice, very moreish APA. A standout NZ beer.

Awsome. This would be an IPA any where else but NZ.
Big flavor. Fruity, citrus and pine.
Almost my favorite beer, no maybe it is!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle, pours slightly hazy orange amber with light carbonation and a medium sized slowly dissapating head. Smell is some fruitiness from the hops, citrus some pine. Good medium sized mouthfeel, taste is decently fruity, some woody pine again with a nice amount of bitterness. Great pale ale.
