Crisp yet sweet and fun to drink a real monster NZ APA. Classic yet malt and very well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at 16 Tun. Aroma is all sweet pine. Taste has pine, some tropical mango and, dare I say it, some anchovy-esque savouriness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours a nice amber. Pleasant aroma. Medium to full body, not so crispy and a bit too bitter. Nice fruity flavours, passionfruit, banana, hints of berries. Overall a very pleasant ale.

Stellar beer. Aromas of lemon peel, orange peel, grapefruit, passionfruit, kiwi and faint banana. The flavour is an equally stunning bouquet with no overbearing bitterness. Great beverage

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2016-05-07. Lightly hazy dark yellow body, nice creamy beige head. 3+ Aroma is mild, lightly doughy malt, sweet orange and citrus peel. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout. Mild Muddled but pleasant citrus melange. Minerally lemon-lime character grows in the aftertaste as it warms. Average to light bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 3+ Enjoyable, but less assertive hop profile than my preference. 7/3-4/7/3/14-16 Bottle from Glengarry Wines, Auckland, NZ.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out biscuity malt and light citrusy and piney hops, seems a bit faded in the hops. Flavour is clean, with light pine and citrusy hops, with a wet biscuity malt backbone. Clean and well-balanced. Doesnít seem as fresh as possible, but itís quite good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a stubbie. Pours a delightful gold with some cloudyness, and a light fluffy head that hangs around for most of the drinking. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit and simcoe (?) hops. Taste changes considerably as it warms. Light and fruity when cold, bitter pine dominates as it warms, with some bready malt in there too. Sessionable for an APA, but still complex and enough to keep most hop-heads happy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 Right in the zone for an APA. Resin dominates, with a little fruitiness thrown in. Great bitterness and balance. Only 6% so is surprisingly sessionable

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE. Poured see through gold with thin white head that disappeared quickly.. Fruity nose, lemongrass & subtle citrus notes.. Big mix in the taste, hop flower, solid malt texture, going to more fruit hops that leaves a solid resin mouth feel.. Sourced Cape Cellars
