3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 Pleasingly different to my usual NZ IPAs. Slight cloudiness promises a natural and slightly feral drop, with a well rounded hop aroma to boot. Lovely bitterness. Better than most Lion-owned beer, but not one to cross the road for

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
BB 25Jan16. Poured a clear orange brown colour with 5mm of off-white foamy that diminished rapidly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation extremely low and fine. Aroma subtly but inviting of citrus (grapefruit, orange), tropical fruits and malt. Taste strongly of citrus/grapefruit, hints of passionfruit, subtle sweet maltiness; hoppy bitterness dominates. Light body. Clean, crisp, refreshing with malt sweetness and a moderate bitterness on the finish, Quite good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml into tulip glass. Mild orange/tangerine nose. Copper coloured beer with lasting fluffy white head. Quite high carbonation. This has quite a subtle hop bitterness leading to fruity caramel then a long bitter finish, liqourice lurks in the background. Nice beer, dangerously quaffable at 6.4%

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2016 Hazy golden/amber with a medium cream head. Confused aroma of faint citric hops. Taste is bitter and not too pleasant. Kinda soil. Hops give the bitterness and hints of rotten fruit. I had it over 2 years ago and I didn’t remember it was that bad. Mediocre. Hopefully a bad batch.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrusy US hops aromas, like a beefed up version of the pale ale. Comes in a handy four pack to distinguish you from Johnny six-pack.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
American style IPA. Pours a cloudy orange golden colour with an off white creamy foam that dissipates slowly. Has good carbonation. Sweet Apple malt aromas. Slight hoppy bitterness at first but a strong malty finish. medium body mouth feel. Overall a nice beer for those that want the higher ABV but other American pale ales can be just as rewarding without the strength.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad IPA, hazy copper body, creamy off white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of pine, hops and hints of malt. Taste is text book IPA, finish is a tad metallic.
