3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear amber, creamy white head. Lots of carbonation. Crisp hoppy aroma. Taste, however, is slightly disappoitning. There’s a good hoppy bite, but to me, not enough malts to back it up. Palate is thin. Could have been interesting, now, it’s just another filtered and pasteurized albeit decent IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Fresh fruity aroma, sense of a very crisp bitter ale. Clear glowing orange appearance, shame the head looks like someone has spit in my glass. Good carb the look of the beer just makes me want to drink it (forget the spit), so I will... Smooth, sweet honey texture with a malty bitterness. Slight metallic citrus feel on the palate. A good IPA.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted 29/03/2006. Shared 500ml bottle, at Neil Miller’s Cellar-Vate tasting.
Beautiful, bright, copper-gold. Quite pale but vibrant, with lovely pillowy white head that, unfotunately, doesn’t hold or lace. Very grassy nose, some pepper and a hint of boiled sugar. Grassy hops, again, dominate the mouth also. Little malt profile in the skinny, lightish side of ligh-medium, mouth weight. Low-medium carbonation. Some spiciness through the middle and a short bitter finish. This ale was the last of the tasting (a very nice group of NZ micro pale ales) and it didn’t stand up to the competition.

A deep, amber gold colour, with quite a strong white head. The nose is clean, with a strong, hoppy nose with hints of malt. The taste bitter with strong, hop and malt tones. Has a smooth finish. (Bottle).
