3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at William K Kurvi, 20140311) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had black currant leaves, grapefruit and mildly malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grapefruit, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. Too one dimensional brew: only the very dominating fruitiness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@wka. Orange hazy, nicely lasting head. Super nz-hoppy nose; green berries, gooseberries, some curranty leaves. Dry, bitter, and flavourful. Hoppy citrus, really resinous. I’d like a bit more caramel softness for this to be perfect, but really nice as is.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very refreshing west coast style IPA.
Appearance: light amber, clear with a big white head that drops rather fast but doesn’t disappear completly. Pretty nice lacing, but nothing special I guess.
Aroma is of citrusy hops, very fresh and pleasant. Grapefruit, mango and a bit of pine.
Taste: very hoppy, lots and lots of grapefruit, mango and so on. Zero traces of alcohol. Mild bitterness, however it lasts a bit too long.
Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation.
Overall it’s a very tasty, decent and well balanced beer, but it’s nothing special really.
Enjoyed from a shaker glass
