Draft at Burger Bach in the Village This may be my first new Zealand beer. The ale poured a cloudy amber with a nice white head formation. The white head turned to lacing down the glass. There was a warm bitterness that at first was citrus like or floral hops. The finish was more pine resin like. A complex balanced beverage with an excellent ABV. The medium body ale had average carbonation. This is very drinkable Imperial IPA.

Amber wth a slight haze. No head to speak of. Rich chewy crystal malts on the nose. Slight melon/citrus, but chewy. Kiwi hops are not good for this type of beer.

Slightly hazy dark golden with a thin white cap. The aroma has this hoppy passion fruit tone that’s a bit juicy but also a bit piney. Taste is similar but heavier on the pine resin with some grapefruit and passion fruit tones followed by a piney resin bitterness I wasn’t too fond of, and a dry leafy finish with a slightly acidic grapefruit flavor on the aftertaste.

On tap. Pours a medium gold color with a white head. The aroma has lots of tropical fruit as well as resin and some citrus. The flavor is bright, fruity hops up front with a malt backbone and a slightly syrupy, bitter finish over a medium-heavy body.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Draft at Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta. Hazed ruby tones. Burnt apples, burnt maraschino cherries, burnt peaches, nutty and bready. Fruit cocktail mishmash. Medium-full body with abusive sweetness, dear lord. Highly bitter, lots of caramelized sugar, goopy sugar syrup texture.

Coopers, NYC tap: Pours slightly hazed orange with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, floral bouquet, tree, earthy dirt, and sweet malts. Taste is rather bitter with a veritable hop sting. Very fresh tasting. Certainly qualifies as a sipper in the world of DIPAs. Slightly sweet.
