3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In the slightly darkened surroundings of Volstead, this beer looked for all money like a darkish IPA with only a suggestion of haze to betray its wheaty origins. The aromas are intensely tropical with bananas, passionfruit, guavas and some woody spices there. The aromas are reflected in the flavours with gratifying fruity bitterness, some spice and herbal grassiness being the hallmarks for me. It had a lengthy finish, but it wasn’t until the bottom of the second pint I got to experience this because I kept going back for extra mouthfuls and a top-up. Were it not for me driving, it could have been a beautiful and enduring match, this beer and me.

23rd August 2015
Hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and crisp. Thin creamy malts. Yeast. Little fresh orange, bitterish pith. Fairly strong bitterness develops. Not getting much Nelson here. Finishes smooth with touches of hop spice, citrus peel and lemon. Overall slightly disappointing, was hoping for much more Nelson from a NZ brewed beer!

Beerfest Asia, Singapore on 26/06/15. 50cl bottle. Hazy golden amber colour with a medium sized white head. Medium carbonation. Light aroma of yeast, fruit spices. Flavours of lemon, banana, coriander. Some herbal flowery grassiness and ending bitterness. Better than some others in the Moa stable, drinkable, but not really sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale amber with a fading head.
Nose shows floral perfume, herbal hops, soft doughy wheat. Incredibly herbaceous and floral.
More herbal hops as a flavour, definitely dominant. Some light wheat behind.

Pours pale gold with little head. Coriander, mint, and orange & grapefruit peel in the nose. Flavor is towards the wit side with wheat and Orange flavors. Assertive bitterness reveals its IPA lineage. Clean and refreshing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold, pee coloured pour with no head to speak of. Citrusy, winey, spicy aroma. Taste is oranges, spice, grassy, slightly bitter. It’s not bad but I’m just not sold on it

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy medium golden with very little fine white head. Nose is a bit of citrus, some Belgian phenolics, a tiny bit of Nelson character. Not as hop forward as I would have expected for something calling itself an IPA. Flavor has spicy belgian yeast notes, bread dough, a little banana, some citrus bitterness. Not particularly hoppy. I hate to say, but I think this is another instance of Dan Murphy’s not being careful with their beer. Don’t buy hoppy things from them, because they’ll be all gone by the time you drink it.
This tastes like a reasonably well made beer, but it suffers from poor handling.

Interesting one this, looks like a hazy Wit and has lots of hops and spice with a yeasty character. Not bad at all.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy white cream. Aroma is spice. Taste is tangy bitterness. Not very sessional and not my sort of bitterness - a spicy bitter flavour.
