COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - MAY 19, 2013
Hazy golden yellow with resilient off white head. Aromas of light breads yeast, kiwi fruit, berries, grain and dough. Med body, light caramel graininess. Finishes lightly grassy and fruity

Towey1989 (530) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle at Potters Bar, Meir Heath (Marston’s) Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, herbs, brambles, some pepper, subtle peppermint and grassy hops. Taste of caramel, herbs, subtle grapefruit, some pepper, orange and grassy hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, grainy finish. Really disappointing for an IPA, more like a lager.

Jultsu (274) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Tummahkon hunajan värinen, kevyttä makeutta tuoksussa. Makea myös suutuntuma, tunkkainen, jälkimakuna hapotusta ja siirappisuutta.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Ambar oscura. Dos dedos de espuma, dejando algo menos de medio centímetro. Aroma cereal y herbal no muy pronunciado. Lejos de una IPA. En boca mantiene el carácter malteado, dulce, con un ligero contraste lupulado frutal. Predomina cereal, madera. Solo el final, marcadamente amargo, responde algo al estilo del que está en cualquier caso muy alejado... parece más una bock¡! En cualquier caso, no está mal.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Close to clear in the glass, dark golden in color and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite malty and oxidized, with some perfumed hints and grass. It’s medium to full-bodied and lightly carbonated, semi-sweet, with malty flavors. Bread, oxidized malts and grass. Some bitterness. Lasting finish. Not much IPA’ish going on here. 150524

Geokkjer (6439) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, some floral notes and yeast. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some citrus and herbal notes. Medium body, average carbonation.

Furseth (2021) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle: Clear red colour, nice head. Aroma is dominated of fruits, sweet malts, caramelly. Flavor had a orange, and strench bittternes, thin body, some bitter sweet finish.

jjsint (1339) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at Masonic Arms, Kirkcudbright. Orange/brown with a it of carbonation. Candy sugar and plastic on the aroma. Taste is sweetish, with fruity and plastic overtones. Lovely body and palette but the rest is found wanting. Not sure why someone would make this?

villevav (324) - FINLAND - APR 22, 2015
[2015-03-18, Oluthuone Leskinen, Oulu] Kirkas, kuparinruskea tai hieman sitä vaaleampi. Oiskohan leima vähissä, kun on maussa vähän jauhoja ja muromeininkiä eli corn flakeseja. Tuoksu sinänsä ihan raikas.

Beerheart65 (1116) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 20, 2015
Deep clear amber, sparkling, huge creamy off-white head is medium long, ok lacing. Dry malt and grass, earthy, mildly fruity under this. Light to medium body, dry and bitter, herbs, bit harsh, long finish with malt and grass. Very malty, not very IPA-like flavors.

330ml bottle. Clear copper body with a medium white head. Some caramel and mandarine notes, but mostly bitter and grassy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
