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.

Aroma. Smells mainly of caramel with some slight hoppiness. Appearance. Pours a nice earthy red colour. Taste. Toffee and bread flavours really some to come through here, though with not too much sweetness, considering the lack of hoppiness i wouldn’t really call it an ipa. Overall. I bought this beer wanting to try a new ipa, whilst bean a good beer it certainly doesn’t deliver in the ipa department.

Golden colour with a white head. Medium carbonation. The label states ’IPA’ but at just 35 IBU, this is stretching the definition. Citrus and pine aromas typical of cascade hop usage sonera grassy with a smooth malt usage. Easy drinking, but not a good example of the style

k0mpsa (937) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Tap at brewers arms, christchurch. Deep golden color, white head. Aroma is malty, fruity and some hops. Taste is much like british ipas, rich malty, hops and fruity. Easy going.

Very average, definitely not an IPA, or the kind I was expecting. Lacking in hop flavour and depth.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Monteith valt over het algemeen tegen. Ze weten heus wel te brouwen maar is naar mijn idee gebrouwen voor een groot publiek. Alles is erg vlak van smaak. Niet echt craftbeer te noemen.

Druid (82) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2013
Is this even an IPA? A complete lack of typical hop aromas and lacking in flavour. A mild bitterness on the finish but overall a very poor example of an IPA

Rulymel (91) - SPAIN - SEP 11, 2013
Pale ambar colour with a thin head. Fruity aroma with soft hop. Too much light for an IPA, too much simple. Fruity taste with medium hops and sweet unfortunate notes. Not a good beer at all. Just, pass...

Jado (436) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2013
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of light apple, white bread and lemon. The taste is gently crisp like white grapes overlaying gentle malt. Can’t detect any distinct hop flavours, much less IPA characteristics. Clean finish with a light citrus finish. Aqueous body with a tin mouth feel. An OK thirst quencher, but no way is this an IPA.

Bottle from 1st Choice. Clear copper, 2cm frothy head, quickly dissipated, strong metallic aroma/flavour, some grassy hops, a bit peppery, but spoilt by the metallic tang.
