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.

mkel07 (3680) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2013
500ml bottle from BWS. Bright orange colour with a small head of foam. Aroma is quite modest with not a lot coming through. In the mouth the beer has good mouthfeel and body. Hints of vanilla in the flavour. Overall not too bad.

Kurtos (103) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2013
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.

kanerjus (58) - orimattila, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2014
tuoksussa häiritsevän terävää viljaisuutta kuin joissain viljaisissa lagereissa. lämmetessä hedelmäisyys nousee enemmän esille ja terävä viljaisuus muuttuu pehmeämmäksi maltaisuudeksi.

Bottled (shared with TBone). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, herbal and toffeeish along with some citrus. Flavour is fruity, floral, wooden, resiny along with some sweet malts and a nice floral long aftertaste.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Falco242, who was good enough to bring it all the way back with him from New Zealand. Fruity aroma with a hint of hops. Hazy amber with visible carbonation and a thin ring of off-white head. Flavor is on the dry side which makes sense considering the low ABV for an IPA. Although the commercial description refers to the beer as a pale ale...odd when the beer label calls it an IPA. Nice, lingering hop finish with some breadiness. Better as a pale ale than as an IPA, although in both cases it is fairly unbalanced in favor of the hops. I’d rather it be in that direction if it’s going to be unbalanced. Still, all style characteristics aside, it qualifies as a pretty good session beer with solid amount of hop bitterness.

laiti (5957) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2014
33 cl bottle @ Cosmic Comic Cafe, BBE 23.03.2015
Aroma is very sweet with fruit candy and caramel. Also some pineapple juice. Flavour is very sweet with glue, resiny tones, caramel, toffee candy and some odd metallic savor. At the end of the glass toffee candy tones take over. Oversweet IPA with some west coast wibes.
