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.

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.

Siki wyczuwalne- zapach po otworzeniu butelki niezbyt silnie .Piwo nie przegazowane .Kolor jasny busztyn piana niezbyt dlugo sie utrzymuje ale za to dobry "lasing" na sciankach .Piwo ma dosc duzo "ciala". Aromat slodowy z nutą owocową calkiem przyjemny ale czy kiwi to bym nie powiedzial . Smak - alkohol wyczuwalny ,goryczka atakuje od razu i pozostaje na kubkach smakowych (goryczka zalegajaca) Po wypiciu polowy zawartosci sniftera aromat znacznie sie poprawil ( aromat moczu " niewielki " wyczuwalny tylko wtedy gdy piwo nie jest wzburzane . Pomijajac tą wade ktora nie jest tak bardzo narzucajaca sie ,piwo ciekawe .

The beer has a IPA look. A nice layer of rough foam forms on top of the beer. It collapses quite fast. Little drapes of foam remain on top of the beer. The color is a nice amber. The beer is very clear and has an almost amber appearance. The beer doesn’t look very lively. The smell is simple. It is very bitter and misses some of the fruitiness an IPA can have. There is a very bitter, earthy hop aroma. It is not as nice as most IPA’s. The taste is also slightly less than in most cases. I miss the rich fruity and tropical hop aromas. There are only earthy hops in this beer. The palate is normal, with normal amounts of mass. It is a nice beer, but not a top player.

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.

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.
