Draft. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of nelson hops, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of nelson hops, caramel, and malt, leading to a very bitter finish.

Dark amber-brown and hazy. Nice lacing.
Aroma is citrus, crystal malt, taste is lightly hoppy, med bitterness that is quite clean. Less crystal than the aroma, though it comes out more in the finish. Good balance.

amber brown color. Big fresh hoppy nose. Small dollop of butterscotch in the mouth with apricots, citrus and apples. Moderate bitter finish. Well balanced. More of an extra pale ale, than an ipa. Very enjoyable.

On tap at The Scratch. Great ipa with loads of pine needle aromas with some floral hop aromas also in the mix. Full in the mouth and flavour lingers on the palate.

Taster at Beervana NZ. "Bitter" - that’s an understatement. Hop head heaven.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 On tap at Beer Quartet. Pours opaque copper with a small beige head. Nice nose of balanced caramel malts and citrus hops. The malts back this one very well. Caramel/toffee malts which succumb to a lingering citrus and hop bitterness with great length. Fantastic beer for their first one. They won the Beer of Choice at Beervana 3 out of the 4 sessions and I think they thoroughly deserved that accolade

Bottle. Just hazy amber with a modest beige head. Pungent grassy/ tropical/ zesty citrus Kiwi hop aroma. Lots of biting aromatics, meek plainish caramel, thumpingly bitter finish. Bit of a chainsaw on a chopstick, this one.

On tap at Cookie. Nice and fruity, with great balance. Caramel, cherries, grass in the aroma. Taste is sweet and bitter, very well balanced; long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.
