An aggressive, tropical NZ hopped aroma gives way to the rich, copper coloured malt base and a huge lingering bitterness to finish. In an ode to its ancestors, we’ve used all English malts in the grist and a bold English bittering hop in the boil.

Great tasting IPA, if you enjoy the Tutatara APA then you will enjoy 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.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 330ml bottle.Very nice. If I blind tasted this I would have guessed it was an APA. Delicious fruity, resiny, piney hop flavour. Hop aroma just keeps on giving. Good bitterness, essence of tangerine or grapefruit peel in the aftertaste. Re-rate: I’ve had about a dozen of these now and I’m really starting to think of it as my All-Terrain-Vehicle of beers. It tastes good any time with anything, it’s a steadfast rock of a beer and I love it.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Deep amber, slight haze, solid lasting head, fruity, orange/citrus, grassy, pine/resin, caramel/toffee malt, quite bitter finish. Loved this one.

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.

Very nice, every day IPA with a great balance and only a slight bitterness.

Aroma does not give away much for me. Appearance is about as cloudy as they come while keeping a golden colour. If bitter is what you are after there are better beers but this beer balances classic malt character with a sharp bitter finish, a well balanced beer.

330ml bottle from Archive. My first ever Parrot Dog beer as I’d read about the Bitch before. Nice IPA with a very hoppy taste and just the right amount of malt. Nice aroma. Good linger on the palate with the bitterness as described that stays with you. A very good IPA.

One of my favourites and a great Wellington brew, bitter as the name suggests but with some complementary sweetness and malt. Plenty of hops. Delish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour, slightly hazy, with an off white, decent head. Malt, pineapple, mango aromas. Big malty taste, then follows through with pine and fruity bitterness. Really like it - very balanced.
