Cconners (11) - Tauranga, - FEB 29, 2008
Last one from my 4 pack,but not my last one from this brewery. This bottle poured an attractive amber colour with slighly more carbonation than the other in the range, an off white head . The beer smells of citrus and grapefruit which I am told is a characteristic of the american hop that was used. The taste is well balanced and interesting more delicate than the others, very drinkable. The finish is very resiny and lingering with a citrus taste which is slightly bitter and refreshing. A great beer for a hot day.

suurjuust (2661) - ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2016
Semi-clear golden amber beer, small quickly diminishing off-white head. Nose is hoppy, citrus, grainy and malty sweetness, mango. Flavor is hoppy, citric, malty, fruit notes, but itís flat and lifeless, also thin. Finishes with malt, fruit and thin metallic notes. Not great.

TedE (814) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2015
NYE Extravaganza 2. 500ml bottle into shaker. Gusher! Scent of orange peel and lavender. Hazy golden beer with thin film on top. Crisp flat mouthfeel leading to a dry grainy bitter finish, a little fruit present. As APAís go, quite mellow. Good quaffer.

mrjez (356) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 12, 2015
From old notes. 500ml bottle from Costco. Pours a slightly hazy light amber, finger of white head, bubbly. Smells nice, tastes good. A malty feel with some nice piney hop notes coming through. A little floral or tropical toward the finish, gentle bitterness. Just a bit aqueous and light-bodied over a whole bottle, needed a little more punch with both malt and hop body.

TET (2466) - Kaarina, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2015
A slightly orange beer, a head is small and almost white. Aroma has biscuits, some caramell, citrusfruits and wood. Taste has wood and biscuits, the bitterness is quite mild but still itís drying enough the mouth. Quite light bodied, easy to drink. Wooden vision, nevertheless, quite fresh.
