3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Botte (in NZ). Pours a hazy orange with a large foamy head. Big biscuity malt aroma, with fruity hops reminiscent of fruit salad. Dry and bitter palate, with a strong malty flavour - not so sugary - but definitely caramal. A bit of sweetness in the finish, but the hoppy bitterness takes care of that.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is ok. Itís not bitter in the sense that you feel a lash on the palate, and it has a lot of front end malt and sweetness. There is a whole fluffy mouthfeel to this that in some respects makes this a bit uncomfortable to drink, and Iíd be unsure if it would last a session, However. It is however a lovely easy drinking beer that offers a lot of things to discover, looks ok, and Iíd go another. but then Iíd stop. If I had a mind to keep beers in my fridge for when friends popped over for a chat Iíd not be uncomfortable serving this to them.

650ml bottle. Cloudy orange body, medium yellow head with excellent retention and plenty of comb-like lacing. Fresh aroma: caramel, grapefruit, floral hops, mango. Taste of sweet malt, bitter herbal hops, spices, oranges. Nice, refreshing and without the extreme hop bitterness so popular these days.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque-orange in color with a bright white head, this easy IPA has a very distinctive aroma thatís earth and spicy. Nice. Itís light and soft in the mouth, but well hopped. The malts are sweet, but not overpowering, leading to an easy, light finish thatís potently hopped, yet still gentle. Soft. Nice-well hopped.
