Draught at Bungalow. Clear gold,big head with decent lacing. Big tropical aroma. Taste is bitter and earthy. Would have liked more tropical fruit flavour.

Tap at CBM jimbocho. Very nice. Minerals and light citrus, lemon sherbert. Light creaminess. Bit grainy. First sip was amazing, lost a little afterwards but still good. Sweet and dry. Good stuff.

Draught at Bungalow. Rich amber, fine head. Brown sugar nose with some sweet fruit in there too. Smooth drinking. Much more bitter than the aromas would suggest, but nicely so. Some cough syrup and fruit in there too. A beauty.

Hazy amber golden color. Nose is fairly undistinguished. Earthy tropical fruit nose. Mouth is moderately bitter not a ton of depth. Ok.

Draught at Osaka BBS 2012. Pretty orange-copper with lace. Lovely, soft, oily nose with mango and tropical fruits, melon, soft malts. Oily, smooth body. Nice malt flavor with great topical fruits, creamy, oily, great.

Robust and well made, if ever so slightly unadventourous. Well balanced, with a good caramel malt body underpinning the pine and soft citrus. Not as ’ragged’ as I have come to expect from Kiwi hops - very refined - like a tight shirt on a bodybuilder, it’s straining with the weight of what wants to be unleashed, but doesn’t fully deliver. Very refreshing though.
