Love their harvest series. Fresh hops here are excellent. Fruity green grassy huge aroma. Nice use of malts to mellow out what may have been to astringent. Perfect balance perfect beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: clear amber in color with an ample multi-density head that lasts and leaves plenty of lacing on glass.
Smell: earthy and floral hop aroma with a significant medium toasted malt component. 6.7% ABV is evident.
Taste: immediate hop hit; hoppy throughout but with a detectable malt backbone in mid-taste. Turns more piney, grapefruity and bitter in the finish. Unique hop profile: must be the fresh NZ hops.
Mouthfeel: medium body and carbonation. Crisp throughout with very mild bite up front and a semi-dry finish.
Overall: Very good, certainly, but not up with the Northern Hemisphere version.

The aroma is great, sweet dark fruit, brown sugar, maple syrup, has Belgian strong ale smell. A nice foamy head. The taste is actually kind of thin, really easy to drink though, basically a slightly jacked up session IPA with a great aroma.

Just had a second go with this lovely beer after 2013 version of this. Just as good as first one. This IPA has been set as a very good standard of IPA in my tasting notes. Pleasant lingering of citrusy and hoppy with a gentle kick at the first sip. Gotta love this bottle anytime of year over a fine tune!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich amber colour with delicate aromatic hops and roasted malts. Like the aroma, the hop bitterness is very delicate and has a tropical fruit lingering flavour. On the palate it is medium bodied with a smooth and delicate lingering bitter finish. Very nice!
