3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear, copper, nice foamy off white head and lots of lacing. Nose is mostly malts, some fruit and there are some and hops in there too. Very nicely balanced beer; starts sweet (caramel), slight bitterness from hops fruit notes. Solid IPA, very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Stateside Craft, Vancouver; 6.9% ABV
Hazy amber color with creamy head, nice lace. The malt profile is not bad, rather simple though; but it fails mainly on the hop side; it has some hop resins and very limited hop fruitiness, but it’s also dusty, not at all what is expected (tasted in January).

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle 2014 label. Aroma: not much maybe some banana, taste: fruit, bitterness, alcohol. Finish: lingering bitterness and alcohol. Not bad but expecting more but seems slightly oxidised why the bastards at 1st choice liquor are selling so "cheap on special" for AUD $8.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour into goblet. Nice thick white head, about an inch at first pour. Leaves great lacing behind as it recedes. Aroma is very malty, nutty, roasty with hints of butterscotch and banana. Appearance is reddish, like old copper. Taste is a bit of a letdown to me -- kind of sour, not heavy but medium and bitters are lacking the "oomph" I expected. More malty than hoppy, I guess that’s to be expected from a 2013 brew in 2015. I want to try it fresh.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
