The aroma was somewhat subdued, hops, fruit and citrus zest. Pours a clear caramel color with a lasting white head with fine lacing.

I thought that there was something missing in the middle of this, there is a lovely bitter upfront and the finish is nice and medium-dry, Enjoyed the citrus zest thing, mostly orange for me, and the aroma is bigger than the taste implied.

Cloudy pour from tap. Milky head. Bit of butterscotch in the flavour. Leaves a lingering malty finish. Quite interesting. Quite good.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 5, 2014
The head is good, body cloudy, orange-brown. It smells citrus-orange, malty, hoppy. The taste is fruity, malty, hoparomatic, sweet-orange-citrus. Delicious!

Travlr (19935) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Draft. Hazy amber color, small white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and light citrus. Taste is fruity and balanced.

This was really nice. Lovely stewed fruit flavours that finish with a real grapefruit like tartness/bitterness. A really nice and different beer.

beer-yum (1212) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 9, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 A very good IPA with an antipodean slant. Well balanced for the style. Would be at the top of the list if it wasn’t for the excellent local competition.

lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 2, 2013
from memory, had 14/02/2013. most distinctive feature is the lovely, perhaps slightly sticky tropical fruits. nz hops well balanced. very, very drinkable.

Hand pulled draught @ Fork & Tap in Arrowtown (recommended). Hazy copper-brown pour with decent white head that retains. Lots of fruity NZ hops on the nose on top of caramel malts. Smooth sessionable palate with nicely balanced flavours and a decent hop bitterness. This reminds me of an English style Extra Strong Bitter. A cracking beer to stumble across on our travels in NZ.

My first beer from Twisted Hop. This is absolutely awesome. If there is any factor that should raise New Zealand’s "liveability" standing in those bullshit OECD polls they publish, NZ beers like this is one of them. The other one, of course, is the fishing grounds in the Hauraki Gulf. Just sayin’.
