Very pale straw yellow with a white but quickly disappearing head. Pineapple nose with a hint of bread. More pineapple in the taste with a whole lot of passionfruit. A light refreshing IPA.

Appears totally out of style for its designation, but this is an issue for ratebeer, insofar as I know New Zealand beer. It is pale gold with a puffy white head. Aromas of gooseberry and lime pith, similarly reflected in the flavour. Mild with herbal grassiness and some lemon, lime and tartness. Tasty, understated and obliging.

Cloudy straw yellow color with big head. Aroma of tropical fruits, a hint of pine. Taste begins with a bit of pines, then the tropical fruits take over. Low carbonation, little malt backbone, and light body. A superb Pale Ale, just a bit too light for an over-the-top rating.

Clear golden with a decent white covering.
Nose is passionfruit, pine notes, light skunky hops, grapefruit.
Taste comprises floral notes, grapefruit, tangerine, citric sherbets, passionfruit, mandarin.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with juicy hop bitterness.
Solid cask APA.

Golden with a thin, lasting white head, some floating sediment. Fresh grassy hops and juicy grapefruit in the nose. Taste is initially bitter hops and again grapefruit with an underlying maltyness. It’s good stuff

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 500 ml bottle at Il Maltese. Pale gold, slightly hazy, with a tiny, bubbly, moderately persistent white head. A true tropical fruit explosion, intense, powerful and quite fresh. Very hoppy, notes of mint, bubblegum, pine needles, quite leafy and "green", if that makes any sense. Slightly astringent, moderately bitter but very clean, tasty and aromatic. Tiny malt backbone, tropical fruity aftertaste. Soft carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Lovely.

Light hazy straw yellow coloured beer with quite delicate head on top but lots of nice lacing. Aroma has lots of tropical fruits from the Nelson Sauvin hops. There is citrus and grapefruit too. Nicely fresh aroma. Taste starts with citrus and grapefruit. Then sweeter tropical fruits kick in. Not that bitter so pretty nice fresh APA. Medium body with medium carbonation. Excellent fresh American Pale Ale. Or one could say, South Pacific Pale Ale.

Citrus fruits and Mangos in the taste. Fine carbonation, golden pale color and superb hoppy bitterness.

Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants (Mill Road). Straw colour, clear. Impressive but short-lived white head. Decent fruity aroma: citrus, pineapple, lemon drops. Well-balanced taste: bitter but not too much so. Turns to a luscious lemony sour-bitter at the end. Nice touch. Just the right amount of carbonation.
