Cask & Cold Filtered Bottle; Regular.
Typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine, this wonderful South Pacific Ale has a great grassy nose with kiwi fruits in abundance. The wonderful fruity mouth gives way to a great bitter finish. 5.2%

Bottle from Waitrose. Lovely colour. Aroma full of lychee, mango, grass. Flavour much the same, with some citrus and bitterness. Really distinctive, delicious beer.

Beerheart65 (971) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Just slightly hazy golden, dense almost cheese-like white thin head that persists nicely and leaves ok lacing. Mild citrus, notes of tropicality, mild pine, nuanced malt underneath this. Round soft feel, dry and mildly bitter, low carbonation, medium long finish, medium body. Tasty and soft toned nuanced and quite refreshing, nice.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours light cloudy gold colour. Beautiful stuff - extremely flavoursome fruity hoppy pale ale - extremely refreshing and one of the best examples of one of the UK's best breweries

Soft and extremely balanced pale ale, citric and refreshing with grains and hops. Very nice but jaipur is better!

mzaar (1522) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
På fat. Dimmigt guldfärgad med medelstort vitt skum. Såväl i smak som doft är det en hel del friska frukter, därtill en touch av karamell och tallbarr. Medelstor beska, medelsötma. Lättdrucken.

chimpgibbon (285) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Pale gold, medium head and good bubbles. Lovely light aroma of hops; little funk, tropical fruit and spice coming through. Foamy mouthfeel. Medium dry end and a touch of sweetness from the malts. Better on the nose than taste. Pretty decent but nowhere near as good as Jaipur.

Bottle from stags head, Sheffield. Bright yellow ale with a persistent white head. Citrus and grassy on the nose. Taste is quite mild, not too bitter but with plenty of PA characteristics. Medium carb and body. Nice.

humlelala (951) - DENMARK - JUN 17, 2014
(on keg @ The Grain Loft) Pours a clear golden with medium, creamy white head that sticks around and leaves beautiful lace. Aroma is nicely hoppy with notes of tropical fruit, peach and gooseberries. Oily texture, light body, soft carbonation and a dry, slightly bitter finish Flavour is hop-driven with the emphasis on aroma notes and only little bitterness. Could be a bit more hoppy as it is close to getting a little watery at times but I understand the desire to give this beer a broader appeal.

GSAP (470) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Passievrucht, bloemen en kiwi in aroma. Smaak gaat iets zoeter door. Weinig koolzuur in licht geel met geen kraag. Fles @ 24 uurs Maastricht.

0,5L bottle, BB 02.12.2014. Pours clear light golden with white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is fruits, citrus, flowers, and malt. Taste is tropical fruits, flowers, passion fruits, grapefruit, and touch of malt. Finish is fruity sweet and grapefruit bitter. Overall: decent brew.
