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%

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 Pours unfiltered orange with suspended yeast and hop particles, whispy white head. Very lemony nelson sauvin in the nose, light musky english yeast funk, medium esters. Taste follows and is driven by nelson s pungancy, lots of citrusy tropical hop shit all around. Ok in all but i wouldve rather just had a hooky gold or something

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

mzaar (1508) - 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 (277) - 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 (948) - 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.

Draft at Cannibal. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity hops, faint tropical notes, a clean malt profile, moderate bitterness throughout, and a nice hoppy finish. Fresh and drinkable. Good stuff.
