3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Cloudy orange-amber color, with medium head. Very nice aroma of fruity hops initially, with malt grains and other cereals, and even some honey later. Dry mouthfeel; the flavor is dominated by the cereals, of good quality, and some toffee; strong hopping, that provides some soft resins and not much fruitiness; the final is long.
Quite good indeed.

Had on tap - guessing this is what I had. Bubbly head. Fruity (curranty, slightly earthy) aroma and amber colour. Soft body, lots of bitterness, rich citrusy hop character with light caramelly malts.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big bottle. Light copper with decent porous head. Bit of a weird hop nose has a bit of A Citraness to it. Flavour is light with a big long aftertaste. Delicate candy hop flavour and light malt with some nice lingering pepperiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours a pale golden amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some excellent lacing on the glass. Aroma is big on the citrus and passionfruit. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a bold grapefruit hop bitterness that lingers on the palate but is quite pleasant. This is a bold and flavorful APA with a slight twist that is truly delightful on the palate and highly recommended.

Bottle at Kinloch. Pours a hazy light amber with a small off-white head. Sweet with some dryness. Lots of hops aromas; mostly exotic fruits and hints of citrus. Tiny hints of resin. Full bodied. Medium to high carbonation. Aotearoa Pale Ale... My new favourite style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber with a puffy off-white head. Aroma of lychees, gooseberries, grapefruit, passionfruit flowers. Taste has caramel and light biscuit, very NZ tropical fruits leading to a grapefruity bitter finish. Sometimes these Kiwi hops can be a bit overbearing, but - whilst hoppy - this is very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Deep amber pour with a dense white head leaving superb lacing. Very floral nose overlapped with earthy tones and pine hops. A little thin in the mouth but a nice bitterness follows. Unfortunately not as good as the previous APA but well made nonetheless
