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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Rich amber with faint haziness and a rocky head (something rare to find in NZ). Fruit gum and candy apple and sweet caramel malt flavor, similar aroma but faint. Medium body, bit starchy and rough texture, carbonation also a tad fizzy and brash. Malt seems over-killed and burnt and the huskiness is off-putting. Growing notes of laundry soap as it opens... Medium to high bitterness with strong sweetness. Harsh hop acid prick the mouth and linger in the finish with a mish-mash of fruit cocktail, resin and gum. It’s hoppy, sweet and bitter and seems aimless and carelessly put together. Very basic.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. My notes are sparse on this one, but I thought I was fresh and full of complex hoppy aromatics, tropical fruit and pine. Very satisfying.
