Spruce and citrus hops to keep a hop head happy, but not too much to scare off my novice drinking buddy. Rich red colour and a body that looks good in its underwear

BB 21/10/2015. Poured a clear dark amber colour with 5mm of off-white bubbles for a head that diminished to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma softly of semi-sweet fruit. Taste with a very tart bitterness; a bit rough. Light body. Crisp, rough and slightly dry with a lingering tart bitterness on the finish.

From Bottle. Poured with beautiful colour and head. Too much aroma for my liking and not enough balance. Enjoyed it less with each sip

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2015 TST East waterfront. Bottle from Craftissimo. Crisp and bitter but quite a bit more malty than I remembered. Body is crisp, lightly tart, dry.
Tasted again on Matt's 31st birthday weekend, side by side with the Aotearoa APA. Lots of fragrant maple syrup crisp malt. Fragrant malt + piney bitterness. More malty and piney than the Aotearoa APA, less fruity and darker in colour. Very good.
