Bottle. Great label. Great beer. Big aroma right away. Big fluffy head. Taste is hops & malt, with the hops winning the battle. I find the palate much better than Epic pale, more full bodied. Great addition to the Tuatara range.

BOTTLE. Pours a clean copper colour with huge foamy white head. Subtle sweet fruit hops on the nose. Sweet hops up front with a minimal resin hop finish.... not "hop head heaven" but still nice.

Clear, slightly fizzy golden beer with a thick frothy head. Dry grapefruit aroma. Flavour is similar but with a touch of fruity sweetness to lend it some balance. Could go being colder than I had it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a medium beige creamy somewhat lasting head that leaves some lacing, Aroma of citrus, hay, and rich malt. Lightly bitter and lightly sweet taste, rich flavors of malt and caramel, average carbonation, light to medium body, thin feel and a light malty finish. Thin body is out of balance with the rich malt. Not bad though.
