Probably my favourite beer atm. It is a seriously impressive beer. The 3D is gimicky, but very cool. The head is not great visually, but the aroma is superb. Rich fruity smell, very complex palate and a long dry finish. Note, it’s 9%, you don’t want more than two!

Great beer, for those of us for whom hoppiness is next to Godliness. Perfect amount of hops (a lot!), but still retains full flavour, and does not over power the palate, but instead leaves a delicate lingering hoppiness that has you wanting more

650ml Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a tint of gold. Reasonable head, well laced. Aromas of pine and sweet malts with notes of citrus and hints of passion fruit. Initial flavour is smooth caramel with a malty character, and already bitter. Bitterness is very well balanced and it moves into a stronger citrus flavour. Finish is bitter malty, pine flavour, Very warming and smooth, leaves a wonderful malty bitterness in the mouth. Lightly carbonated with an excellent balance between caramel malts and an aggressive hopping. Awesome beer!!

This is a fantastic beer: full bodied, good flavour, nice bitterness and amazing oily mouthfeel. This is an absolute must for hop heads!

Bottle from Slowbeer. Great hoppy beer, never-ending flavour. Aromas of grass, flowers, liquorice. Taste is mostly bitter, long length. Palate is syrupy, full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Full hop blast on the nose when pouring this one. Comes out a clear light copper color. Smells delicious, Big citra-hop aromas. First sip: whoa. Huge hops, big flavors of grapefruit and citrus, but balanced with a bit of malty sweetness. I've had much lower ibu beers that were much more abrasive than this. The bitterness is there, and strong, but somehow not overwhelming.
Overall I'm really impressed with this one. Quite delicious.

Tuatara need to be commended for this beer as it is one of the best I have tried. While aggressively hoppy at 167 IBU (which I would contest) it has a smooth sweetness that carries the beer. A little alcoholic on the finish, but I am nitpicking on a fine specimen of a beer. Extra points given for 3D glasses that accompany the beer.

Expecting something much more bitter at 167. Was not disappointed as this is an extremely delicious drop that was full of flavour but not excessively bitter. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2013 Sweet aroma of figs and brown sugar. Thick pour, light and foamy head. This batch has a strong bitter finish conflicting the sweet aroma. Nice finish, a great beer for anyone who enjoys a solid IPA.
