Tuatara Indian Pale Ale is brewed using the finest New Zealand malt imparting to the beer a full-bodied malt character yet still retaining the light color of the style. Classic English variety hops are used to produce the traditional high bitterness, flavor and aroma enjoyed in this style. This is a strong ale with 5% alcohol.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear golden colour with an off white head. Aroma is stone fruit with a little earthiness. Taste is a little jammy with a pleasant bitterness. Great beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Bottle at Brew, Thonglor, Bangkok. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is resin woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a resin light metallic hop bitter palate. Moderate to light bodied with average carbonation.

A nice and deep golden colour, not much visible carbonation bit a thick (albeit rapidly disappearing), off white head. There’s a pleasant mixture of biscuity malts and stone fruit hop aromas, with a slight hint of pine In the background. To tastes there’s an upfront bitterness supported by a backbone of pine. A feeble dose of malty flavour rounds out the back end of the beer, not overly complex here. Palate is a little light on for my liking, carbonation is a bit weak and it’s just not very moreish. Meh, it’s ok.

AgentAle (830) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Aroma is fairly generic ; Light malt roastiness and some basic hop bitterness. Slight notes of straw and hay. Taste is a fairly bland malt profile with slightly earthy bitterness that comes through and leaves a slight tartiness on finish. Appearance is a clear gold with a frothy thick pearl head that retains fairly well.

maekchu (2356) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Good solid malty nose, thick caramel, tinged with some stinky hops. Pretty copper color, slick, with little head. Malty initial, caramel rising, level off in mid and then mild hopping emerges. Hops really burst out in mid. Finishes with subtle bitter notes. Medium body. Brit style, for sure. Solid IPA.

Rosslew (264) - AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2014
Keeps a frothy head. Has carbonation. Got citrus, grapefruit, but not strong. Carbonation does hit on smell in the glass. Low key finish. Came in 500ml bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
