5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is my favourite mass produced beer from my home country, New Zealand, which is why I’m giving it full marks though most of people are a little right in saying that it is not the finest beer in the world.
Great for the sun, not too hoppy, rather amber in colour, smells pretty damn good, tastes the same and the marketing is the best I’ve ever seen, ever!

To call this an IPA is truly laughable. There is no taste, no aroma, no body, it’s truly one of the most awful beers I’ve ever had. Even the tui on the label is looking away.

Bleh. Not worth it. Not enjoyable in one single way. Where are the hops, the flavours. Stop supporting bad beer...

Keg - Clear amber with a fading, frothy white to off-white head. Mid-fruits, some grain and sweet caramel malt. Light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation with a soft intensity and short length finish of grassy hops/toasty malts and grain.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark amber colour, Malty nose. The beer starts watery, a bit malty-sweet. The mainpart is also very watery, malty-sweet, easy to drink. The aftertaste is flat, watery, slightly malty-sweet and kind of boring...

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a copper color with very little head. The smell is caramel malt, cherry. The taste is as it smells, quite sweet with really no hop flavor at all. The body is light yet oily with less than average carbonation. Certainly a stinker for the style.

Bottle - pours amber with a big white head. Aroma is a bit cardboard with some sweet malt. Not a great deal of flavour, some dryness in the finish. Mouthfeel is very thin.

Bottle from The Beer House, Paddington Station, London. Pours a clear amber colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with molasses, biscuit, caramel and hoppy notes. Quite heavy sweetness to taste, and fizzy carbonation. Sticky texture.

Looks like a iPa but that’s about it. Tastes like dishwater. It’s more like a cross between Coors lite and Budweiser, very watery with poor lacing. The packaging fooled me into thinking its craft brewing but its mainstream muck.. Don’t bother..
