Pacific Northwest meets Pacific Southeast as the best of American and New Zealand hops meld together with just enough malt backbone to allow them to sing. A riot of mango and passion-fruit on the nose but balanced enough to drink by the bucketful. Dive in and grab another bottle but don’t get the bends.

Shows very dark amber with practically no filtering and sparse white foam. The nose shows moderate notes of lemon and hints of cannabis with slight notes of sweet malts. The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated. Moderate to high intense notes of the lemon and tropical hops showing through with a very hemp -like bitterness at the end. The IPA bitterness only shows hints here. Over all fun to drink.

Pours orange with a HUGE white head. Aroma is orange, lime, lemon and something slightly off I can’t nail. Taste is citrus, pine and a very sharp bitter finish.

Bottle from Beer52. Orangey and opaque with a nice fluffy head. Peach and citrus in the aroma. Nice grapefruit aroma. Dry, great body, quite bitter. Decent pale ale, well rounded.

TimE (4959) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 3, 2015
Light golden color. Lovely tropical fruit, with mangoes and pineapples. Mouth smooth low-medium bitterness. Dry with low bitterness in the finish but mangoes just linger. Really fantastic use of NZ hops.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
330ml bottle, pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is a full on tropical fruit hit, mango, guava, lychee. Lengthy hop bite over light malts and a balanced light bitter finish. Soft carbonation.

Brew_Cat (118) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle at home, from www.beer-shop.gr. Creamy white head, medium body, leaves good lacing. Excellent variety of aromas, exotic fruits like mango and pineapple, bread, grass, straw malts, a hint of fresh butter (!), leaves notes of sweetness and sourness on the nose. Herbal, orange, citrus hops.Slightly dry finish with long-lasting bittersweet aftertaste. Great!

DrGD (109) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. Appearance: nice orange colour with white foam. Aroma: very fruity and fresh, lots of tropical fruits and hops. Taste: mainly hops, malty and fruity notes. The intense hoppy bitterness overpowers the rest. A well crafted, very enjoyable hop bomb!

Golden pale ale with white head... strong mango on the nose, tastes bitter, fruity, quite light bodied making for a very refreshing, well balanced beer. Good stuff.
