The head is ok, the body gold-brown and clear. It smells hoparomatic, malty, bit dry. The taste is hoparomatic, quite flowery, flowery-bitter, bit malty, ok

A lovely summer beer. Good rich malty nose with hop resin characters. The palate is a re-affirmation, good bitterness that match the caramel notes on the palate. Floral hoppy, almost sweet finish to make you want another gulp. A solidly awesome beer to finish of a hard days shit shovelling.

Delicious. I’ve drunk this over time, and I swear tonight’s was lighter in colour than I’ve seen it before, palate confirmed this. Still a model of balance, a nice strong fruity forefront, easy to have a second or third.

Yellowish brown with a hint of ash. Easy drinking with a well balanced hoppiness. Bitter and deep in the aroma but yet smooth.

A newer beer in the lineup to take on the hoppier beers that have become more prevalent in recent years, and I think it has been a good addition to the Wigram range. While not overly hoppy (I would dispute the 40-50 IBU) this beer is nice golden colour and is very potable.

I had a low expectation for this beer, but was pleasantly surprised and was very impressed with the highly-citrus aroma. It settled light-amber in the glass with a nice head. The taste wasn’t quite up to the standard of the pleasing aroma, and although it was well presented and citrusy, it lacked a clear hoppy bitterness. This mattered little though as an altogether pleasant beer and very good value for money.

Aroma: citrus, nuts, earthy. Appearance: amber, sparkling, clear, minimal white head. Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitterish. Overall: Whilst this beer is most certainly not the most hoppy or bitter APA i have ever tasted (I didn’t even realise it was an APA until i looked at this site(NZ hops in an APA???)) it is most definitely a very drinkable beer that i would recommend to anyone looking for a hoppy yet easy drinking and tasty beer.
