The head is ok, the body clear and golden. It smells flowery, fruity, hoppy. The taste is flowery, hoppy, creamy, strange-interesting. Ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet sweet syrupy malts and hops on the nose and in the flavour and taste. Hops give me the impression of the syrup of cans of fruit salad have been added to the brew. The beverage seems to mellow after that initial shock of sweetness.
Big bodied this ipa is a slow drinking winter or autumn warmer. Nice bitterness toward the end of the beverage helps the beer from that initial sweet shock.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a dark gold like urine after a night of tequila drinking with almost no head. Aroma of an old smokey hotel room. Smells like ashes, wood, a bit of citrus, and resin. Taste very dry and bitter. Has a skunky taste to it. Ashtray, rotten citrus rinds, and a bit of dirt. Old leaves and rotten citrus rinds. A compost heap. Makes my taste buds want to run away. A bit sour tart sweet and bitter. Making the buds go crazy. Definitely not feeling this IPA!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours cloudy golden with a light orange hue and foamy white head. The aroma brings some light, fruity, New Zealand hops, but vague. I think the beer is a bit dead, but the body is overcarbonated for sure. The flavor has some light unique grassy like New Zealand hops for sure and then dies quickly on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 0,33L Amber reddish charged color, little fraught aspect with a modest head of short resistance. Very fruity hop aroma with notes of cortex. A litte unbalanced mouth with a pleasant hop and grapes taste. Long bitter final.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
different for sure. there’s some earthy, leafy aromas going on- and some genuine soil type characters. malt profile is complex bright and candied with contrasting light savoury tones. hops seem balanced but oldskool alpha kinda which is a slight detriment i think. but very good

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle. Pours a straw yellow color with a huge white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops up front with piney resin following. Taste is sweet citrus, grapefruit, pine, and bready malts. Pretty straight forward IPA, nothing that stood out for me.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2013 330ml bottle in Dunedin. More a malty taste for me than the citrus notes in other IPAs. Very nice, but not as big as I’ve heard about or others on here have found. 8 Wired Hop Wired much better for me all round.
