Pours hazy apricot low white head
Aromas of peach, mango, caramel, resin
Taste has nice notes of hoppy tropical fruits, caramel, resin Vells (1894) - Rīga, LATVIA - FEB 1, 2015
Awesome IPA! Nose starts quite caramely with intense hints of fruitiness, grapefruit, lemon, peach, passion fruit. Same goes in taste - decent sweet malty background with expressive amount of hops.
Starts sweet, but bitterness is overtaking step by step making nice bittersweet harmony.

500ml bottle. the orange colour is very attractive，with creamy foam. Taste very fresh with strong tropical fruit aroma.Great IPA. SinH4 (6124) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 Massive amount of stable foam. Nice orange color. Looks great! Mango-grapey aroma, reminds me of some other Sauvin beers I’ve tried. Taste is sweet-fruity, red berries, tropical fruits at the beginning, caramely, then a great bitterness towards the finish. Superb New Zealand IPA, and a nice beer for my 175th rating :)

September 5, 2014 - on draught at BrewDog (Camden). Five Pounds the half? Okay, sure. Refractive clear copper-amber with lasting thick mottled beige head. Aroma of alcohol, gluteny stickiness and light but pervasive resin bitterness - a little toasted grain too. Taste - yeah, hoppy, malty - straddles the barleywine/strong IPA boundary - plenty of floral bitterness too - quick good. Thick, decent carbonation, starts pretty massively malty and finishes reasonably bitter, some alcohol drying too, some grapefruit pith in the linger - pretty damned solid beer.
