Amber poor with a nice head that recedes quickly. Taste is a nice bitter sweet balance. Some great hop flavours, just so different from the usual US hops. Full of hop fruity flavours and in the background a really nice caramel maltyness. Enjoyable ipa. Really like the nelson and motueka hops. crossovert (12631) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Tasted alongside the regular. Just not into it, very herbal, grassy and sweet. tlind2 (1708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013

Amber color, tan head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Juicy hop flavor with caramel. Lingering hop finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Not bad.
Bottle - Sweet tropical fruits, orange and a bit of the candy floss. Cloudy orange and thin white head. Woody, orange and some other fruity flavors I just can’t place. A resinous dry finish. Very pleasant with flavors I am not familiar with. Crit (3973) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013

Pours a clear amber. Grassy fruity aromas. Tastes of Mary Jane and grass, green capsicum, carbonated into Mary Jane infused bitterness, light butter and medium bitter. Outstanding. XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Opaque orange. Aroma of fruit and citrus. So fresh. Taste is the same. Brilliantly dry. I want this to be on me. reebtogi (6235) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some really nice ropey lacing on the glass. Aroma is fresh grapefruit and tropical fruits with some cereal grains. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with some sweetness from the malts and tropical fruits. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Flavors are well balanced. This is an outstanding IPA that I thoroughly enjoyed. Gerbeer (3683) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a yellow/brown with light head. Bright aromas of toffee and green unripened fruit (peaches and apples). Flavor of tobacco, toasted malts, spruce, brown sugar, and light resin. So this is what fresh NZ hops taste like? Much better than the standard HopWired. I’ll have another. DuffMan (10270) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy deep orange body with a thick head that leaves cables of lace down my chalice. aroma is pungent with verdant hop character with an underlying ripe papaya sweetness. The palate delivers oily hops galore, peppery and grassy, with background ripe tropical fruits, papaya and guava and sweet melon. Long bitterness in the finish. Just awesome.
