Had across New Zealand. Most tropical nose I’ve smelled before. Taste follows with passion fruit, pineapple, guava, citrus, kiwi etc. super juicy but with a strong caramel malt backbone. Just a superb IPA, one of my all time favs, a showcase of the Nelson hop. JohnCook101 (535) - - JUL 4, 2016
Hazy amber, fairly large light beige head. Fantastic fruity aroma. Flavours of grass, caramel, gooseberry, tropical fruit, grapefruit, pine. Moderate sweetness backed up by a hefty hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Lovely. crackedmachine (481) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle in Kitsilano. Pours a cloudy light copper with slight, off-white head. Aroma of grapes, kiwi, citrus. Hops dominate flavor, with similarities to aroma - grapes, kiwi, quite bitter. Pretty light bodied, but very flavorful, with a lingering bitter finish and complexity that helps keep it interesting. Sjohnh (925) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Cloudy, rusty orange. Thin white head, leaving a bit of lacing. Body on the thin side. More piney than I expected, and has a lingering bitterness. Dark toffee from the malt. The fruit plays second fiddle somewhat, but the sauvignon blanc flavours are there. Fullpintofbeer (363) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle from Brew Bristol.
Sparse head, gold colour, clear, nice lacing.
Aroma: light citrus covered by milk and strawberries.
Bitter taste, light body long bitter finish, flat.
Quite alright, however the aroma is not very nice.

Bottle. Amber color with white head. Aroma is resinous, piney, lychee, pineapples, some malts. Taste is exotic fruity, more lychee and pineapples, resinous, toasted malts, bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Great! nosajhongkong (77) - North Point, HONG KONG - JUN 6, 2016
On tap at BrewDog Hong Kong.
Apperance: Cloudy, amber to golden colour. Thin white head with slight lacing.
Aroma: Notes of lychee, pine, grapefruit,resin. Full of new-world hops characteristic. Slight yeast smell.
Taste: Medium bitterness and sweetness, with some caramel malt flavour.
Palate: Medium body and medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel with dry, long and crisp finish.
Overall: Zesty and vibrant aroma and taste from the southern hemisphere hops. The roasty caramel malt flavour adds perfect complexity to this beer. ipabr (214) - Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
The smell is so close to the smell I hate in other beers (sierra Nevada lagunitas) but surprisingly I found this enjoyable. Resinous texture goes great with abv. I’d drink this again. CaptainTilven (191) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAY 12, 2016
Dégustée à 10,9°C. Corps de couleur doré orange foncé, couronné d’une mousse peu abondante, fine et qui fond vite; bulles de tailles diverses. Arômes d’agrumes et de miel, qui donnent une amertume enrobée; caramel, mangue, fruit de la passion; rondeur des fruits jaunes mûrs. Équilibre génial entre malt et houblon; belle longueur. À la fois tranchante et gourmande. DeanF (2453) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 7, 2016
Okay white head and orange body. Farty aroma, hay funk, a bit of lemon juice in there. A bit of skunk cabbage in there too, sauerkraut maybe. Flavour is sharp grapefruit with a hint of booze. Dry finish. Not bad, but that aroma is kinda funky.
