Pours a beautiful orange amber. Aroma is of gorgeous tropical fruit. Smells like one of those tropical fruit juice boxes but fresher and more delicious. Taste emulates the nose, with relatively sweet tropical fruit leading into a massive dose of refreshingly earthy hops which linger in the mouth long after the beer has been swallowed. Truly an incredibly IPA, possibly the best. This is the beer that turned me on to the wonderful world of craft beer.
Pours a hazy deep amber with a decent off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, malt, hops, slight blueberry, grass, biscuit. Taste is sweet upfront, with a hoppy middle leading to a fairly bitter finish that lingers for a bit. Medium to thin bodied, low carbonation. Pretty good!

Keg six degrees north. Pours clear amber, thin off white head. This is a very subtle and complex beer. Aroma is fruit, more fruit, vermouth, malt. Taste is dry, with again fortified wine notes. Interesting and well made. Not your typical IPA. PabloZab (1699) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle 330ml (BB 25.07.2018). Clear, dark-golden colour. White-yellowish head. Good lacing. There are notes of citrus, resin, tropical fruits and malts on the nose. Malty in taste, medium body balanced of medium, resin bitternes. Light in feeling, smooth, even refreshing, drinkable and full of flavors. Really good IPA with NZ hops, I'm glad to had opportunity to taste this beer. Skarecrow (933) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 18, 2017

Kiwi beer that is delicious. Very very hoppy taste with solid alcoholic content. A little expensive in Bangkok but worth the buy

Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura acuosa. Aroma a pino, resina, malta caramelizada. De entrada casi dulce, con mucho sabor pino, base de malta caramelizada muy presente. Final de amargor resinoso suave pero duradero. Seca. Buen postgusto. Disfrutable pero un poco vista ya. No capto mucha fruta tropical, la verdad.
