UPDATED: AUG 19, 2012 Tap at the Albion Newcastle. Wow this was even better than in a bottle. Fantastic IPA, huge hoppy flavour that is exquisitely balanced. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2012
One of the all time best IPA’s I’ve evre sipped. Pours a beautiful golden color with a lingering frothy head. Smells of bright, crisp and very fresh hop spice. Full nectar with excellent carbonation. Supreme hop essence balanced by a fat malt component. This brew just goes down so good and lingers on the tongue forever. Highest recommendation. aliquid (6) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 24, 2014 does not count
0.5l bottle at the Salt House, Galway, Ireland. Amber Colour, tropical fruits aroma, full body with rich, oily sensation in the mouth. And it is all about those unusual NZ hops, still balanced very well with the malt used. Probably the best beer in the world. :) beerrealmann (2) - - NOV 20, 2014 does not count
this is one beautiful IPA. I tasted it for the first time tonight, and it’s one of the most surprising beers i’ve tasted. surprisingly great. I got notes of mandarin in the palate. but it’s a lovely bright taste while holding a rich fullness of the hops.
I’m definately going to try it again soon beernest (2) - Shanghai, CHINA - DEC 4, 2014 does not count

a beer I have waited 45 years for!! and it was well worth the wait. Well done Soren ceck82 (51) - SPAIN - JAN 30, 2012
Increible Cerveza, a partir del primer momento te da cuenta que es una gram cerveza, color rojo pale con espuma compacta y cremosa, se bebe muy facilmente a pesar el gran cuerpo que tiene, mitigado de la presencia de lupolo, quizas cascade, que le dsa un fuerte olor a frutos tropicales, mas q citrico y amargo como las americanas, es un amargo especiado, como fruta esotica y naranja.

Beer on tap in Mikkeller Bar in Bangkok... Absolutely my style of beer. Great sweet and fresh aroma. And taste is even better! You must try! creative_free (37) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 9, 2010
Bottle second batch: Nose is fruit salad. One of the most appetizing noses I have smelt on a beer, incredible. Taste follows through with fruity flavors and huge hop bitterness but never becoming astringent. My favorite NZ IPA. youngcaptain (7) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2010 does not count
Tried first bottle in August 10 while in NZ but can still remember those hops !!
Big, spicy, orange punch in the nose but not unlike the famous American c hops but with more fruit and zing, bit of cara malt sweetness but not dominating. I could drink a lot of this beer
