Bottle from hop hideout, sheffield. Clear yellow with small white head. Aroma is grapefruit and lychee. Taste is tangy and bitter. Oily full body and mild carbonation. Good.

Bottle pour at home split thanks Andrew for sharing. Golden pour, tones of hops in this beer, smooth with a nice bite.

22 Oz bottle poured. Thanks Dad! Pours a mostly clear golden color with a lasting head. Very very hoppy aroma and flavor. Ive decided I love New Zealand hops and beers. Hop front with a nice mix of tropical fruit. Lingering, hoppy, fruity flavor. Solid IPA. Very nicely done.

Mjp12 (1552) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Slightly disappointed with this, a sweet fruit and malty aroma, with quite a biscuity taste, that has a hop finish, but not especially bitter. A good DIPA, but I was expecting better.

GlassBrass440 (315) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 6, 2015
Great beer. nuf said. Assertive hop aroma and flavor. A blend of American dank and New Zealand tropical fruit that melds perfectly. Flavor brings a slight malt balance. Outstanding beer thats greater than the sum of its parts.

500ml bottle pours a yellow amber color without much head. Tropical and piney hop flavors. Low carbonation.

Martin243 (1063) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
500ml bottle from Glug in the Grainger Market Newcastle served cold at home in a Hoegaarden tulip shaped snifter. Slightly hazed golden body with a white head that dissipates to a skim. Demerara sugar and tropical fruit in the aroma. Sweet tropical guava and pineapple flavour, with a hint of butterscotch in the background.. Medium bodied, slick mouth feel. The intensely bitter finish sets this one apart. As bitter as any beer Ive ever had. Pungently puckering.

tombutlin (258) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 3, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2016 Strong hop aroma and a meaty taste to back it up. floral, citrus, herbs, resin, licorice. Well balanced. Not as exceptional the 2nd time around, but this was the 7th beer tasted this evening, so I need to try this yet again with a clear palate. Oh the inhumanity

500ml bottle. Finally got my hand on this one, probably my most wanted Kiwi beer - and it lives up to its reputation. Pours amber with a medium head. Intense grassy nose. Well crafted taste of citric fruity bitter hops, balanced with a strong sweet malty backbone that provides a long finish, leaving you asking for more. A prototype for great DIPAs.

Foffern (1713) - Bod, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle at home. The colour is clear, pale orange colour with an off-white head. Lots of hops in the aroma with pine, spices, citrus, grassy hops and grapefruit. The flavour is more dry with grapefruit, pine and grassy hops in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, and a balanced bitterness. A nice and complex DIPA.
