Tap at the Junkyard. Pours hazy amber body bubbly thin lace top. Aroma is more malt than hop but the fruit flavours from the NZ hops come through on the tongue. Taste is medium sweet to sour. Palate is medium to light body oily texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. It's not an IPA but given the provenance of the hops why is an American pale? Good though.

⅓ pint taster glass at Tiny Rebel Brewfest, Cardiff. Pine notes , deep wood flavour, surprisingly refreshing. Can't find any other entries that match "Arbor New Zealand IPA". will retract / edit post if incorrect.

Parmenion777 (364) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Bottle – A cloudy orange amber colour with a large lasting frothy off white head. A sweet fruity aroma stewed quince, tropical fruits notes, light malts, and some citrusy grassy hops. Moderately sweet taste, again a predominance of fruit flavours, tropical and citrus, but also some light caramel malt and a resin hop bitterness in the finish. A good mouth feel, medium bodies and overall quite a nice beer.

Davros IX (534) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Bottle at home. A definite nose of tropical fruit which continued into the beer. It was difficult for me to pin down any particular flavours, but definite tropical fruit. Slightly cloudy, a good mouth feel and overall very pleasant. It’s not going to set my world on fire, but very good.

Keg, half pint shared with Finn at Commercial Rooms (JDW). Bubbly white head, laces well, hazy orange body. Orange and bread on the nose. Blended taste character of sappy oranges and toffee. Mid-dry fruity ending. Fine bodied. Refreshing. (Bristol 30.04.2017).
