Mild amber pour with lingering head. Aroma of herb and tropical fruit. Good malt body and sweetness with a long citrusy-tropical fruit finish. Good balance and very enjoyable. nickd717 (4996) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Draft at Brew Craft in Tauranga. Clear golden color with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet pineapple juice, classic New Zealand hop funky B.O. notes. Flavor is quite sweet and sugary, with decent pineapple/tropical/citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied, decently crisp. Above average overall. explosivedog (1813) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 19, 2017
On tap at Brew Rotorua. Pours red gold, some head. Caramel, orange, some pine and lemon in the flavour. Pretty good. beer4eternity (226) - Tauranga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2016
On tap at Brew, Rotorua. Clear gold amber hue with a small white ring and some lacing. Delicious citrus, spruce, tropical fruit aromas with caramel lurking in the background. Mild-moderate sweet, mostly bitter taste. Soft carbonation, mildly oily texture, bitter dry finish. Yum Yum, loved the hop combo much.

From bottle in IPA glass; obviously I had to try this one. It pours fairly clear golden/amber with lively CO2 and a solid one-finger head. Nose is more modest than most IPA’s, citrus hops and a bit of malt. Very smooth drinking and tasty with a mildly bitter finish. It was past its BB date, but still very nice.

From a 500ml bottle on 3/4/2016 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a clear golden with a medium head. Has a pleasant fruity, hoppy nose. The flavour features bready malt, some sweet citrus (mandarine, tangerine), and some relativey firm hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A pretty solid IPA. As I’ve just had a bottle, clearly not draught only any longer. XaenDovet (1281) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Draught at brew craft beer pub in Tauranga. Clear gold. Aroma of tropical fruit juice, citrus, caramel. Taste is sweet, with some citrus tartness, and a touch of hop bitterness. Palate is creamy, sticky, long dry finish. User369532 (909) - - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle. Pale amber color, clear liquid. Strawberry smell, heavy sweet continuing also in finish. Good. bulldogops (2850) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Rating #1363 7.12.2014 355mL Bottle from the 2014 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, piney, lemon zesty and cookie dough malt. Taste is more of the same, dry piney citrusy hops and pastry malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious
