A nice golden amber poor with a slight red hue. Aroma of pure hops slightly bitter but as I progressed through the glass sweet caramel notes appeared.
A well balanced beer with fragrant hops and caramel malts with a nice sharp bitterness.
Great beer from Dunedin will be looking them up next trip home.

First time I had this was on draught and Iím sure the lines were dirty, on second tasting from bottle it was much better good hop note with malt character apparent. Easy drinking pale ale

pours a nice dark copper with a minimal head and an aroma of darker malt, ash,resin. A decent taste to this beer a little citrus there with a dark toffee flavour also and light bitterness.

Dark orange colored with little yellow head. Toffee, grassy, buttery aroma, some burnt rubber note here as well. Hops are bitter and little bit of perfumy. Medium bodied. Flavor is also little bit of burnt rubber with fruits and perfume. Well, not sure if this is clean or not.

Not a big tasting IPA more of a pale ale. Not a big hop flavour but well balanced and a very nice beer.

A few years ago, when I was first starting to explore craft ales, I tried this and went "whereís the hops?" Today, on impulse, I filled a rigger at Regional, and Iím glad I did. So balanced, so full, the citrus notes of the hops not overpowering the lovely toffee notes warm malty notes. And so full in the mouth. A lovely rounded IPA - but, perhaps, for the hop heads out there just think of it as a pale ale and youíll probably be in a better frame of mind when this hits the mouth. Mmmmm.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a hazy orange with a medium off white head. Aromas off citrus, toffee, pine. Nose fairly mulled for an ipa. Taste is of citrus, toffee. Has decent hop but i think this beer is all about how balanced it is. Slick on the palate which wasnt the best. A good job be emersons but ipaís should have more kick to them unlike this one

From a 500ml bottle on 6/12/2010. Has a strong and pleasant aroma of caramel and fruit, floral and piney hops. In the mouth you get caramel, toffee, citrus fruit (oranges) and a touch of grapefruit. Has a solid hop kick, though itís only medium in comparison to heavy hitting IPAs. But this one is all about balance and drinkability. Excellent.
