Bottle. Now 7% ABV. Don't think it's NZ Cascade these days either. Amber with a puffy white head. Aroma of bread crust, floral and grapefruity hops. Some dried peach, mango. Rich rumbling malt with sticky bread crust; then the floral and slightly herbal hops begin to grip (the citrus is not as prominent) and lead to a firm bitter finish. I suppose this is old fashioned now - from the days before neutral malt IPAs, let alone hazy ones. It's great. TedE (1535) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2017
330ml bottle into shaker. 7%. Copper coloured beer with frothy white head. Medium carbonation. Patchy lacing. Nose is fruity, resiny, earthy. Full-bodied, viscous. Taste and finish are full of peppery bitter hops. Delicious! Easy-drinking too. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2017
(500ml bottle) Pours a clear orange body with a medium head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, orange, and florals. Flavor of orange, caramel, florals, grass, and toffee. User369532 (909) - - JAN 19, 2017
Bottle. Amber color, hazy liquid, white head. Aroma of zest, citrus, malt. Balanced, but heavy beer. Very good. explosivedog (1813) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 30, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2017 330ml bottle. Grapefruit, pine, apricot. Nice malt background but the hop profile comes over a little messy. Not my favourite.

Amber color with OK head.
Aroma is a wonderful mix of pine, grass and grapefruit notes.
Taste is pretty much the same - the bitterness is understated - this beer has a real zest about it and easily one I could sit on all night.
Nice one R.E. nickd717 (4996) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 22, 2016
500ml bottle, BB 29 Mar 2017. Dude at the beer shop told me it was a magical beer. Wouldn’t go that far, but it’s good. Clear copper color with a lacy white head. The aroma is nicely earthy, leafy, and spicy. Some tea notes. The flavor has caramel malts, toffee, herbal tea, balanced bitterness and spice. Medium bodied, lively on the feel. Really nice for an English IPA overall. canadiankiwi (149) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 27, 2016
Quite enjoyable. Beautiful nose, the malt and hops aroma is amazing. Let down a bit in taste. Subtle for The abv. Light hop taste.

Yeah wow, this is an awesome tasting beer with great aroma. Cleverly brewed with a real honest hoppy, spicy taste. Not overly bitter and well balanced on palate. Nice.
Footnote: Goes extra well with Bluff oysters. Yum! mabel (10004) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
