[8409-20160530] Tap. Fragrant floral toffee aroma. Clear, orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head and some lacing. Bitter gravelly citrus bread and toasted bitter grains flavour. Medium body. Good, odd at first. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

jercraigs (10019) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
2016-05-30. Crisp dark yellow body small beige head and lace. 3+ Aroma of green veg and mushy peas. Flavour is very green with a lot of vegetation, green leafy hops and mushy peas. Average to light bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Very much not to my tastes. 5/3/5/3/10 On tap at Fork and Brewer, Wellington, NZ.

Druid (101) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2014
A nice floral aroma with great bitterness that lasts on the palate. Nice long lasting bitterness.

beer-yum (1415) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2016 Tropical aroma in an amber pour. Hop forward balance with a smooth restrained finish. An excellent complementary brew to their similarly tasty Base Isolator.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 13, 2014
Clear amber with an off-white head. Angry hop aromas - spices, resin, gum and spruce needles. Desserty malt evident as well. The flavours are an almost carbon copy of the aroma - all APA and angry. Tasty stuff and well within style. We’re lucky to have such a plethora of beautifully done beers in this country.

chinchill (4440) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
On tap at the F&B in late Dec. 2013. Grassy, fruity, weedy, herbal with the NZ (hop) twist on this American style showing. Appropriately hoppy with a well set level of balancing malts and only mildly bitter, even in the lingering, hoppy aftertaste. Just a hint of dank and sour from, I think, the NZ hops. Feel: medium body and carbonation.
