3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
