COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hāpi, the Maori word for hop, inspires this truly Pacific pale ale. Brewed with New Zealand barley and the best of the Kiwi hop harvest, Motueka, Wai-iti, Riwaka and Nelson Sauvin. Assertively Hoppy - exceptionally drinkable. Sessionble in strength, bright golden in colour and loaded with generous quantities of aromatic New Zealand hops. Very friendly indeed.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - OCT 14, 2012
Tasted on tap from Cassel’s in Christchurch. Slightly hazy golden yellow with a white head that sunk into a film on top of the body. Smells quite strongly of passionfruit and grapefruit with some light malts coming through. In the mouth it is prickly and gives flavours of tropical fruits followed closely by a blast of hoppy bitterness. More guava, grape and lychee make themselves known in a finish that is long and likeable.

4.6%ABV. IPA. Poured out golden amber. 12 SRM. Nose has fresh pine and grapefruit peel. Mouthfeel is light soapy. Palate has wheat toast solidity. Hop flavors are spicy with pepper leaf and cilantro near the middle and back. There is grapefruit peel and citrus oil on the front. Hint of old socks throughout the palate. Finish is medium and grapefruit peel bitter.

From can at Sasquatch Bar. Pours cloudy amber with white frothy head that laced nicely. Fruity hop and ale yeast aroma with modest bitter finish. Refreshing

Dredd (969) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2017
A bit milder than the average Project beer. Slightly dusty aroma with some lemon and grapefruit. Initial impression is it is a bit thin with some almost grainy malt. Finish is solid hops with a slightly harsh twang.

colui72 (1083) - HONG KONG - APR 28, 2017
Hazy golden to amber, medium white head, some lacing. Aroma is mango and passion fruit. Medium body with nice carbonation, taste is strong on hops (lots of mango and passion fruit, citrus, resin) on top of a good malty backbone, with caramel and bread. Medium bitter, the fruitiness is lingering and gets tart notes. Very nice APA.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2017 En trevlig apa som väl passar in i smakidealet. Inte exceptionell, utan snarare bara gott hantverk.

Muggus69 (2659) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2017
330mL can. BB 08/12/16 Hazy pale gold body, fluffy white foam. Grainy, toast malts, spicy herbal & tropical fruit hop on nose; subtle nose. Medium body, nice creamy sort of texture. Opens out a bit more on the palate - nice cereal, toasted bread crust sort of malt going on, spicy grassy hops take a slight backseat but good balance. Past its best but an enjoyable brew.

Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 4, 2017
On draught. The beer is golden. Tastes crisp and grasslike. A bit of fresh pineapple but with the crispest finish of any pale ale i have had in a while.

Geoff55 (15) - Portland, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2016
Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a large off white head . Unfortunately the large head disappears quickly in the heat of the day. Only light carbonation here , but that’s ok Slightly floral when 1st poured cold but A touch of grass and dried apricots on the nose develops On the palette, an initial touch of peach with even a hint of raspberry/ blackberry which is followed up with pine and grapefruit as the glass developed. Another top beer from the Garage crew
