On tap at Dodson Street Beer Garden Blenheim NZ. I asked for the hoppiest beer and this is what I got. Nice amber hue shimmering in the sunshine at golden hour in the beer garden, small rapidly fading head, delicious stone fruit lemon-tropical hop aromas, sweet fruity taste with a nice bitter kick, moderately full bodied, lightly carbonated. Would have this one again.

rated from notes: Pours cloudy gold from tap with small head. Malt taste with a bit of a hop to finish

Bottle. Golden color, hazy liquid, no head. Taste like other NZ style IPAs, but this one is a bit lighter.

Quite like this drop. Nice aroma on the nose, citrus and biscuit. An above average APA, smooth to drink and delivers on the hops and mouthfeel. A noticeably bitter after taste, but very acceptable. A nice taste, sufficient approval for me to buy again. Cheers to Roy at Rolleston New World for suggesting this brew to try. Very tasty.

poured golden brown & frothy from a 500ml bottle this smells & tastes really good bitter as with a fine blend of citrus hops & toffee malt with the alcohol warm & subtle in the background

By all the other comments in here Im thinking maybe I just got a bad keg. Because the beer was just flat out not good. Pun intended, because it was pretty flat. It didnt taste like an IPA at all. It went down poorly and left a sour taste in my mouth. Not hoppy. No real flavor other than uck. Would not order again!

Draft. Lovely amber colour with dense head leaving medium good lacing. Lemon-tropical aroma, sweet fruity flavour with a good American hop kick at the end. Very good.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2014
The head is good, the body brown-red. It smells hop-aromatic, bitter, fruity, nice. The taste is hopintensive, different fruity-hoppy, bit bitter, creamy, less malty and less alcoholic. 3.6

beer-yum (1482) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 An excellent example of the antipodean take on the style (American strong ale). The aroma is alluring and backed up by the full bodied hop forward flavour.
