3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tastes alcoholic but less so than it is, hops are the main flavour with underlying malt. No good for driving home. Good if dig the beer herbs.
Hazy orange pour with OK sudsy head.
Malty aroma with peach, orange and nectarine notes.
Medium bitterness which carries through from start to finish.
Along notes of honey & buttery malt.
Not bad. tombutlin (370) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 27, 2017
In a night spoilt by big, boisterous IPAs, the Stuntman held his own, but did not dominate. Will have to try again in less testosterone- or hop-filled circumstances Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2016
A good hoppy smooth sweet taste. Nothing to write home about but very enjoyable drinking. explosivedog (1813) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2016
On tap at Brother’s Beer. Pours hazy with a mild aroma of pine. Flavour is big pine, funk and grass. Decent. beer-yum (1950) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 9, 2016
Pleasant pine aroma in a golden pour. Big hop forward balance with a tasty fruit body and big sustained bitter finish. A nice clean example of the style - but maybe a little one dimensional compared to other local examples (eg. Liberty Citra).

[8209-20160509] Tap. Fruity candy store aroma is slightly musty, reminds me of a Bulk Barn dried fruit section. Fruity toasted citrus malt flavour has a grainy base. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

2016-05-09. Crisp dark yellow body with a small creamy beige head. 3+ Aroma is relatively alcoholic, burying the pleasant lemon and citrus hops to a certain extant. Flavour is hoppy, moderate fruit up front gives way to stronger bitterness that follows. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. 3+ Okay, the hops don’t quite stand up to the alcohol enough for my liking. 7/3/7/3/13-14 On tap at Hallertau Brewbar, Auckland, NZ.

On tap at brewery. Golden to amber color, hazy liquid, white quickly fading head. Quite sweet, medium bitter. Boring. beerladadrian (24) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 23, 2015
Tried on tap at Fine Wine Delivery Co. Quite a lively beer with some inviting citrus passion fruit flavours, balanced with pine needles and resin. Not over powering for a 8.5% beer, rather easy drinking leaving a pleasant tingle on the side of the tongue. skortila (6009) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottled @ our hotel, Auckland. Very last beer before leaving. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has tropical fruits, citrus. Clear, copper with a white head. (My notes have a ’?’ after the appearance, so unsure). The taste is nice and full. Has citrus mainly, some maltiness. Quite some bitterness. Very nice.
