Purchased from the Fine Wine Delivery co. in a 650ml bottle. I’m buying more American beers as a compliment to the solid NZ beers that I normally buy, but unfortunately thats as far as my compliments can go, upon further inspection this beer was imported from the supplier in December of 2013 and I can’t help but feel that this has had a negative impact on the aroma and slightly unpleasant stale after taste. Nevertheless still acceptable in the last of the NZ summer sun with good company. terefere (396) - Durham, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours golden, sparkling, frothy head. Complex aroma of flowers, mango, grapefruit, hint of bread and honey. Taste: roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, nuts, grapefruit zest, tropical fruits. madvike (3264) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle - Gusher. Once it settles down, pours clear copper with a foamy light tan head. Nose is sweet caramel, a bit of bourbon twang, and some heavy bread malt. Taste is the same. Super sweet and caramelly, with spicy bread malt, nuttiness, and a little herbal hopping. Thick and slick with ample carbonation. Very little hopping to speak of. No bottle date on the neck where apparently it’s supposed to be. Man, West Coast IPAs turn into absolute shit when they’re (probably old), I’ve had my fair share of bombs, though there’s no way to tell the age on this one.

TAP. Cloudy orange pour with thick white head. Citrus hops on the nose. Heavy malts up front flowing into a sticky toffee, ending with a hoppy bitter back end.

Bottle. So much foam that it ran out of the bottle when opened and poured very tall head in a mug. Cloudy light amber color. Taste is light, a little fruity, with clean hops. Not as much hops as many IPAs, which is refreshing if you’re not a huge fan of IPAs. Excellent and approachable brew. Christpuncher (3135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2015
a very nice, crisp, hoppy ipa. slightly piney and not much citrus in this one. smells hoppy and boozy. poured from a bottle at home. pours cloudy orange in color with a tan head. rollinsr (748) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JAN 8, 2015
Pours gold with an orange haze and frothy off-white head. Aroma is pungent and sticky with sweet floral citrus resin character. Flavor is light and sweet with a more floral profile that is both tangy and fluffy. stevoj (5045) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 29, 2014
An IPA that’s a bit on the lighter side, in color, body and happiness. Resinous hop aroma and taste, a bit of metallic taste at the finish. Some light citrus notes also. Not bad, but surprised to see it 96. slsenior (62) - - DEC 21, 2014
Probably a good overall IPA but too sweet for me. Not very hoppy but nice to support the surfing brewmasters.
