3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Barmuda in Queenstown. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a medium white head. Yet another solid pale ale in New Zealand- they’ve impressed me to no end with the APA and IPA styles. Aroma of floral hops, grapefruit citrus, and honey. The flavor is also hoppy and citrusy, with sweetness from the honey and some yeast for a nice balance. Bitter, crisp from active carbonation, and a nice bite.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 On tap. Pours a biscuity orange gold with a thin white head. Aroma: caramel, malt, mild pine and citrus notes. Taste: biscuity malt, caramel, citrus, mild pine and earthy flavours. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness that lingers on the palate. This beer is well balanced and quite enjoyable. It is not amazing, and is not unique or overly interesting but it is still quite tasty and a good session beer. This is also a great entry level beer for those new to craft pale ales. p0urmeac0ld0ne (407) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - SEP 7, 2017
Very refreshing IPA with a warming hop aftertaste. No-nonsense, and somewhat legendary, in certain circles. explosivedog (1808) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 7, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours orange. Mango, pineapple, caramel, little biscuit. Light bitterness, light hop notes, light malt base. A product of its environment perhaps, as it is very easy to drink in intense heat, but it's pretty boring.

330ml bottle from M&S, Watford. Surprised I've never rated this! It's got a slight sourness to the aroma, quite yeasty too. Dry hop bitterness in the flavour. Bready malt at the end. radassace (424) - SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2017
