2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit of a dull colour. Thin head. The aroma has some overripe fruity but also some mellow hop. The palate has lots of hops and is quite bitter.
Bottle. Murky goldenbrown color, fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of bright grapefruit and pineapple, some banana. Taste is earthy grapefruit, very bitter finish. Interesting flavor combo. omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 3, 2013
Pours a nice cloudy golden colour. Grapefruit with citrus undertones comes to the fore on the nose. On the palate a bit too sour for my liking for an IPA. Has a lingering bitterness which is not too overpowering. DylansDad (649) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 24, 2013
Pours a very light yellow, slightly hazy with creamy one finger head. Aroma is green bananas and a bit of butter and honey on toast. Taste is like the aroma. It seems there is some percentage of wheat in the bill, which I’m normally not a fan of, but the bitterness kicks in nicely at the end and cleans everything up nicely. It starts a little creamy but quickly dissipates leaving a slight numbing effect similar to that of juniper berries in Chinese "Ma La" spicy dishes. Overall, I find the flavours are thin enough that they don’t hide the relatively modest ABV. A wheat beer fan may quite like this.
