What’s in a name. Well if one is expecting an IPA, one should get an IPA. Nice amber colour but with a very small head. Lightly malted and hopped; a hint of peppery herbs. Little bite, little mouthfeel.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cl bottle at home. Pours clear golden with medium white head. Aroma: mainly malts, caramel, raisins and some apricot. Taste: medium sweetness with low bitterness. Only malts in the taste. Palate: medium bodied, somewhat sticky texture and average carbonation. This beer would fit better as a blond beer than an IPA, because of the lack of hops.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and mildly dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, some creamy sweetness but also with a pretty odd grainy tang. Piney hops, trace of spice. Banana esters on the smooth finish. It’s odd for sure but by no means terrible. I just don’t understand why importers are bringing this stuff in when there are far better breweries in NZ.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear dar amber, off-white head. Smells of caramel and lollipops, vague fruity notes and maybe some hops. Or maybe not. Hints of alcohol. The taste is much worse, caramel, lollipops and light malty notes are totally lost in the head of harsh alcohol. The finish is harsh and bitter, but mostly alcoholic rather than hoppy. More like a strong lager.
