COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aggressive, tropical NZ hopped aroma gives way to the rich, copper coloured malt base and a huge lingering bitterness to finish. In an ode to its ancestors, we’ve used all English malts in the grist and a bold English bittering hop in the boil.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 Bottle from CBB. L: Pours a brownish amber, with a small beige head and a little lacing. S: strong aromatic hop presence, pine, mango, citrus, and a caramel sweetness. T: delicious. Has a strong malt backbone and a building bitterness, which balances nice with the pine and fruity notes. F: slightly chewy from the malt, a good body and rolls across the palate nicely. Plenty of bitterness for hop heads. O: a strong malt body, not just relying on surface smells and flavours but providing a solid drinking experience.

Pineapple, lychee, mango with a smooth citrus base. A little heavier in the body than a WCIPA, but less sweet, so higher drink ability. A superb beer. Enjoyed this more than the 8 wired Supercharger that followed, which is no slouch.

Had at The Birmingham Hotel in Melbourne, on tap. Not a big fan of IPA but loved it.

From notes. Draft at Dukes in Wellington. Clear deep amber color, medium white head. Aroma of grassy pine. Taste is bitter and resiny pine. Tasty.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and grass, flowing into a broad and complex bitterness that lasts long after the final drop. Slightly cloudy. A strong head robbed it of a little aroma, but overall very enjoyable. Not a heavy hitter, but definitely suitable for a session

GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 14, 2015
Pours a clear amber with persistent white head. Aromas of tropical fruits, but lighter than I would like. Flavour is of fruity hops and yeast esters. Biscuity malts and a clean, crisp, intense bitterness in the finish that lasts forever. The medium light body makes it more than drinkable.

GuideDogSaint (1744) - Xiamen, CHINA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen on 28 March. Pours hazy golden brown with a white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Bitter finish. This was the last one the head and from the shelf rather than the fridge so a bit colder might have done it some good.

heyden (138) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 25, 2015
Floats with a cinderella like panter, flirts with the palate like a midget at a prom . A true doxxxxx of the world. Go hard or go home. Thuglyfffff

Capa (3433) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Nice caramel malt, lightly boozy, full of flavorful rustic bitterness. Finishes dry. Fill it up again, please.
