Cconners (11) - Tauranga, - FEB 29, 2008
Last one from my 4 pack,but not my last one from this brewery. This bottle poured an attractive amber colour with slighly more carbonation than the other in the range, an off white head . The beer smells of citrus and grapefruit which I am told is a characteristic of the american hop that was used. The taste is well balanced and interesting more delicate than the others, very drinkable. The finish is very resiny and lingering with a citrus taste which is slightly bitter and refreshing. A great beer for a hot day.

Pours quite a large amount of foamy off-white head that stays a long time and has a golden appearance with light amber hues. Fairly excessive carbonation. Resin hop aromas with bitter earthy hop notes. Flavours are very malty with a dash of honey in the mix. Earthy and floral hops as well as spices. Makes for a somewhat odd mixture. Full bodied, lively carbonation. Has a slick drying sensation. Not bad but something just seems a little off. Can’t pinpoint it.

330ml bottle. Pours gold brown. Mango, pepper, red grapes, pine, little caramel. Interesting, but not all that nice.

Skarecrow (941) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 7, 2017
330ml bottle Hazy amber with OK head. Some pine resin in the aroma with biscuit base. Medium bitterness with biscuit malt base and a resinous tang at the back. Not bad.

Nonshaugen (662) - Fetsund, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2016
33 cl, bottle conditioned, BB March 2017. Some chill-haze, otherwise clear golden amber, medium beige head, lively carbonation. Aroma is malty with ageing tropical fruit hop notes. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium and oily, nice carbonation. Flavourwise I’m not sure. It reminds me of some others IPAs I’ve had, with too long shelf life behind it. It lacks the freshness expected in an IPA, this one is possibly 9 months old by now. Mehh...

Beer5000 (6736) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2016
330 ml bottle. Almost clear golden body with a medium sized, nice off-white head. Very nice and refreshing aroma with fruity hops and smooth malt. Flavor is smooth malt, citric fruit, some citric zest and medium bitterness. Medium body and average aftertaste. Very fresh and nice aroma, more average otherwise.
