skortila (5735) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014
Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has mainly citric fruitiness. Clear, golden-copper coloured beer with a white head. The taste has a good, firm bitterness, is slightly veggie, has a lot citrus, some maltiness. Medium bodied. Very nice.

For some reason I just did not like this beer as much as I should. Dry bitterness, found the bead to be a little coarse.

Brodies_Best (269) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 14, 2012
500 ml bottle, pours golden with frothy tan head. Aroma is very raw of malt, oatmeal, floral hops and cherries. Taste is full bodied of malt, oatmeal, floral hops. Very bitter and dry with an almost razorblade acidity that cuts the roof of the mouth and edges of the tongue.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Bouteille de 500 ml. Armes de houblon amricain (pamplemousse et agrumes) et de malt toast et caramlis. Robe orange et lgrement trouble, belle petite mousse qui tient bien et effervescence assez active. En bouche, le malt est trs prsent et montre un caractre particulirement caramlis (crystal) et toast. Le houblon apporte un caractre aromatique honnte, sans toutefois prendre le dessus sur le malt. Finale lgrement sucre et moyennement amre. Pas mauvais, mais je prfre les IPA moins caramlises.

Beautiful amber colour. Absolutely gorgeous. Aroma and taste remind me a lot of my favorite beer Hopwired by 8 Wired however it is less tropical fruit and more citrus. Also it seems to have more hops, or at least more bitterness to the hops.

Nice strength to this beer which, when mixed with the hoppiness gives it a good balance. Nice refreshing flavour for warm evenings with a crispness that keeps me coming back for more.

hawthorne00 (3857) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle, 6.4% ABV, 11C. Amber with a large slightly puffy beige head thats a good coat right at the bottom of the glass. A few small floating bits probably down to careless pour. Aroma of kumquats, caramel, pine. Taste has firm biscuity malt and a little caramel, kumquat and grapefruit, then plenty of bitterness. Not quite dry finish with citrus and some pine. Nothing particularly new in this - just very solid.

Hop and caramel malts are balanced nicely both on nose and tounge. Slightly hazy amber gold colour, which is nice. A real good one. Gotta try it!

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle. A beautiful copper colour with a large head. Itd be taking the crown at the Miss IPA pageant. The malt is very biscuity, but the palate is dominated by those sticky hops. Marmaladey finish.
