Skarecrow (697) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 8, 2017
500ml bottle Hazy amber color with good head. Bready aroma with slight fruit notes. Medium bitterness with mandarin and orange notes. Nice enough but nothing overly startling.

3.3
Bygers (1182) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle 0,5l. Pours an almost amber colour with lively off white head. Aroma has quite a lot of banana up front, with malt, yeast and some caramel. Taste is much the same, toffee, caramel, bready malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 9, 2015
From bottle poured hazy gold with a mild aroma of citrus hops taste not dissimilar way more mild than expected plenty of citrus sweet sour floral flavours without being overly hoppy more sweet than bitter

3.4
GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 1, 2015
Pours a hazy light amber with shy white head. Biscuity aroma complemented by an earthy English hop character. Flavours are herbal and spicy with a dry cracker malt backbone. Assertive but not overpowering bitterness lingers in the finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

JMStringer (19) - NEW ZEALAND - JUL 22, 2014
Backlog. At Regional tasting. NZ made IPA with an English malt twist. Very drinkable and interesting, as always from this Brewery.

jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours an almost amber colour with lively off white head. Nose has quite a lot of banana up front, with malt, yeast and some caramel. Taste is much the same, toffee, caramel, bready malt. Only a slight hop presence. Certainly not my kind of ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.9
DylansDad (639) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 22, 2013
Very yeasty, bready on the nose, thin mouthfeel almost like they’ve started to make a pilsner then changed their mind and tried an IPA, in fact, if I blind tasted this, I’d guess an "artistic" representation of a pilsner. Palate is too thin to carry the malt or hops. In the end it satisfies neither as a pilsner, nor an IPA, but it is a nice enough, drinkable ale.
