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. 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.

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 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. k0mpsa (2925) - Tuusula, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2015

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.

hazy golden with a fine head. nice aroma of citrus, pine, peach and grass. very well-balanced taste with a great finish. 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.
