500mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB 03/03/2016 Pours an orange gold beer, creamy white head. Hops drive the nose, typically NZ affair - lovely ripe tropical fruits -guavas, paw paws, papayas - leafy herbs, dried herbs, earthy herbs - good measure of caramel malts. Big beer; full creamy, syrupy, resiny, oily, lovely really. Just resiny, sticky, lots of ripe tropicals, tangy citrus, dried herbal hops, doses of caramel - long finish , plenty of bitterness but well balanced. Great beer!

Garrold (5271) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle. Beer Stop, Dronfield. A month off it’s BBD. Very hazy, reddy amber. Swirly, lasting, white head. Rich, thick, stewed hop. Minty toffee. Bit of marzipan. Oily herb. Hint of vanilla. Taste is sticky sweet, turning big, herby, punchy bitter. Very chewy and resinous. Palate is all of that. Soft carbonation. Finishes lip sticking sweet, and long, slightly boozy, chewy, resinous bitter. Massively tasty. Half a world away from fresh, but I loved this.

Bottle 500ml New World NZ 11 bucks down to 9!! Huge tropical banana nose bit of caramel and butter, spose thats toffee! First taste is huge really punchy and bitter . Palate gets used to it about half way thru. Big tangy robust flavours of burnt apple and grapefruit, lots going on , felt the abv before i tasted it kinda thing! palate lacks overall weight as i just think theres way too much going on for this to ever be balanced, finish is really quite bitter but its a beast of a beer and one i need to try again. It has the punch to win but not quite the flair of Epic Hop Zombie or Liberty Citra.
