Figured for my 50th review I wanted to review something epic. Little too hot to have the Black Albert I've been saving so I figured to go with a beer that was quite literally "epic".
A - Nice clear amber with a slight one finger head that leaves practicly no side lacing but nice spiderlacing on the liquid itself.
S - An almost bready taste along with heavy citrus (grapefruit) but not all they piney. It must be the hops but theres quite a strong tobacco smell which is rather shocking and unexpected.
M - Crisp and clean this has medium, almost high carbonation.
D - Very nice, different IPA. Pretty sure this is my first time trying these hops. Such a unique flavor, but as the beer warms it loses a bit of the punch. Really glad I tried this New Zealand brew, but for the $9.99 picetag its definately not an every day pickup.

bottled in may, so freshness was undoubtedly an issue here. light copper to honey colored ipa, frothy white head, and mostly clear. the nose is mostly bitterness in this one, with some resinous hops and a thicker malt body. the flavor must have faded a lot, because i get just a bit of hops, but more just stale grain and bitterness. the whole thing really doesn't have much flavor at all until the finish, which is pine and bitterness all the way, with a very full body. my problem with this, and a lot of beer from new zealand, is that by the time it gets here, its fading, and given that new zealand grows some amazing hops, its a let down in these hop forward brews that we never get them in their prime. this one falls into that category, and is probably so much better at the source. still, not a bad brew and worthy of a try.

On tap at Lumsden Freehouse in Auckland.
Clear medium-light amber body with medium carbonation and a very durable off-white head.
Aroma: hop forward, mostly floral with some herbal
Flavor: hop forward: herbal with a hint of weed. Mildly bitter aftertaste with some lingering herbal and floral notes.
Feel: near medium body; medium-light carbonation. .
O: OK but not worth seeking out.
