4.45/5 rDev +10.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A - Cloudy, orange/amber in colour. Just a thin white head (maybe the pour was a touch gentle), rings of lacing but short-lived ones only. A wispy cloud inhabits the surface of the beer to the end.
S - Wow that's fruity. Intense tropical fruit salad aroma of passionfruit, orange, mango, lime. Distinctive NZ hop aroma. Gorgeous. Sweet white wine and sorbet also.
T - Follows the nose with all that fruity loveliness. Very hop forward, full flavours yet for a double/imperial IPA - extremely low on bitterness.
M - Slick, moderate body. Medium carbonation. Tangy and crisp with a dry hoppy finish.
O - Beautiful beer. Extremely tasty and seriously drinkable, absolutely no indication of the 7.3% abv. As indicated, bitterness is minimal. I dont know what the IBUs are, but they cannot be too high. Certainly more of an IPA than a double. But I just love it. More!
