Pours amber with a white fading head.
Nose shows sweet clean malt, some resinous hops and piny notes. Very malty.
Similarly malty flavours, lots of clean sweet malt alongside a bit of piny and resinous hops.

Pours a clear golden color with a soapy white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of tropical and citrus notes.

Tastes of the fruity hops with a solid malt base. Hops lead off with notes of tropical fruits, grapefruit, and a bit of pine. Moderate bitterness. Malts come next with caramel, toasted bread, and toffee. A fair amount of sweetness keeps it balanced. Finishes with some fruitiness and lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is tasty and at a good price ($5.92 for 22oz).

Pours a light copper hue with a fluffy three finger head and lacing everywhere, the smell is very typical of NZ hops with hints of passionfruit, kiwi fruit and berries, the mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with above moderate carbonation and the tastes are fruity NZ hops, fruity berries, a touch of toffee malts, candy and finished with a kiwi fruit bitterness and overall its an above average IPA but lacks the qualities of a great IPA and probably be a while before I revisit cheers.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 27/6/14

A clear amber liquid, just a few bubbles are visible but it pumps out a short lived two finger foam that leaves jut a few polka dots for lace
- second pour has some retention and a few partial rings left behind on the way down, perhaps another dirty glass

T passion fruit, guava, lychee juice, pineapple, peaches, white grape, lots of tropical fruit, has some sweetness to it and some pine and spruce, floral notes about what I expected from Kiwi hops

T more rind then the fresh fruit on the nose, lemon comes out, caramels hard to miss, not quite what the nose was offering but solid nonetheless

M medium bodied, a crisp bitter snap, bubbles stop short of creamy, slick on the palate, sweet rind on the finish

O solid brew from start to finish, smells the best part but not lacking in other areas, something I'd drink again

this ones taking me back to my recent trip to NZ, the hop profiles hard to miss and I like it, not amazing but I'm surprised it doesn't get a little more love
