650ml bottle served in a TG snifter.

Pours a darker stone-fruit colour, full-on hazy with a two finger white head, nice retention and longevity, lots and lots of lacing. Looks just about perfect, like a NE IPA. Smells primarily of juicy grapefruit and to a lesser extent, spicy passion fruit, mild resin, pine, mellow caramel, pale malt sweetness. Pretty appealing nose if you're the type that enjoys the New Zealand hop varietals. Flavour is balanced; caramel, passion fruit, spicy hops, resin, a bit of grapefruit and pine, with a mild-moderate citrus rind bitterness that lingers on the palate for a while. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, easy to drink, a bit lower on the carbonation than expected, and pleasantly bitter, mostly citrus rind and resin. Very nice, not difficult to drink by any means. Overall, a nice IPA by TG, one of their better ones. I may possibly prefer this to zeeLander, which is saying a lot.

16oz can into a pint glass. Packaged 9/10/19, so 2 months old.

Standard TG orange juice colored body. Small white head maintains in some form throughout leaving some nice lacing.

Light fruity aroma.

Upon tasting, it's slightly bitey on the tongue. No real citrus flavors come through. The bitterness only appears at the end. Tastes good overall. Somehow manages to be both strong and restrained.

Mouth well above medium, finish slightly soft, with a bitter hint

Overall, not King or Pseudo, but a pleasant and drinkable beer.
