After having tried a few bottles,at least a week fridge time is needed. Aromas of tropical fruits. Overall flavor very much like Sam Adams Latitude 48 IPA. Some grapefruit,but spicy,herbal notes as well as lemon,lime,& other tropical fruits. Amber copper color. Good head & decent carbonation. Very drinkable for an IPA,I suspect,due to the unique nature of the NZ hops. Def gunna brew this more often. I think it's my best beer to date,especially PM beers.
