Tuatara Brewery India Pale Ale

The Tuatara Brewery is in Reikorangi, New Zealand.

This 5.0% ABV beer pours a dark copper-amber-orange in color.  There is a whirlwind of carbonation in the glasss and a very large, foamy, thick head that is off-white in color.  The aroma is fruity, apricots, lemon, almost vinous, and some yeast.  The taste follows the aromas, but also has a rich caramel malt.  The finish is more tart and tangy than bitter, slightly dry, but with the underlying sweet malt apparent.  An interesting beer.
