Rangi (632) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2013
Amber poor with a nice head that recedes quickly. Taste is a nice bitter sweet balance. Some great hop flavours, just so different from the usual US hops. Full of hop fruity flavours and in the background a really nice caramel maltyness. Enjoyable ipa. Really like the nelson and motueka hops.

Bottle. Opaque orange. Aroma of fruit and citrus. So fresh. Taste is the same. Brilliantly dry. I want this to be on me.
