Pours hazy golden orange with a nice off white head. Nose has herbacious hops that bring masses of citrus and tropical fruit. I’d say nelson sauvin or galaxy varieties. Palate translates well. A heap of tropical fruit: mango, passionfruit. A touch of dry grainy aussie malt pops up, but is very feint. Certainly not enough to offend, almost a little bit biscuity. Finishes with green grassy hops and medium bitterness. Really good! Practically oozes fresh hops.

The brewers have demonstrated in a beer exactly what it feels like to pick hops in the field

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 There’s a lot of sweet citrus on the nose, followed by very earthy notes (almost like a stale bag of chips) and then a lot of resin at the finish. All up, the aroma it’s a bit unpleasant for my taste. In the mouth there’s some orange flavour with a fairly restrained hop presence and more of that yeasty earthiness. There’s little of the hoppy bitterness you’d expect from a beer that bills itself as being hopped to the hilt, and it finishes a little short.
20 August 2012 - Had another bottle of this, not realising I’d had it before. I didn’t notice so much earthiness this time, and certainly no stale bag of chips, so I wonder if I got a bad bottle last time. That’s not to say I don’t get any yeast - certainly it’s still there. Other than that, the flavours were the same as last time. Still a little thin and short on the palate.

A beautiful pale copper/gold colour with a bright white, fluffy head. Not much lacing. Smells really unique - fruity and sour; grapefruit, passion fruit and limes. Drinks well - really smooth but not.partocularly flavorsome. Interesting hop profile - slight pine and lemon taste, a little underdone for mine. Not as dense as I’d like, but smooth and coats well. Good carbonation.

Nice and lively beer, with a great nose. Light cloudy yellow, with a nice off white head. Palate is a bit thin, with a slightly funny yeast character... But immensely quaffable, and a good session beer.. although not at the price...

Green is the best word for this beer. Smells like fresh hops as soond you crack it. Mild pine, less citrus but a hint. Pours clear amber with foamy white head. Taste is almost all hops but in a balanced and complex way without riding roughshod over one’s palate. Finishes relatively quickly given the bitterness, but fresh.

A citrus smelling beer with a lemon/lime feeling about it. Looks fine and had a good head. Really enjoyed and is a great summer session beer.
