Pint had at the source. Aroma is huge tropical aromas and citrus. Flavor is full on tangerine/tangelo. Very good. I’m a huge fan of brews made with motueka hops and this brew didn’t disappoint.

32 oz growler shared by AdamC from a trade he made. Bright yellow color with massive head and lace. Aroma is just awesome, floral hops with some juicy fruits.
The flavor starts with juicy fruit (grapefruit, tropical notes, mild lemon) the bitterness is very low, almost doesn’t exist. The body is light but crisp. The beer ends clean and very refreshing. Very nice display of a single hop, great!

From a growler. Acquired in a trade, stored cold. Pours a very hazy tan yellow with a 1 finger white head that’s creamy and dense. Smells acidic and juicy as all Hell. really great piney almost resinous with a lot of tropical juices. Grassy as well. It’s a little sweet, grassy, pine, hay, yeah table sugar at the finish. Rally juicy. I love the Motueka hop flavor so this is great.

Pours a light hazy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is lemons and freshly milled grain. Taste follows with a touch of sweetness from the malt. Lemons and earthy grain. So nice.

Back on tap at the brewery. Pint glass. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a foamy, long-lasting white head. Aroma is as citrus-heavy as expected, with some black pepper and a little sweet malt in the back. Big grapefruit hit in the flavor mellowing down into a sweeter mango profile. Not much of a hop bite. Nicely balanced session pale.

Crowler shared by Dmac. Pours a golden color...after all the foam settles...aroma is lots of lemony citrus, and then some funky notes. Taste is of lemon, citrus rind, some mild fruit and then funky weirdness. This had some real potential if it wasn’t infected.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
growler thanks to Keith. Nose is very peppery with very light fruity notes, really got to dig for them. Pours with a HUGE white head that is very rocky, long lasting, and laces well. A cloudy light orange color. Taste Is grassy, but not as prominent as European hops. light cracker and bread malt flavors. Pepper comes out more as it warms. Seems to overall lack the fruity pebbles character I’ve gotten from this hop many times before. overall good and sessionable though

Sample at Peg’s Cantina. Hazy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Tropical fruit, hops and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, mangoes and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
