COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale marks our journey to the only place on the planet where fresh hops are harvested in our spring, the Southern Hemisphere. Our task was daunting-we needed to get the hops picked, dried, flown halfway across the world and into our brew kettle in a little over a week’s time. The result is a North-by-South fusion of fresh New Zealand hops blended with the finest North American malts. Its robust hop character presents an intriguing floral-citrus aroma leading to layers of fresh-hop spiciness. Enjoy!

Wonderful hazy golden orange colour with a little beige topping. Home made bread, caramel malt, pine, cumquat, citrus and i reckon peach way back there. Pretty much like all thats going on here, this is a top beer from this crew.

Pours a dark amber body with a medium head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Nice hoppy aroma with tones of citrus and a faint feel of caramel. Very nice for an IPA.

Bärnstensfärg med fint vitt skum. Doftar fräscht, smakar lika med citrus och humle. Lagom på många sätt, god.

Bärnstensfärgad med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar friskt av humlen men även mycket karamellmalt.

Zekada (143) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of hops, fruits, vanilla and citrus. Pours clear amber with a rich creamy white head. A complex taste which offers some hops and some and a little salvia. Palate has a very thin body and it dosen’t really lingers in the mouth. Overall a decent IPA though a bit boring.

This is right up my... Like it... A real beer aroma with no perfume traces, nice thick top and clear light brown color. Full and rich taste, again no perfume shit, good solid beer taste with a good bitterness, rather lively palate with a smooth feel..
