Hops have taken over the world. Permeated the senses of the minions. Hop Zombies now roam the streets. Lupulin ichor oozing from ravaged legions. Gorging, gouging, masticating. Salivating over insane hop flavours and aromas. The time is nigh. No more festering away in hopless oblivion. Join the HopZombie Revolution.

Tasted on tap at Fine Wine Delivery Co. Crisp golden colour with a lovely amount of head. Lively aroma of citrus and passion fruit hits the nose without being overpowering. One of the most aromatic beers. The first sip is scintillating, arousing all senses as it dances over the taste buds. Perfectly balanced with a clean finish, the 8.5% is easily drinkable enticing the next mouthful, need to be careful when drinking by the litre. One of my all time favourite beers which continues to impress year after year.

Bought from Fine Wine Delivery Company fresh on tap. Pours a slight orange-golden colour, with flavours of passionfruit and citrus, finishing off surprisingly clean. Dangerously drinkable at 8.5% ABV

Is there a better beer in the world? Massive aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and pine and even more power on the tongue. There are so many tastes that build on each other and cause your eyebrows to raise. Citrus, mango, pineapple, grass, leather... I can’t even begin to list them

anstei (154) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 8, 2015
500ml bottle from New World Saint Martins, Christchurch. Pours clear amber, very beautiful. Strong grassy nose, foreshadowing what will come once you take a sip: A fruity, citric, complex combination of hops, well balanced and interesting even towards end.

Pours lovely golden with minimal head. Aroma is awesome! Plenty of hop aromatics with scents of rockmelon and various tropical fruits. It has Low carbonation and feels like velvet on the palate. It's very smooth with a beautiful fruity, piney, bitter finish. Great beer!
