Salivating over insane hop flavours and aromas. The time is nigh. No more festering away in hopless oblivion. Join the HopZombie Revolution.

BeerGutNic (8) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 8, 2015 does not count
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.
