COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed as a replacement for our long serving house APA ’Base Isolator’, Base Jumper has the same malt profile and ABV, but made with a barrage of different hops (US Simcoe, US Cascade, US Centenial, NZ Orbit, NZ Motueka).

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 A solid replacement for their excellent Base Isolator. Not sure I like it quite as much but likely that is a "the good old days" delusion more than anything to do with this beer. Will rate it similarly until convinced otherwise.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Angry hop aromas - spices, resin, gum and spruce needles. Desserty malt evident as well. The flavours are an almost carbon copy of the aroma - all APA and angry. Tasty stuff and well within style. We’re lucky to have such a plethora of beautifully done beers in this country.

On tap at the F&B in late Dec. 2013. Grassy, fruity, weedy, herbal with the NZ (hop) twist on this American style showing. Appropriately hoppy with a well set level of balancing malts and only mildly bitter, even in the lingering, hoppy aftertaste. Just a hint of dank and sour from, I think, the NZ hops. Feel: medium body and carbonation.
