>> Wasn’t tasting super fresh so went with Venusian Pale Ale every time essentially. Stickier, denser, not really popping or refreshing. Possibly damaged in transit.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Festival of Dankness, San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy golden colour with a small thick head. Aroma of strong pungent NZ hoppiness, white grapes and citrus. Flavour is very strong and rich with NZ hops, herbs, grapefruit, weed, mild sweetness and orange pith. Medium bodied. Very juicy and heavy. Nice showcase of pure NZ hops.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. A translucent orange beer with a firm collar of white head gat laces well. I get pungent white pepper, fresh juniper berries, orangey and grapefruit citrus on the nose. Taste is peppery and resinous dry with a substantial and lingering dry bitter aftertaste. Malt bill is quite subdued in this very hop forward beer which may be off-putting for some. Palate is medium-full and quite lively. Certainly shows off those NZ hops.
