Keg at Tweedies Bar, Grasmere. Murky gold with a thin white head. Big citrus and floral hit with a very dry finish. Loads of hops here but lacked the depth and balance of ghe Hardknot Infra-Red I’d had just before, and maybe suffered by comparison. Still decent though.

17 o bottle. Pours golden with a slight orange hue. Nice and refreshing. Grapefruit, pine, resin, passionfruit and floral notes and a nice balance/ crispness to it. Not wimpy, but the NZ hops are somehow a bit less arrogant? in-your-face? than the American equivalent. Finishes with an pleasant bitterness. Really good.

Cybercat (3198) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a fairly thick ivory head. Aroma has a tempting tone of fresh hops, with hints of malt and tropical fruit. Hops really come out in the flavor, riding undertones of malt and sweet tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is smooth, reasonably firm, not very fizzy, leaving a mango and hoppy finish. A toast to the Kiwis!

Bottle. Piney slightly catty aromas. Pours very bright yellow gold. Piney catty hops with hints of tropical fruits. Finishes light & dry. I like it and would like to try it cask conditioned.

Crystal clear yellow. Thin white head. Dull skunky hop nose. Dull clean lager like flavore. Light bodied and a bit floral boring ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
