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.

Clear golden color with a thin white head. Big, bright citrus and pine hop nose. This is definitely a hop head beer. The flavors include orange juice, ruby red grapefruit, pineapple, apricot jam, and some pine. Not the most balanced beer, but it is very tasty for those who want a lot of hops in beer.
