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.

Poured from a bottle it is a light gold color with a slight head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a pineapple grapefruit flavor. It resonates slightly bitter

Cask handpull at Tap East. Clear gold thick lasting near white head. Hugely big tasty nettle really leafy big hop. Tasty as hell. You do have to take a deep breath after each gulp as it is so big on the leafy hop. Good stuff though

Light, but not empty MF. Gristslickness. Long bitter/hoppy aftertaste. Another excellent pale ale, in no particular national style - great!
