The all American (hops) hero, real West Coast AIPA, but more refined (thats real. AIPA, not the real West Coast  that would be Taranaki) Pours rich golden amber with a coppery tinge, and a creamy white head lacing beautifully. The aroma is complex with tropical fruit including passion fruit, pineapple and melons all vying for attention. The flavour is complex, with the tropical fruits now balanced out by the layered malt flavour and intense hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is rich but crisp and clean without being dry, and then the aftertaste is deep with a solid lingering bitterness. This is generously hopped beer, with solid yet complex flavours. Serve chilled in a tall pilsner glass, allowing the amazing colour to shine, and the aromas to excite the drinker. This beer has nailed the balance between flavour, hop bitterness and alcohol content enabling it to be enjoyed in any season, its a thirst quencher in the height of Summer, but equally at home in front of the fire in the depths of Winter
