COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one’s come about after a couple of summers playing around with aromatic, hoppy and sessionable ales like Skipping Girl and Goldilocks. There’s plenty of malted and unmalted wheat in the grist make up, and a big burst of fruity Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hops on the nose. For the tech-heads the numbers are: 20BU, 7EBC, 4.7%ABV. We’re also pretty pumped to have packed it in a 375 ml can, for all your outdoor summer thirst quenching requirements.

The hurt of them being sold to a global giant is tempered by the fact there has not yet been a discernible change to taste. Was on this before the takeover and happy to report the Ale is still refreshing after. Soft floral aromas/taste and not too heavy make this a great session-beer option.

HopMagnet (17) - Katoomba, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2016
375mL can. Poured pale gold with a white foamy head and light carbonation. Fresh summery aromas in the glass, with touches of tropical fruits, pineapple and passionfruit. Palate more restrained, light and crisp with subtle citrus bitterness to finish. Light ’n’ easy.

ANZUShophunter (275) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2015
From can in shaker. Very light golden hue with a burst of fruity hops on the nose. Quite lively and refreshing, hints of grapefruit remind me a bit of Fresca. Very nice for hot weather.

KeefOz (1517) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2015
BB 18/05/16. Poured a clear pale straw colour with a two-finger white dense foam head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation low and medium. Aroma subtly of nice tropical fruits - grapefruit, passionfruit, possibly pineapple, possibly melon plus sweet malt. Taste of pineapple, passionfruit and subtle grapefruit; nice flavours; subdued bitterness (there but not over-powering). Light body. Crisp, fresh with a lingering slight but nice bitterness on the finish. Quite nice!

StevieT (1538) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2015
From a can. It’s pretty much as you would expect, light, fresh, crisp and sessionable.

swannycellars (43) - Swanbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
Crack.... loads of passionfruit and pineapple leap out of the can. Flavour is lots of tropical fruit which dies quickly into some slight biscuit. Great refreshing carbonation. Designed to drink by the 6 pack on 48 degree days.
