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.

Can from BWS September 2013. Easy drinking beer that goes down well on a hot day. Good session ale that keeps you coming back for more.

CacheManyHose (176) - HONG KONG - JUL 2, 2014
Can. Smells of fruity floral hops and tangerine. Taste is quite sweet, like orange juice or sherbet, with some underlying hop. Medium body that's very smooth. A bit like fizzy more bitter orange juice.

HKdIPA (235) - HONG KONG - JUL 2, 2014
Can from Brewcraft on the bus. Fruity hops aroma - apple juice and pineapple. Very light bodied - can pick up the NZ hop flavors at the beginning but a bit faint. Then crisp summer beer with not a tremendous amount of flavor. Good for the beach.

jmgreenuk (4334) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Can at Taps, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a slightly hazy straw with a thin white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is light citrus fruit hop and yeast. The flavour is light bitter with a light lemon citrus yeast sherbet palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Perfect for the summer I guess!

Pyobon (918) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2014
(Can) Clear straw with almost no head. Lovely fruity aroma (exotic fruits) with an interesting peppery edge. Light body with bright carbonation. Light fruit foretaste which develops some sophistication as some peppery and hoppy notes appear. There is a small amount of bitterness giving a fairly clean finish, although it is rather thin towards the end. Overall, pretty good for a beer in a can, and quite drinkable, if a little light and easy, which I think is described as thirst-quenching.

Jado (526) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2014
From 375 ml can. Pours a perfectly clear yellow-gold with a thin white head that disappears almost completely. Lively carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pine needles, passion fruit, guava and a touch of melon. Taste is fresh tropical fruit at the front end before a moderate pine resin bitterness in the mid-palate. Citrus and more tropical fruit at end. Light fruity aftertaste. Refreshing and more-ish.

Westkyoto77 (520) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 13, 2014
Draught. Big pale pint. Faint aromas of peach, breezy hops. Juicy and wheaty. Fairly light body, but had decent flavour. Something about it was a little odd, but it was still a pretty good hot weather beer.
