COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first in our Unicycle Series. A New Zealand hop known for big citrus - mostly orange - character in both flavor and aroma. The malt profile is kept simple and is there only to support and showcase the hops. Light amber to caramel in color and at only 4.6% ABV the hope really shine and make a unique drinking experience.

Draft at Wiregrass Brass Tap. Pours a slightly hazed golden yellow with a medium sized white head. Excellent lacing for such a light beer. Nice citrus hop aroma. Very clean and easy drinking with slight hop bite in the finish.

Light single hop ipa. New hop from New Zealand. For being so light it does have a lot of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Peg’s. Pours a very hazy yellow with a nice white head. Nose is huge tropical fruit, mango, papaya, and some herbs. Flavor is a tropical fruit explosion with lots of papaya, mango, and some light citrus. Light in body and an awesome illustration of Motueka, especially as it finishes at 4.6%. A beautiful beer.

On tap at Intuition Ale Works for RBWG! Pours a hazy golden yellow with fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma of fresh, resinous citrusy hops and just a hint of pale malts. Taste follows with a good bitter finish. This is pretty awesome, pretty similar to the Freewheel, but again a pale ale that taste like an IPA.

On draft at RBWG for grand tasting, poured a light hazy orange color with aromas of dank hops, and citrus. Flavors are huge citrusy orange, dankness, and a touch of pine. Easy beer I could drink all day.

So the menu says light amber to caramel, but this thing is lightly hazed and yellowish golden. Its really pleasant looking. Smells like oranges... Loads of oranges... Light citrus and some hops, fairly smooth though. Flavor is juicy oranges, orange orange peel... Citrus and mild hop, not overly bitter at all. Quite drinkable... I’m definitely a fan!
