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.

On tap during RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is citrus and hemp. Medium mouth with juicy fruit hop, citrus, lingering bitterness, very good.

Crowler shared by Dmac. Pours a golden color...after all the foam settles...aroma is lots of lemony citrus, and then some funky notes. Taste is of lemon, citrus rind, some mild fruit and then funky weirdness. This had some real potential if it wasn’t infected.

growler thanks to Keith. Nose is very peppery with very light fruity notes, really got to dig for them. Pours with a HUGE white head that is very rocky, long lasting, and laces well. A cloudy light orange color. Taste Is grassy, but not as prominent as European hops. light cracker and bread malt flavors. Pepper comes out more as it warms. Seems to overall lack the fruity pebbles character I’ve gotten from this hop many times before. overall good and sessionable though

Sample at Peg’s Cantina. Hazy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Tropical fruit, hops and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, mangoes and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

32oz crowler via trade. Poured 90-95% bubbly bright white head over a hazy flat yellow body. Aroma has a little funk to it, not a good funk either. Notes of band aids, lemon, medicine. Body is fizzy carbonation, actually overly fizzy, medium bodied and quicker fading on the aftertaste. Flavor is better than the aroma luckily. Notes of lime, lemon, oranges, bread. Meh would love to try one that isnt messed up.

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
