Tuatara/Beer Here Waimea Hopcat


Brewed by Tuatara Brewing Company
Paraparaumu, New Zealand
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 17 | Alcohol: 4.7%
Tuatara Brewing from New Zealand and Beerhere from Denmark laugh at the tyranny of distance. They’ve come together over 18,000kms to create Hopcat, a hoppy red ale brewed with the brand new kiwi hop, Waimea. Debuting in a flash of bright orange with an off-white head, Hopcat releases hop aromas of pine and strawberry. The flavour is bready malts and caramelised sugars while the long finish leaves a rich and decadent mouthfeel. If you really want Hopcat to purr, serve it between 7-9 degrees C.
