This ale marks our journey to the only place on the planet where fresh hops are harvested in our spring, the Southern Hemisphere. Our task was daunting-we needed to get the hops picked, dried, flown halfway across the world and into our brew kettle in a little over a week’s time. The result is a North-by-South fusion of fresh New Zealand hops blended with the finest North American malts. Its robust hop character presents an intriguing floral-citrus aroma leading to layers of fresh-hop spiciness. Enjoy!

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Tap at the Euston Tap - 01/08/12. Pours to a mid cloudy amber with a decent creamy looking head. Slightly floral hops on the nose and a pinch of spice - cinnamony. Well rounded taste - not too bitter, citrus - grapefruit and orange then a little mellower at the end - think biscuity/malts. Medium bodied - smooth and dry finish. Decent enough - plenty of better examples out there though!

Koelschtrinker (14127) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Weicher, aber schon gut gehopfter Antrunk. Im Mittelteil steigt die Hopfigkeit noch etwas und befindet sich dann auf mittlerem Niveau. Weiterhin weich, wenig getreidig, erst spät ziemlich bitter, der Hopfen zeigt sich hier deutlicher, neben dem aromatischen Hopfen ist allerdings auch eine gewisse Wässrigkeit vorhanden. 9/9/10/8/9

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Pours a murky orange color with a dense white head. Rather heavy on the citrus peel aromas, particularly orange. A nice floral quality along with a hint of pine in the background. A touch of sweet malt is also there. A bit of bready malt up front, quickly followed by orange peel and a solid floral and perfume quality. A moderate bitterness on the finish.

Bright golden-bronze colour with a rocky head. Hoppy aroma is woody, lightly spicy with a strong toasty, chocolatey malt base. Very spicy, woody character with moderate bitterness. Lots of crystal and chocolate malt character. Well-balanced.

bhensonb (12960) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 19, 2008
24 oz. bottle. Brilliant copper color with a significant off-white head. Floral/fruity hop aroma over a lightly roasted caramel. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is smacking good fruity/citrus hop over a bready malty flavor. Seems quite well balanced. Finishes reasonably bitter. Drinks smoothly and easily. Killer ale.
