COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

BOTTLE. 2015 Vintage. Clear gold to amber pour (honey?) minimal white head with solid lacing.. Subtle earthy hops & generic malt on the nose, not to much going on.. Good earthy, floral hops through out finishing with a nice bitter back end that lingers.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

weordie (334) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Pours deep copper with a huge foamy head. Quite a lot of pine notes in the aroma, very fresh smelling, not as citrusy as I’d like though. Great malty taste at the start that gives way to some pine and earthy flavours and a huge kick you in the face bitterness, really fresh tasting. Fantastic.

Amber color with a touch of copper. Full body, assertive flavors, fizzy, rich and hot mouthfeel, lingering palate. Intensely bitter but plenty of sweet balance, Very hoppy, resiny, citrusy, abundant but unobtrusive malt. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Doofgoblin (431) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Really tasty. Deep amber appearance with plenty of fruity hops. Is it me, or does it sort of smell like faint pineapple?The taste is very balanced with a deliciously sweet and complex malt with tons of bitter fruity hops. Finish is clean and refreshing (and bitter). Overall, great!

ElManana (1086) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle received in a trade. Very sweet, malty, heavily bitter, I like my IPA’s a tad more fruity/dank. This is quite one-dimensionally sweet and bitter. Not bad but not really refreshing.

SG111 (575) - New York, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Tap at Pacific Standard, Brooklyn. Pours pretty mahogany color, white head. Aroma is citrus, pineapple, orange, and a certain malt character that sets it apart from many IPAs but is hard to describe. Flavor is very malty for an IPA. Caramel notes, but prominent citrus and a slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

airrick2003 (690) - Louisiana, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Appearance: pours with a large light tan head, the beer is a pretty clear nice amber color, almost ruby in color Aroma: malty butter, some hop grass, dank Taste: bitter, has a caramel malt sweetness to it that's backseat to the bitterness, Palate: lively carbonation, medium mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste, Overall: a solid ipa, could use more flavors from the hops, all I am getting is bitterness from the hops, the malt backbone is nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
