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!

ABS (479) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. PKGD 240414. Pours amber. Lots of white, frothy head. Medium body. Borderline oily. Medium to low carbonation. Below medium bitterness (for an IPA). Pine, light citrus, grass, hint of grain flavour. 5 months old is too old it seems.

Thanks to brunnsbe for the bottle (PKGD 24.4.2014). Very balanced aroma with delicious malts and fruity hops. Nice reddish color and thin head. Taste is balanced as well. I was expecting a lot more hoppy profile. Still, a very good beer.

Flaska i present från @thaalcoholic, tack! Bärnstensfärgad vätska med stort vitt skum. Härligt fruktig doft med samma smak, drar åt mango. Klingar av lite för fort men smarrig

Zekada (143) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of hops, fruits, vanilla and citrus. Pours clear amber with a rich creamy white head. A complex taste which offers some hops and some and a little salvia. Palate has a very thin body and it dosen’t really lingers in the mouth. Overall a decent IPA though a bit boring.
