A collaboration between Tampa’s Cigar City, Gainesville’s Swamp Head, and Jacksonville Beach’s Green Room. This bitter is hopped with New Zealand hops, and is named for a town in New Zealand.

maekchu (3509) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Stinky, rasty nose. Coppery gold, no head. A sneaky bitterness, which intensifies a bit through mid and final. Thin. Maybe needs more malt or less hopping. Not integrated.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2012
6/17/12. On tap. Clear light amber pour with a small khaki head. Light bread and biscuit on the aroma with touches of hop character. Nice bready and malty flavor with crackers and a bit of mineral aspect. Not bad!

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Draft… Mostly clear dirty-orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose offers subtle notes of citrusy, lemony, grassy hops. Medium-bodied and watery with lively carbonation. The hops are unassuming and only medium bitter, but quite flavorful – citrus rinds and piths aplenty. Crisp, moderately bitter finish. Refreshing.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Tap flight at CCB. Light amber pour with a sticky white head. Wet horse blanket aroma. Taste is caramel malt with a distinctive blast of Euro bitter hops. I'm not a fan of the Roma but his is. Dry flavorful for a 4.7% ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

burg326 (5384) - Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2012
On tap at Cigar City, poured a cloudy golden color, aromas of melon, corn husks, some malt and caramel. Flavors are the same, not a big bitter fan.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Tap at CCB. Clear amber with no retention or lace. Nose is odd, very nutty, very husky and raw. Some sticky orange. Taste is soapy and bland with chemicals and heavy diacetyl. Ick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Travlr (21638) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Draft at CCB. Hazy gilden color, scant white head. Nice peppery straw aroma. Taste us lemony pepper. Nice.
