3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Kris Wines. Pours unclear amber orange without much head. Aroma has fresh flowers, hop pellets, fresh peach, sweet oranges, smells a bit organic/mineral, rather rural and hayish. Not what I expected from the Riwaka. Taste is balanced and hoppy. Still the peach, pineapple and orange fruitiness, but the rural qualities still comes through, yeasty qualities being a bit dry and tasting a bit like baker’s yeast. The body is surprisingly thin and it’s really easily drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16th July 2011
Hazy orange - amber beer, good white head. Light tangerine - orange nose. Light palate, a little airy and with a light touch of dryness. Good fresh hops. Tangerine marmalade with a little Satsuma. Mild grapefruit and grape and a little of that dirtyness you would associate with Nelson Sauvin. Light semi dry finish. Very nice pale ale. Hope we get a full IPA with this hop.
