Typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine, this wonderful South Pacific Ale has a great grassy nose with kiwi fruits in abundance. The wonderful fruity mouth gives way to a great bitter finish. 5.2%

bottle. Slightly floral, butterscotchy/sweet aroma, clear deep golden/copper in colour. Slighty bitter, citrusy with a perfume/alcohol presence, with a nice hoppy after taste on the tongue, very drinkable, very nice!! One i’ll recommend to friends.

I need try this again. I found it golden ale tasting. Not much hop to taste, the yeast dominated. Meh.

Straw color. No head and a little carb. Smells honey, grass, flowers and sweet white wine. More wine in the taste along with the same flowers and grass. Medium body with nice long bitter finish.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - FEB 26, 2016
Giallo dorato scarico con una velatura ed una buona schiuma bianca. Al naso i sentori di agrumi, uva bianca e erba tagliata. In bocca scorre via leggera con un amaro che si incatena al palato e resta per un finale lungo con il ritorno di frutta tropicale.

Golden hazy yellow color with a very thick white head. Citrus aroma is very faint with spices. Strong hoppy and bitter taste. Slight citrus taste. Very strong IPA, but nothing is overwhelming.
