4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours beautiful cloudy lemon with a white head and decent lacing. Aroma brings a sweet and juicy hop presence from the delicate Motueka hops, some orange notes. I love these New Zealand hops!! Flavor brings juicy zesty hops as well, quite unique like the Nelson hops, but a little more potent it seems. There are nice bitter orange flavors as well settling on the tongue.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy straw yellow body, dense white head, thin sheet-like lacing. Nose is delightfully aromatic: grapefruit, passion fruit, kiwi and tangerine. Light grassy notes come in as the beer warms. Flavor is similar but adds in some tea-like herbal qualities. Light bodied, a bit thin and overly silky. Muted finish. Could be drier to compliment the beautiful hop profile.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head...nice retention and great lacing. Aroma is very herbal with a faint hint of rind and spruce...some funk too. Flavor is herbal and rindy with a touch of lemon...brett just slightly peeking through. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry herbal/grapefruit finish.
