On tap at Triple Rock. Listed as a New Zealand hop IPA. Pours a clear light amber with a small white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. The aroma is fruity with white wine grape dominating. There is also some caramel, dankness, and some floral notes. The initial taste has a light sweetness and tastes very much like it smelled. White wine grapes, caramel, dankness, and floral hops. The finish is drying with a decent bitterness. Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Pretty solid beer.
