COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The gap between crack and thunder is closing in... Brewed on subsequent days, the Yakima and Motueka Monsters are an artistic examination of terroir. Both beers use 93% Golden Promise malt and 7% Caramalt. Both beers are hopped to 56ibu with around 9g/L of hops. Both beers are fermented with a US ale yeast. Yakima Monster is hopped with Nugget, Simcoe and Amarillo hops. * New Zealandís first Hurricanes catchment intra-zone semi-professional collaboration (between Yeastie Boys and www.libertybrewing.co.nz).

Itís been a while since I had one of these - but I thought Iíd get in before the next in the series comes out. Itís one of my favourite beer styles, and the Invercargil brewed incarnation (as dispensed for the keg) was a knockout.

Less assertive aroma than itís NZ brother. More even bitterness, rounded mouthfeel and a lighter drier finish. Overall ibuís feel a touch higher than Motueka. Maybe slightly more well rounded and not as intense.

Hazy orange colour with thick creamy white head. Subtile hoparoma. Big hop flavour which leavesbig hop residue in mouth leaving citirusy aftertaste.

Some grapefruit pith and rind on the nose. Maybe a little muddly, but an American muddle so something like a Contra to Iran or a dabble into Honduras so its strikes a blow for freedom in a roundabout way. Big and bitter and bruising, and its a one-day-i-love-it sort of beer, so Iím rating it halfway between that and the one-day-i-find-its-sister-hotter. Finishes nice tho, not too malty sweet which can happen with these sorts of beers. The sort of beer for a rainy day, or a sunny day, and several days in between. Cheers!

grapengrain (124) - Havelock North, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 8, 2010
Crisp US hop dominates - almost to the point of astringency. Very clean crisp malt.

Pours golden, white head. Subdued grassy hop aroma.
Intense bitterness hits with the first sip, moving into piny woody hop flavour. Thereís no real sweetness here, just hops and more hops. The lack of any sweetness does make it a lot less drinkable than itís brother monster.

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 29, 2010
Pours golden with a thin head that dissipates. Nice earthy hop aroma - smells crisp.
Flavours are full of the very distinguishable simcoe hops. The hops along with alcohol and carbonation makes this beer rather spicy.
Dry and bitter, like Motueka. Nice.
