COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part two of Yeastie Boys Summer 2009 release. As per Nerdherder B: the beer is built on a base of Bairds Golden Promise with Caramalt and Crystal. Hopped to 45ibu, again with Nelson Sauvin and NZ Cascade, but this one Riwaka late in the boil (as opposed to the Motueka in B). Fermented with the same American ale yeast.

Yeasty, metallic aroma - This bottle might be a bit old?
The flavours are a bit metallic as well, but making their way through are flavours of fruity hops on a sweet toffeeish malt base, with some alcohol that adds warmth.
I think this might be a bit better fresh - hasnt done so well in the bottle I have. But still lovely :)

Bright gold in colour with thin white head, big hop come through and long on palate. "BIG GRASS HOP"

Tried it fresh and it was... okay. I just tried it a couple of months after release and the hops have somehow woken up! A beer that punches above its weight with pungent hop aroma and full body with a crisp hoppy finish. Kinda blew my mind with how much it changed!

i think this Riwaka is my sort of hop. Nose is all kinds of funky grpefruit and pine. In the mouth it feels bigger than 5% with a good bitter bite sitting on the back of the tongue. Great session beer for those who love their hops upside the head. Nate2g with the assist on this one. Cheers.

Bottle. Appears dark amber with a creamy beige head that lasted nicely. Nose is dominant of citrus, mint, apricot marmalade and woody/pine notes. Very unique flavour from the Riwaka with some grassy character showing up as well. Like its B brethren the drinkability is off the chain. A refreshingly dry and hoppy finish. Choice stuff. Bottle courtesy of SorenE - cheers!
