UPDATED: JUN 2, 2019 Draft at Cellarmaker House of Pizza. Hazy yellow gold with a small white head. The aroma is DAAAAAANK and tropical, reminds me of the brewskis in Nelson a.k.a. Whakatu (pronounced 'FUCK-a-too'), New Zealand. The flavor is nicely tropical, white grape, hoppy, dank. Medium body with the rough feel you hope for. Great!

Can at Trillium Field Trip, 8/4/18.
Thoroughly hazy, pale-brassy-golden with a sizable white head showing moderate retention.
Nose is markedly full of well-done Nelson hops. Light, dry passion fruit mixing with rich, mineral-heavy white wine and leafy, dank, lush, pine-tinged lemon. Biscuit and cracker behind it is light and stays out of the way. No alcohol, flaw or resin. Gets lightly-to-moderately juicy with warming.
In the mouth it's very soft, dry and "fuzzy" with engaging, low carbonation and chewy, biscuity, malty textures. Passion fruit, lime, pine, lemon and mineral are strong, growing tropical and juicy over time. Clean and free of resin, though still a bit subdued, overall.

Fresh can, Pours a sexy bright golden yellow with fluffy white head. Nose and flavor of clean Nelson, herbs, melon, mango, and grapefruit. Only Nelson beer that was better this year was from old man Hill, figures.

16 oz. can @ Field Trip 2018. This is what I look for in the hot variety. White grape, dry hair, with a very nicely dry texture. Mild juice. Very refreshing and what I expect from Cellarmaker, great!

Zymurgeist2 (3100) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 2, 2017
Draught at Gourmet Haus. Pours a pureed yellow with full white head. Massive juice on the aroma, doesn’t quite follow through in the flavor. A little thin on the mouthfeel.

Leighton (27570) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Keg at the brewery taproom. Pours unclear yellow-gold with a light, foamy white head. The nose has massive dank hop character, tropical fruits, cat piss. Medium sweet flavour, nicely dry but also dank, with notes of melon, grapefruit, peach. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish, with more dry and pithy citrus, pee, melon, grapefruit. Outstanding.

Hazy gold, no head. smells like white grape with lemons. juicy with a dry middle to finish like a pasty mouthfeel. cereal and almonds and a dry finish. flavor was great. mouthfeel missed it.
