A nice floral aroma with great bitterness that lasts on the palate. Nice long lasting bitterness. beer-yum (1900) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2016 Tropical aroma in an amber pour. Hop forward balance with a smooth restrained finish. An excellent complementary brew to their similarly tasty Base Isolator. Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 13, 2014
Clear amber with an off-white head. Angry hop aromas - spices, resin, gum and spruce needles. Desserty malt evident as well. The flavours are an almost carbon copy of the aroma - all APA and angry. Tasty stuff and well within style. chinchill (5340) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
We’re lucky to have such a plethora of beautifully done beers in this country.
On tap at the F&B in late Dec. 2013.
Grassy, fruity, weedy, herbal with the NZ (hop) twist on this American style showing. Appropriately hoppy with a well set level of balancing malts and only mildly bitter, even in the lingering, hoppy aftertaste. Just a hint of dank and sour from, I think, the NZ hops.
Feel: medium body and carbonation.
