17 o bottle. Pours golden with a slight orange hue. Nice and refreshing. Grapefruit, pine, resin, passionfruit and floral notes and a nice balance/ crispness to it. Not wimpy, but the NZ hops are somehow a bit less arrogant? in-your-face? than the American equivalent. Finishes with an pleasant bitterness. Really good.

Poured from a bottle it is a light gold color with a slight head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a pineapple grapefruit flavor. It resonates slightly bitter

LazyPyro (1809) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2017
330ml bottle. Hazy golden pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruit, passionfruit, apricot, citrus. Taste is similarly fruity with a nice sweetish malty backbone reminiscent of a good bitter, tropical fruit hops adding some bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, relatively low bitterness for the style and very easy drinking.
