COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale marks our journey to the only place on the planet where fresh hops are harvested in our spring, the Southern Hemisphere. Our task was daunting-we needed to get the hops picked, dried, flown halfway across the world and into our brew kettle in a little over a weeks time. The result is a North-by-South fusion of fresh New Zealand hops blended with the finest North American malts. Its robust hop character presents an intriguing floral-citrus aroma leading to layers of fresh-hop spiciness. Enjoy!

BOTTLE. 2015 Vintage. Clear gold to amber pour (honey?) minimal white head with solid lacing.. Subtle earthy hops & generic malt on the nose, not to much going on.. Good earthy, floral hops through out finishing with a nice bitter back end that lingers.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

weordie (1034) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Pours deep copper with a huge foamy head. Quite a lot of pine notes in the aroma, very fresh smelling, not as citrusy as Id like though. Great malty taste at the start that gives way to some pine and earthy flavours and a huge kick you in the face bitterness, really fresh tasting. Fantastic.

Bebum (851) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Amber color with a touch of copper. Full body, assertive flavors, fizzy, rich and hot mouthfeel, lingering palate. Intensely bitter but plenty of sweet balance, Very hoppy, resiny, citrusy, abundant but unobtrusive malt. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Doofgoblin (512) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Really tasty. Deep amber appearance with plenty of fruity hops. Is it me, or does it sort of smell like faint pineapple?The taste is very balanced with a deliciously sweet and complex malt with tons of bitter fruity hops. Finish is clean and refreshing (and bitter). Overall, great!

ElManana (2035) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle received in a trade. Very sweet, malty, heavily bitter, I like my IPAs a tad more fruity/dank. This is quite one-dimensionally sweet and bitter. Not bad but not really refreshing.

SG111 (1523) - New York, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Tap at Pacific Standard, Brooklyn. Pours pretty mahogany color, white head. Aroma is citrus, pineapple, orange, and a certain malt character that sets it apart from many IPAs but is hard to describe. Flavor is very malty for an IPA. Caramel notes, but prominent citrus and a slightly bitter finish. Not bad.
