COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Back in the day, our US supply of APA went up in smoke, literally. So rather than inciting a riot, we turned to some home grown cones as a temporary fix. The result? The evolution of a new style, an Aotearoa Pale Ale to rival its American counterpart. With citrus flavours and full hop finish, the result was Kapai – which means, it’s all good.

Embracing the 100% kiwiness of our Aotearoa Pale Ale, we have recently renamed this brew as kAPAi, encapsulating the true character of the beer.

Taste: Citrus, grapefruit and herb flavours with a fresh hop finish.
Aroma: Tropical fruits and orange marmalade.
Look: Golden amber to copper.
Hops: Motueka, Pacific Jade, NZ Cascade, Nelson Sauvin
Malt: NZ Lager, NZ Ale, NZ Light Crystal, NZ Medium Crystal

TET (3174) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2017
An orange beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has citrusfruits, also tropical notes of mango, and notes of papaiyas and smoothness. Taste has mangos, citrus, and mix of tropical fruits. The bitterness isn't strong, this is based on more aromatic hops. Medium bodied. Good beer.

Turboninja (822) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2017
[email protected], from Alko Sokos, Tampere, Finland. Refreshing nuances of resin, slightly overaged fruits, distinctive NZ hops that balances sweetish fruits, some malts. Averagely balanced. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, good quality and typical NZ product, though nothing special.

Heerlijk aroma. De smaak begint rond en zacht. De bitterheid, mss iets te scherp, komt pas in de afdronk.
