Motueka has an orange colored body and a creamy, tan head. Retention and lacing are both very good.
The aroma is very fruity without being aggressively hoppy, with a little bit of malt in the background.
I am completely unfamiliar with the hops in this one, but they are certainly very good. They are lightly spicy, but with a lot of fruit character to them. The fruit flavor isn't the typical, aggressive citrus flavor that come from American hops, but rather softer and tropical in nature, with hints of lemon as well. There is also some grass and resin flavors. The malt is understated, which is good, because the hops in this one are not overwhelming.
Soft carbonation, but smooth.
Motueka Single Hop Pale Ale has a very interesting flavor profile considering it only uses one hop, and I like it. This is a well-done pale ale.

Had a 4oz pour from growler into tulip glass
A- Pours a nice light gold, foamy white head. Great lacing.
S-Aromas of passionfruit, citrus,pine.
T-Taste is light. Some melon mends with the pale malts nicely, a bit of pine comes in, but only very subtle.
M- Light-medium in body with fine carbonation.
O-Overall a decent APA hard to compete with Edward.

App- hazy straw yellow body, nice one finger white head, good retention, nice lacing
Smell- Floral, nice breadiness, biscuits. Very floral nose that is quite a bit sharper than any other floral pale ales I've had the chance to try.
Flavour- Favors the malts a bit- bready, honey, caramel- but complemented nicely by a floral flavour typical of the more floral hops. Possibly some lemon zest as well, but rather floral-dominant.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, great carbonation, not super creamy but fairly easy to drink. Not terribly bitter, with a nice floral aftertaste.
Overall- Very interesting floral pale ale, I like how this beer is quite balanced between the floral hoppiness and the bready malts. Still, not something I'd use one of my 3 growler fills for- I'd drink this on tap in Waterbury anytime though.
