Looks super clean, amber colored, similar to regular SNPA in appearance. Aroma was good, says motueka and Southern Cross, not the most aromatic compared with mosaic and nelson from down south, but more or less pungent than those, reminds me of some of those day old lawn clippings.

Taste comes off more like summerfest kind of hops, lemon and bitterness. This seems to be the most summer-esque kind of harvest ale, lighter in body and hops for the most part than the other ones.

Smooth and citrusy, without the outrageous hop bitterness some of the IPAs possess. Amber with average off white head, light hop aroma, taste is hops, but not so much as to impede the malts from coming through. Very well done.
