Pale straw yellow and a wallop of New Zealand hops is my short hand description. This beer has a gorgeous nose of citrus, bubblegum and love. It's a nose that a lot of these kiwi hopped beers have been chasing, but few have achieved. The taste is similar. If this beer had the back bone of Nelson, it would be a force to be reckoned with. Alas it doesn't, which is the only area it falls slightly behind.

That being said,I could crush cans of this in the California sunshine...and allegedly will get to come June.

Goldenroad's Drakesification has been a huuuge win for the home team

Trying the Golden Road Heal the Bay at Yards in Long Beach. It poured a clear yellow with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is floral with hints of pine and citrus. The taste is also floral with touches of mint and citrus peel. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer and certainly worth a try.
