This one right here! Galaxy, Motueka, Wai-iti, and Falconer’s Flight, a bit of oats in the grist… Big lime pith and tropical fruit, creamy body, balanced lingering bitterness. One of our favorite new hoppy offerings.

Poured into a snifter. Beautiful beer - very hazy yellow acorn color with a large and fluffy white head. The foam only reluctantly settled leaving a nice covering over the beer. Lots of tropical fruit on the nose: mainly papaya (seriously), tangerine, and pineapple. Not much in terms of malt of earthy aroma. Not surprisingly, juicy and fruity flavors were up front on the first taste. Mixed in were somewhat muted earthy and resiny notes and a nice bready malt backbone. This was bitter like an old school IPA, especially on the finish. Clean and not harsh. A soft feel with moderate carbonation. Overall an outstanding beer - a bit of a hybrid IPA.

Pours an opaque medium orange with a very well retained one inch white head that left webs of lacing. Smells of tropical and citrus fruits with a slight earthy quality. Taste starts out grapefruit and grapefruit pith but very quickly changes as it warms slightly to orange, orange pith, lime, peach, pineapple and a subtle malt presence. Finishes slightly bitter. Smooth and creamy mouth feel, medium carbonation, medium to heavy bodied for the style.
