Alvarado Street Brewery Riwaka, Baby!
What the brewers say
“Double dry hopped with 100 percent Riwaka hops.”
What our panel thought
“Muted aroma with slight fruity hop notes and a low counterpoint of toasty malt. Flavor has a slight cinnamon note on top of the medium citrus and a malt presence that provides balance. Nice roundness to the mouthfeel. Medium bitterness.”
What our editors thought
“Signature New Zealand hop notes in the nose (tropical blossom, wet fern, passion fruit) with hints of strawberry. Sweetly tensioned in the sip, with a fresh green-fruit character and rind bitterness that pull against the juicier notes.”
