What the brewers say

“Dry-hopped with Motueka, Mosaic, Strata, Motueka Hop Kief.”

What our panel thought

“Myrcene and pine sap, followed by pineapple, lime, and a touch of orange-blossom sweetness. The flavor carries that forward with more emphasis on the floral-citrus side. The aftertaste lingers on with a highlight of lime. Focused, but not one-note. Some sweetness carries through to the finish.”

What our editors thought

“Brilliant yellow color with a rocky white head. Fresh floral notes bounce among light peach, mango, passion fruit in the aroma with a bright cohesion. Bold passion fruit and guava in the flavor, with a beautifully balanced tropical bitterness that scrubs quickly into a lingering cool tropical-fruit tone. Vibrant without overdoing the intensity. Rides the delicate line of drinkability with aplomb.”
