Growler straight from the Brewery. Speaking to Tim, the brewer, he advised that it is an all-Motueka Pale Ale. Slightly maltier than the house style and designed to be a little more balanced than what he is famous for.
Pours a very hazy golden colour. There is clearly no filtering going on and the head is small but tight and a nice off-white colour.
Balanced. Slightly sweet malt with the fruity, tropical aroma of Motueka hops coming through clearly. Almost a little earthy.
Malty sweetness and a touch earthy. Some nice fruity character and even a touch of yeast character.
Medium body with moderately-low carbonation. Good.
A solid beer. I do like the difference from the house style but I'd like it just a touch drier to help accentuate a little of the hop flavour. The bitterness is fine at 35IBUs but if it popper just a little it would be a big help.
