This is great! Solid IpA with nice fruity undertones
Solid beer - appearance, aroma, mouthfeel, taste, buzz. Love it!
Yummy! Not too sweet but yet can taste the fruit
Walking through a dense pine forest in the morning, when the dawn dew drops have settled and everything feels extra moist, and green, and you can feel a slight squelch as you pad over the mossy undergrowth... Squelch is not a particularly welcome word in most contexts--nor is moist--but at this time of day, the forest is burgeoning with life, and there's simply no more evocative language to describe it. One feels as though everything is alive and dripping with nascent potential. So, you're making your way down the path, boots softly sinking into soil with every step, and a large burlap sack of oranges on your back intended for juicing. The air is so thick with precipitation it starts seeping into the pack, steeping the citrus like a tea bag in a steamy, resinous brew. By the time it comes to pressing, all the zesty bite of orange and tangerine has been overcome with pine needle vapors, leaving only the silky smooth texture to wash it down in a flavor experience like the sound of water perfectly poured from one bucket to another. Don't be in a rush with this one. Step out into nature; find a forest to plod through, in the early morning light. Set no defined pace or purpose; take a journey without worry; stop to gaze, stop to graze; take a lesson from the tortoise.
Creamy Nelson and Lemon Motueka works so well. Gorgeous beer !
Strong citrus aromas. I get a decent amount of lemon, orange-y citrus, and some tropical notes with a pleasant acidity. Finishes with a touch of boozy bitterness that hits the spot. Another banger from New Image.
Delicious beer. Wish I’d bought more!
