Hops: Ahtanum, Centennial, Citra, Amarillo
Strength: 6% ABV
Bitterness: 65 IBUs
Colour/appearance: pours a pale gold colour, with lovely white head. Medium carbonation.
Aroma: lots of hops! It’s a hop bomb with citrus and floral characters, particularly grapefruit at the fore, with hints of lime, melon and lychees.
Flavour: hoppy fruit with a biscuity malt body.
Aftertaste: rounded bitterness that cleanses the palate with a lingering sweetness from the single malt, preparing the palate for the next sip.
Food pairings: This single malt ale goes with grilled fish, barbecued chicken and prawns. Put that barbecued chicken on a pizza and it’s heaven in a slice. Also good with smoked duck.
