Tasting Note: This is our take on what has become the craft beer standard, an all New Zealand hop Pale Ale. Using our great Gisborne water and a malting regime to develop a good stiff backbone we have added a nine stage hopping regime for a layered and complex hop hit, without losing balance and drinkability through excessive alcohol and bitterness. The palate is smooth and creamy with a good lashing of peppery hop character to give a clean and long finish. Probably longer then the beer lasts inside your glass, because this pale ale is hard to drink slowly.
