The premise of this IPA is that it is brewed with fresh fall harvest hops from the southern hemisphere, specifically, from New Zealand. It’s released in April, having been brewed within a week of of the hops having been picked in New Zealand. Hops are the focus, and that shines through in the beer. The aroma is nutmeg and pine, and the middle is resiny with lemony zest. The bitterness is concentrated in the finish. This is another really great beer for west coast style IPA fans.
