Pours very cloudy orange. Medium, very stable, fairly creamy white head. Scent is orangre, tad woody (by the hops) , Medium intensity for the style, lower in general. Taste is juicy, full creamy hoppyness. Fairly woody, resinous, but not overly so. It also has quite a bit of fruity character (orange, citrus) and a more complex sub-aroma ( typical for those NZ style hops) reminding of grapes an other milder fruits. Medium creamy body ( so very creamy for a NA ) medium low bitterness. Very pleasant !
