Hop Butcher For The World Meet the Motuekas – American IPA at 6.5% ABV (C$9.85 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 18-Jan-2022, acquired 10-Mar-2022, reviewed 31-Mar-2022)
Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: zesty citrus, tropical fruit, vanilla, oats & cereal grains, slight black pepper. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: smooth medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration warming finish. (4/5)
Interesting choice for a single-hop, and I don’t think I’ve had Motueka done this way before. The dominant factor seems to be a lime-like zesty citrus, and there’s also an interesting peppery bite at the end. Nice one, but probably not worth the price tag if we’re honest. (16/20)
This will be my 5,237th unique Untappd check-in.
