The coriolis effect is affecting me.

Cost adjusted grade: A
Grade: A
Cost: 4.99 for a 24 oz bottle.

What do you taste? Delicious hoppy goodness.

Label Stuff: This ale marks our journey to the only place on the planet where fresh hops are harvested in our spring, the Southern Hemisphere. Our task was daunting - we needed to get the hops picked, dried, flown halfway across the world and into our brew kettle in a little over a week's time. (I don't know that I would call that daunting. Challenging, yes. Going to the moon is daunting.)

The result is a North by South fusion of fresh New Zealand hops blended with the finest North American malts. Its robust hop character presents an intriguing floral citrus aroma leading to layers of fresh hop spiciness. Enjoy! (Don't worry, I am.)
