Eminence New Zealand IPA 7.2%
Growler picked up from the brewery, enjoyed @
1 day old. Pours hazy but not opaque burnt orange with some yellow highlights. Fluffiest head you've ever seen. This is a great start. Putting a nose to it, I get effervescent bright citrus fruits. Starfruit, lemon, and tangerine are there. There are kiwi, white grape and white wine flavours which I believe are from the nelson hops. Dryness on the finish with a subtle hoppyness that finished quite clean. A very drinkable beer with not much malt sweetness, medium body to it. I think I could have done with a bit bigger mouthfeel, but really nothing to complain about at all. Hops are front and center. This was a very nice beer, at quite a high price. Something to enjoy only on occasion for me. I can forgive them, because this is a part time gig for Barncat as I understand it.
