Tuatara Hop Head Heaven American Pale Ale, New Zealand $8.99 / 500ml
Here’s one for the hop heads (of which I’m one!). It is very, very hoppy and very bitter, and served very cold, it’s a peerless refresher. The aroma is perfumed and floral, the taste a veritable slap in the face. And I like that. A clean, stylish beer. 5.8 per cent alcohol.
