Bursting with flavour, this vibrant red IPA combines tropical hops with a Maori kick. A salute to the blossoming New Zealand beer scene, and in tribute of their national tree, the Kahika, with its distinctive red blossom. Big nose and flavour, coming through more tropical and floral than an orangey citrusy punch like you would get with American hops. Despite being a red beer, there is not a lot of contribution from the malt, and not overly bitter to balance the very fresh hop character and it has a nice dry finish.
