Here at Tuatara we understand that your enthusiasm for hops has mutated into a full-blown obsession. We also know that your king hit of the beloved cone often comes with alcohol levels that can turn an evening into a lifetime. ITI (te reo Maori for “small”) is what you're looking for. It's got the New World hop slam you crave from Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo and Cascade, but with a subdued malt background and a very diplomatic 3.3% alcohol. It's the ideal session ale for the unreconstructed hophead. After a solid month of “market testing”, aka we released the 1st batch of ITI on tap in May, we have happily concluded that this little gem is good for bottling… so we have!
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Very good for what it is
Probably the best mid strength I've ever had. Not much body but plenty of flavour and a nice kick of NZ hops.
Pine & tropical fruit nose & upfront flavours. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but right for 3.3%ABV. Bitter finish & linger. Awesome for a mid.
