Not only did the Americans invent hot-rodding, they invented hop-rodding too. In the late 1960s a Tauranga teenager called John Reid threw a kiwi hat in the ring with the famed "Vandal", a dazzling green flake 1919 Dodge bucket. In his spirit, we're rising to the other challenge with a beer named in its honour - a big, bitter APA stuffed with the tropical hit of Nelson Sauvin, Kohatu and Riwaka hops. Like any good hotrod, it's built to attract as much attention as possible.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Riwaka hop can be polarising. The other hop varieties are bold enough to tame it here. Big grassy, tart grapefruit flavours and linger.
