The hops are always greener on the other side, in this case the other side of Cook Strait. There's only one way to get those cones to the North Island in prime condition and that's to scramble the jets. OK, it's to scramble a single engine prop plane with the seats taken out, but be assured that the 800kg of green hops that went into Conehead 2015 were flown direct from Nelson to Paraparaumu in an actual plane, touching down right next door to the Tuatara Brewery. One short hop for a brewer, one giant green-hopping for mankind.
Style: Green-hopped IPA. Taste: Enjoy vibrant notes of passionfruit, gooseberry and grapefruit that only the freshest Sauvin hops can provide. Look: Golden Pale Ale. Aroma: Tropical fruits, passionfruit, gooseberry, mango and spicy grapefruit.
