There's a pile of clichés we won't deploy here attesting to the fact that you can never take anything in this world for granted. Sure enough, just as Tuatara's beloved American Pale Ale looked like getting bigger than Texas, our supply of the mighty American hops that defined it started to go wobbly on us. Undeterred, we set to crafting a local solution. Aotearoa Pale Ale takes the spirit of the old APA and reanimates it with a hopping regime that's as kiwi as a 25 year mortgage. The same-but-different local recipe (Pacific Jade, Cascade, Sauvin and Wai-iti for all you trainspotters) is well within the remit of the original APA, but with a deep, long, new age flavour profile.

Citrus and grassy nose and front. Tart grapefruit flavours with bitter finish and melon linger from those tasty Kiwi hops.
