Tuatara Brewing Company
Country: New Zealand
Brewery: Tuatara Brewing Company
Style: American Pale Ale
Format: 500ml Bottle
NUI (te reo Maori for "big") takes Tuatara's beloved American Pale Ale and reshapes it into a more assertive beast. We've spiced things up with some serious New World hop porn in the form of Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo, delivering 80 IBU of palate-stripping bitterness. And to showcase the aromatic action, Nui swaggers about on a beefed-up malt base that lifts the alcohol to 7.0%. Frailer souls will blanch at the thought of having their taste buds assaulted in this manner, but the rest of us will love Nui big time. Enjoy it in moderation or tag team it with ITI for a refined night out.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Pine resin nose. Big bitter front with hop burn through to long lingering earthy pine and grapefruit finish. This one has some bite!
