The first one-off beer in our cask session series.
An all New Zealand hopped pale ale brewed with Wai-iti and Orbit.
Wai-iti hops provide wonderfully fruity characteristics of citrus and stone fruit such as fresh peach and ripe apricot.
Orbit is the name of a blend of hops specially selected from the New Zealand “Hops with a Difference” breeding program. These hops are selected on their unique aroma and flavour characteristics as well as their brewing quality. The hops may be grown in very small plots at the New Zealand Plant and Food Research Centre in Riwaka or in larger selected trial gardens across the region. No two years are the same and we'll never get this blend of hops again.
