Tuatara APA Clone

Back in the day, our US supply of APA hops went up in smoke, literally. So rather than inciting a riot, we turned to some home-grown cones as a temporary fix. This unwittingly resulted in the evolution of Tuatara's Aotearoa Pale Ale. One to rival its American counterpart. With citrus flavours and full hop finish, the result was kapai!
