When a hops shortage in the United States left Tuatara without the ingredients for its stellar American Pale Ale, it did what any ingenious Kiwi would do: look around, and figure out a solution from what is already there. This West Coast-style pale ale is made with local Pacific Jade, Cascade, Wai-iti and Nelson Sauvin hops, and it's big and hoppy, with lots of citrus flavors on the front. It isn't overpowering, but it is full of flavor. If you love pale ales, you need to try this beer, named after the Maori word for New Zealand.
