Eddyline Happy Camper APA
We might be getting into the shoulder season, but this outdoorsy Nelson-brewed Happy Camper APA is here to embrace the last breath of summer. Citra, Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin drive a superbly sharp lemon citrus dominant nose, with some tropical fruit and funky gooseberry in support. The palate is brisk and breezy, and at only 5 per cent ABV, this strikes a great balance between fresh hop fruitiness, a clean malt body and tight bitterness. A crisp, fruity and exceptionally fresh APA that lands a bullseye on its target style.
