The first of a new series of special releases celebrating some of the radical rods close to Panhead’s heart. Classic Nelson Sauvin nose of gooseberry and crushed blackcurrant leaf, with some grapefruit citrus around the edges. Impeccably tangy and juicy on the tongue. Lemon and lime citrus, moving into passionfruit and bitter grapefruit towards the end of the palate. A solid example of a full strength NZ-hopped IPA with plenty of grunt. For anyone curious, there’s even a little doco about the restored vehicle that gives this beer its name. You can watch that here.
