Deep Creek Redwood APA
What to expect:
Zesty grapefruit, grass, hint of delicious pungency
Based in Silverdale north of Auckland, Deep Creek are consistent high achievers here. This core range six-pack pale ale is the perfect fridge filler and the ultimate burger-beer. The judges loved the assertive hop-forward approach – the beer coming at you with an all-American flavour stamp of zesty grapefruit, grass and a hint of delicious pungency. Clean, vibrant and with a subtle sweetness, the malt plays a just-right support role for the hops that deliver a building bitterness that the judges described as “assertive but pleasant”. They capped their assessment by saying it’s a beer they’d “happily buy” – what other recommendation do you need?

This fridge filler is there for Saturday nights in front of the rugby with a lovely cheese toastie or a slice of pizza.
