I must say.... the Hopwired IPA is right up my alley. Great hoppiness. I actually quite impressed. It even reminds me a little bit of my beloved Hop Zombie. I think it will a reasonable substitute.
The bottle says that is unique in its New Zealandness... "We're pretty sure HopWired is the first bottled new world India Pale Ale made with NZ grown pale ale malt and 100% unique NZ hops. We bet you'll find nothing else like it on the shelves."
Worth a try for that alone.
