    TrHOPical Paradise NZ XPA Review

    I cast my eyes on this bright, summery beer label at my local Glengarry’s liquor shop and I immediately knew that I’d be drinking Bootleg Brewery’s TrHOPical Paradise NZ XPA tonight.

    I reckon I’ve had about half-a-dozen pints of Emerson’s 1812 Pale Ale… over a period of about five years or so. I’d be way too drunk to write this review if I’d drunk all that beer in one go! Lame jokes aside, it’s fair to say that I’m pretty familiar with the Emerson’s range of […]
