In the 1970s, American microbrewers reinvigorated IPA and spurred an ongoing obsession. The overt floral and grapefruit notes of the Cascade hop made the world take notice. We’ve used it here, together with the pine-resin character of other classic U.S. varieties, to salute the old school.

The ‘Wood Rose’ — actually a distorted root — is often the sole sign of Dactylanthus, a parasitic plant which spurns the sun and siphons energy out from under its host. But this Pua O Te Reinga, the flower of the underworld, does bloom: clustered onto stalks that creep up into the light, tens of thousands of tiny florets briefly pepper the forest floor each year.
