"2-3 years ago, they created the NZ Styles to suit, and it seemed to work really well. the issue I have with not defining the NZ v US hops, is the Citrus vs Tropical Fruit Descriptor. Then when you add in the "I'm new to brewing, but my NZ…"

"that would make sense reading their FAQ they say its up to the brewer to decide which is a bit of a cop out"

"Yeah would be great if the NZ0 categories were brought back - it's always a bit tricky trying to shoehorn an NZ Pils into the BJCP guides. Finney has a link here of the NZ style guidelines which were developed to match the BJCP…"
