2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown body, short tan head. Overall, very faint aroma but it does have a weak kiwi aroma to it. Taste is bitter but not vey much, pretty weak for an ipa. Soft mouthfeel, little carbonation. Mediocre but wouldn’t try again.

Pours a cloudy amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus, some caramel and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a hoppy finish. Nice.

On tap at CBM Jimbocho. Big fruit aromas: grapefruit, papaya and passion fruit. Light body. Taste is more of the same with orange zest and a slight hint of clove and malt in the background. Crisp and dry. Super refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a plastic cup @ Japan Brewers Cup Festival 2014. Looks pale, a bit hazy. Aroma is not too strong but reveals some oily and pine-needle character, hinting a hoppy brew. Taste is bitter as it should be - but remains perhaps a bit watery. Aftertaste is long, bitter and enjoyable. Some sweetness in the body, has some passionfruit aromas and taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Tadg’s. Some good stink, (and maybe some diacetyl?) Honey color. Sourish fruit, dates beyond their date, almond/cyanide / mid goes to a light fruitiness / finish is balanced and then the hopping goes on and on. Medium body. Rock ’n roll. The NZ hops really carry this one through.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 Lovely fresh kiwi hops nose. Rich peach/grape/tropical fruitiness, caramel malt, strong hoppy bitter finish. Delicious kiwi hop IPA experience, the bitter/fruity combo is quite refreshing.
