Released as part of 2014 IPA is Dead selection
As you’d expect from a New Zealand hop variety, Kohatu contributes bags of tropical fruit, but with loads of lime notes, & pineapple hits.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo enjoyed at home
Pours dark copper with a red tone, very hazy, creamy beige head with wonderful lacings. Probably the best looking of this series. Smell of tropical fruits, hints of weak pine, lime, earthy aromas and some mango. Moderate sweet, earthy flavors, tropical fruits and lime peel, hints of tea and pineapple in the back. Moderate bitter finish. A bit weak on the bitterness, but still good

gwizdek1990 (63) - POLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Barwa miodowa, złota, wyraźnie zmętnione. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, obfita, ładnie i gęsto zdobi szkło. Aromat bardzo interesujący. Bardzo dojrzałe owoce (ananas, troszkę malin), lekko słodowe i minimalnie żywiczne, sosnowe. W smaku jasne słody, chmiel, znów lekko owocowe. Goryczka typowo chmielowa, bez nut alkoholowych. Słaba, ukryta, pojawia się chwile po łyku ale nie trwa długo. Średnio wysycone.

33cl bottle. Pours clear amber with thin off-white head. Malty aroma, some fruits thrown in. Medium carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet, malty with fruity notes. Medium bitterness going into quite short aftertaste with alcohol backdrop. Interesting single-hop and well-made.

Vighals (1484) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
Gylden klar brun med høyt offwhite skum. Grapefrukt, sitrusskall og lett karamellukt. Mye fruksødme i denne, sydhavsfrukter men en fin mild bitter avslutning. Medium kullsyre.

Cunningham (4996) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
Appearance: Hazy golden color with a fine white head. Ok lacing.
Aroma: Malty, candy, hoppy and fruity.
Palate: Medium + body. A bit sweet that the bitterness did not follow up. Average carbonation.
Taste: Sweet malty, unusual citric hoppy and tropical fruity.
Overall impression: Funny to tatse this hop series. And I know now that Kohatu is not my favourite hop.
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo, Norway
