As you’d expect from a New Zealand hop variety, Kohatu contributes bags of tropical fruit, but with loads of lime notes, & pineapple hits.

Léger, peu de goût, comparé à une "grosse I IPA".Fruité, léger, sympa mais je pense qu’il y a mieux.A mixer avec une "Singel HOP IPA" de chez Brewdog plus "racée".Ma première impression se confirme donc. Bon, c’est bon quand même.

Pretty great IPA, but as well as other single hops, the taste is not as well balanced as the aroma is beautiful. Ok balanced body, and refreshing, but the taste lacks complexity.

Bottle at another tasting. Hazy gold pour with white head. Aroma is grassy, light coriander, light lemon notes, vaguely reminiscent of Indian food. Taste is nice and fruity, nice tropical fruit. Good

Bottle @ Another Tasting, courtesy of me. Pours a slightly hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is very herbal, vegetables, light piney. Flavor is very light, subtle fruits going on. Aftertaste is short, medium bitter, very grassy and decent hop characters going on here! Good stuff!

Jaha, det låter kanske lite stelt och tråkigt men det här var precis vad jag väntade mig av Brew Dog, det var absolut inte dåligt men inte heller någon större överraskning. Ölen var väldigt fruktig och humlig med toner av tropiska frukter och lakrits, kroppen var stabil men balansen satt inte helt på plats.
