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.

Not so fond of this IPA is dead series. Aroma is nice, piney, tropical and caramel. The taste is for me quite out of balance, its as if alcohol, malts and hops are just there one next to another, instead of being complimentary to eachother. There’s an fulsome taste to it which is a bit too excessif for me.. Maybe i’ve drank too many brewdogs lately..

nihtila (1016) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
20.4.2014. Clear pale colour, almost no head. By memory the aroma is most different from the others in the series. It reminds of some alcohol and flowers. Taste has some sweetness, almost like bubblegum, also more common pine bitterness, fruitcake, lime. Easy to drink but a bit boring.

CanCrusher (718) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy copper colour, small, off-white, creamy head, excellent lacing and no visible carbonation. Hoppy aroma of plum brandy reminds me of Schneiderweisse Tap 5 - Meine Hopfenweisse, one of my favourite German beers. There is some piney aroma, too. Light bitter taste with plum brandy note (again). Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. This one is my favourite in Ipa is dead series.

rayaron (484) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom’s place. Thanks Shumpi. Hazy golden with small off-white head. The aroma is hoppy, a bit stale with notes of honey, herbs and onion. Sweet honey flavor, medium hoppy bitterness, notes of herbs and caramel, citrus peels, notes of onion and quite malty. Moderate carbonation, medium-bodied.

pastymc (16) - Niscemi, ITALY - FEB 12, 2015
Bottiglia da 33cl Color miele, molto torbida. Schiuma praticamente inesistente. Il luppolo spicca all’olfatto, con le sue note floreali ed erbacee, con punte di malto. In bocca il luppolo si sposa bene con le note maltate, per una buona rotondità e struttua complessiva, anche se manca sostanzialmente di complessità. L’amaro del Kohatu rende secco e gradevole il finale, il che rende la birra piuttosto beverina. Carbonazione vivace, corpo medio. Da Brew Dog ci si aspetta di più; come per il resto della serie IPA IS DEAD, la birra si presenta piatta nel complesso.

Tognetta (144) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 11, 2015
Aroma um pouco "aguado" mas também levemente adocicado, lembra mascavo. Espuma rala, desaparece rápido, mesmo servindo de maneira a criar mais espuma. Paladar caramelizado, tendendo para o amargor do lúpulo ao final. É a IPA menos impactante da serie "IPA is Dead", mas ao mesmo tempo muito bem balanceada, fácil de beber.

Ostatnie z serii IPA is Dead. Jak na BrewDoga przystało, próżno szukać wad w tym piwie. Wygląda idealnie z swoim kolorem i pianą, pachnie również świetnie - świeżo, żywicznie, wyczułem cytrusy i mango. Po spróbowaniu natomiast uderzyła mnie dość niska goryczka i brak nut, które poczułem zanurzając nos w tulipie. Oprócz tego bardziej niż w poprzednich single hopach poczułem alkohol. Nie przeszkadzało mi to, ale było zauważalne! Ogólnie - to wciąż bardzo dobre piwo i niezmiennie wysoki poziom BrewDoga! Jestem również za wszelkimi eksperymentami, których Szkoci się podejmują! IPA is Not Dead!!
