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..

Aromas of pineapple. Pineapple and light fruity taste. Good bitterness that fills the mouth a long time. Not so impressive but still a really good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

adasko (323) - Poznan, POLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Has a sweet hoppy aroma with delicate malty note. It’s amber color, a bit hazy, with rather poor head which drops very quickly. In taste it’s a bit alcoholic unfortunately. But except that it has sweet fruity notes which is countered by the bitterness. The bitterness itself is rather small, leaves delicate aftertaste. In overall it’s an awesome beer, but a bit more like Imperial IPA than just IPA.

Sad24 (96) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Personal taste I guess, but not hoppy, citrusy or floral enough for me. More of a bitter taste than you get from most ipas

MarkoNm (531) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 4, 2014
Pours a clear orangey color, topped with decent just off-white head. A pleasant malty aroma, some caramel and biscuity notes. The taste is on the bittery side, with some sweetness and caramel notes in the aftertaste. A bit different than others, but very nice.

mzaar (1606) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2014
Flaska. Dimmigt guldfärgad öl med medelstort vitt skum. I både smak och doft finns en ton av grönsaker som lägger sig som ett lock över andra smaker och dofter. Framför allt i det förra. Karamell, gräs och apelsin hittas dock med visst besvär. Oljig munkänsla.

Fin (7409) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Had this in bottle at End of The Road Festival, picked it up from Brewdog online shop. Thursday 28th August 2014 Pours warm gold witj a filmy white head. A rather disappointing IPA that has far too much of a crystal malty and toffee flavour. Soft in the mouth, too sweet, not that crisp or hoppy, a flabby IPA. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
