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.

TEJA (1285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2014
4Pack with different singel hop version from systembolaget. Short light grey head over a opaque golden beer. Strange vegetable aroma that lacks freshness. Sweet malty taste with mellow hop taste and low bitterness for an Ipa. Medium body and probably the least appealing in the single hop serie.

BeerSkull (1286) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2014
(Bottle). Interesting fragrance with many aromas; sweet caramel, malt, over ripe tropical fruits, figs, tobacco, horse stables and crisp hops. Peppery taste of crisp hops and orange peel mixed with the taste of lightly over-ripe tropical fruits. Dry and rough bitterness in the finish. Taste i a bit unbalanced.

veceo (476) - CROATIA - AUG 24, 2014
Clear orange color, thin white head. Medium body, soft carbonation. Aroma of tropical fruits, orange, malt. Very fruity and refreshing. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. My favorite of the four.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, batch# 064, BB 11/03/2015. Ambrée claire, col épais crémeux beige. Arôme est fruité, léger tropical avec cette impression de fruité fermenté, aiguille de pin, malté modéré. Palais est fruité, note de citron vert, tropical sur une amertume plaisante, pointe de résineux et pin, impression tropicale rappelant le frisco orange. Base malté reste correcte avec des notes pâles et caramel.

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle, 7.2%. Dusty grapefruity aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is sweetish and perfumy with a spicy hop bite. Chalky vanilla aftertaste. Isotonic feel.

Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, with round, fruity notes and touches of grass. Sweetish flavour of malt and fruit, with bitter notes of hops, spreading evenly over the mouth. Bitter and fruity aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence. Okay.

Gaultier (295) - SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2014

Lilja (1585) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, honung, mango, citrus, smörkola med toner av övermogen ananas. Stor fruktighet men sötman tar över och lämnar ett stort brusande hål efter sig i kroppen.
