COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal; Autumn - Released in November.
This is an intensely hoppy and strong lager that we refer to as a Double India Pale Lager. Over four pounds of hops per BBL of New Zealand hops (Kiwi Hops) were used in progressively larger hop additions throughout the brewing process. Four kettle hop additions, whole leaf hops in the hop back, and multiple dry hop additions infuse an intense floral and citrusy aroma. No kiwifruit or kiwi birds were used in the production of this beer.

SlovakSniper (4378) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Une robe dorée et sa mousse petite mais intéressante pour mon œil. Des parfums concentrés de fruits comme une salade exotique arrosée par un sirop légèrement mielleux. Au goût, la base maltée est double tandis que les cultivars apportent un réconfort fruité, gazonné et floral. En bouche, le liquide est plutôt rond, pétillant et huileux. La finale est modérément amère, très fruitée comme une bière qui exploite ses houblons de glorieuse façon.

AlainG (1740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2015
Une bière dorée ayant une mousse baveuse qui laisse des traces communes. Un nez houblonné et fruité; particulièrement pas l’ananas cuit, chauffé avec des élans sucrés. Le goût et aussi fruité, il est crémeux et on a l’impression de dessert, de gâteau, de sucre et fruits confits. L’effervescence aide au transport du liquide, la rendant facile à boire. (1672-031215)

Strong citrus and hop aromas, golden with a nice cloudiness to it. Strong hops at the front, with citrus after taste and a bit of alcohol note to the finish

CacheManyHose (500) - HONG KONG - FEB 27, 2015
Cloudy straw-coloured, sudsy white head, streaky legs. Smells of very dry resinous hop, yeast, dry grass, lightly herbal pine needles, pepper, orange peel, guava, lemon. Tastes of deeply bitter piney hop, resin, light pepper, grapefruit, tangerine. Body is medium, very smooth, fluffy finish - palate is heavier than expected for a lager and very nice. Excellent, especially as it warms up.

HKdIPA (568) - HONG KONG - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Slightly translucent straw yellow pour with thin dense head. Color is almost like pee. Aroma is unusual - first very straight lager aroma, then lots of fruity hops. Not used to the combination. Taste is good. Big bitter/tartness and fruity floral hops. Deep resinous hops at the end with malt and booze that lasts. Palate is richer than I expected but not syrupy, but retains a little bit of lager crispness. Really good.

Draft. Glowing hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is floral with bready malt. Taste follows and adds a hint of tangerine. Thinnish crisp mouthfeel. Very good.
