Pour out of bottle, thanks Levi! Hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of cat pee, hints of stone fruits, peach, some slight grapefruit into some spice, piney notes in there, touch of biscuit. Taste is a mix of cat pee, grapefruit, some slight orange into pine, spice, hints of biscuit, bread, finishing fairly bitter.

Bottle pourer a hazy golden orange, three finget head. Smell was floral, citrusy lemon peel.
Taste had a burst of intense hoppiness, followed by a sweet malt fruit character. Really well balanced beer

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out a slightly hazy yellow/orange with a huge tan head, nice to look at in a tulip glass. Amazing juicy citrus notes, some floral scents and a bit of alcohol to the aroma. Taste follows the aroma, but some dank weedy notes creep into the flavor. Sweet malt provides a clean backing and contrasts with the alcohol. Great mouthfeel, thick and sticky with a little alcohol heat. Really tasty fall beer, $5 for a 16 oz bottle. I think I prefer Mass Rising a little bit more, and it’s available more often.

Clear straw yellow color. Dense white head with small bubbles. Nice floral notes in aroma. Coriander maybe. Taste is nice and malty considering the strong hoppy smells.

Bottle. Aroma is tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, and warm bread. Appearance is bright gold with excellent clarity. Dense with head and nice lacing. Taste is passion fruit, pineapple, papaya, straw, and some grassy notes. Medium light body, clean finish. Overall very enjoyable and an interesting style.

Big citrus aroma and flavor. I really liked it. A lot of good hop flavors and very drinkable. Definitely good use of the kiwi.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: thanks, Chris! Golden, mostly clear body (looked filtered) with a big, voluptuous white foam capping it off. Aroma is mostly full of fruity, citric hops with oranges, citrus, & grapefruit abound. Not sure if these hops are supposed to smell like actual kiwis, but I don’t get much kiwi smell. Grass, leaves, some lighter pine notes. Taste is crisp with a big citrus peel presence, among other notes of grapefruit, tangerine, & maybe pineapple. Sharp with big leafy pine notes. Nice bready malt backbone & a crisp, super clean finish thanks to the yeast. Very well attenuated. I thought this beer was really good, though it didn’t quite meet the large expectations I had for it (I much preferred Hoponius Union).

Bottle thanks to BroBoostIPA. Pours super hazy gold with a persistent half-inch of white head. Super grainy/biscuity aroma. Taste is biscuit, cracker, juicy fruit, citrus. Some apple and cherry notes. Real thick mouthfeel. Real easy drinking for a fairly high-boost brew.
