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.

CacheManyHose (447) - 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 (515) - 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.

ineedbeer (1369) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle dated 10/30/2014. Aroma has a moderate pilsner grain malt and bread note. Moderate tropical fruit, mostly pineapple and mango with moderate citrus notes of orange and tangerine. A hint of a grassy hop note. Pours a very cloudy, pale golden straw color with a large, fairly thick, slightly off white head with good retention. High amounts of lacing. Flavor has a light sweetness with medium light grain and bread notes. High bitterness with a hint of alcohol spice. Moderately strong citrus notes of mandarin, tangerine and orange with lighter grapefruit. Medium light tropical fruit notes of mango and pineapple along with some melon. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice beer. Not sure its crisp and dry enough to really stand out as a lager in my mind, but nice nonetheless. Lots of hop character and bitterness, but I do wonder if it was different when fresher.

lefossoyeur (516) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
Pours a hazy blonde with a generous white head, lasting a good while, leaving a nice lace. Loads of Berry aromas with white grapes à long with something minty. Medium body, smooth carbonation, tons of kiwi hops shining with Nelson heading the way. Nice drinkability with good bitterness. Very good.
