COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking the Orient and the rest of the world by storm, Krunkles returns! In this edition of the bearded IPA brewer’s saga, “Samurai Krunkles,” as he was once known in the Far East, pulls out all the hops from his katana’s sheath to make this Asian flared brew. While traveling around the Pacific in a souped up rickshaw pulled by his trusty side kick Cato, Krunkles uncovered unique brewing ingredients such as jasmine rice, jasmine green tea and the finest ginger the Orient had to offer for this Samurai master’s ale. ABV: 7.1% IBU’s: 70 O.G.: 6.5 Malt: 2-Row, Best Munich, Victory, Pale Crystal Hops: Columbus, Nugget, Falconers Flight, Zythos, Sorachi Ace Other: Green Tea, Jasmine Rice, Ginger, Dextrose

Love the experimentation from Terraping, but this was was not a homerun like Indiana Krunkles was for me. Poured an amber with nice fluffy white head. Smell is floral, light citrus and touches of sweet honey. Taste was light and effervesant, but certainly a strange mix. Mild citrus hops, ginger, green tea, some earthiness, hints of soap, jasmine. The green tea lingering and I believe the ginger sting and the Sorachi Ace poking thru are the highlights. Overall, worth the try for something completely different and in the end pretty refreshing.

22oz bottle ---> snifter. Pours a pretty, deep orange with very little head. Smell is bubblegum with a tiny bit of florals. Heavy green tea taste with very mild hop on the back end. Palate is pretty watery with a tongue burn which I suspect is the ginger. One thing I will say is that you could probably pound these things, they are that mild. Another swing and miss by Terrapin.

Subtle flavors and aromas. Clear golden color. Some honey and floral aromas. Flavor has a lot of honey and a decent sweetness. Herbal floral hop flavors with a bit of spice on the finish. Not a typical ipa but an entertaining drink nonetheless

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottled poured into snifter. Nice aroma that improved as it warmed. Hints of honey, floral hops, jasmine, and a nice, late note of jasmine laced green tea. Great looking beer, appealing golden color with an ample, constant head. Taste was hoppy with a nice sticky finish highlighted by jasmine again. Don’t really detect the green tea in the taste. Good, refreshing warm weather beer. Unique.

Cybercat (3222) - Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Malty aroma has a firm hoppy overtone plus hints of ginger and - must be jasmine. Pours a bubble, coppery amber with a fairly thick and fluffy ivory white head that hangs around. Flavor is rather hoppy, woody rather than evergreen, only slightly bitter, with hints of malt, ginger, jasmine and green tea. Distinctive and most enjoyable! Firm-bodied texture has good fizz and life, leaving a woody finish that has a hint of ginger. Say - ginger and green tea are supposed to be good for you, ergo, this is Health Beer! ;)

Strong tea aroma (of course). Little to no head. Tea compliments hop flavor. Could use a little more bubby.

bottle. yet another one in the weird ’krunkles’ saga. this guy pours a clear orange. pleasant nose of flowers and tropical melons. flavors of rice pudding, floral jasmine, vanilla, dove soap. medium body and lighly syrupy. i think this beer came out pretty good. i get a little kick of ginger in the finish sometimes.

Draft at world of beer into a terrapin glass Pours copper with a decent white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is citrus forward with a lot of orange and some pine behind. Taste its medium bitter with a lot of sweetness.

This one was a lighter IPA that boasts very interesting flavors, but I don’t think the flavors were pronounced enough for me to really enjoy.
