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

BONZAI!!! The aroma is fairly weak but smells sweet and spicy. It pours a cloudy orange. It has a spicy hoppiness, some citrus tang, and a sweet finish. It's very smooth on the palate. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy orange, thin white head. Nose is sweet honey and ginger, berry, light caramel, alcohol. Flavor is ginger, vanilla/oak, coconut, lime. Really interesting.

Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Smells a little hoppy, a little green tea, and a little ginger. Taste is green tea, ginger, and a little bitter. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Terrapin Side Project Samurai Krunkles finishes with a subtle tea-like bitterness.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2013
22oz bottle: pours a slightly hazy deep golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some floral perfumy hop notes and a touch of green tea. Starts with pretty good fullness and light effervescence with a mild pale sweetness and good resiny hop flavor before a drier bittersweet finish. Has some unique characteristics while maintaining good drinkability and balance.

decaturstevo (5300) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Lightly hazed almost orange pour with light white head. Aroma is orange zest and light bread/cracker. Zest, light funky maltiness, and a good bitter finish. A very odd/good after taste clings on the back of the tongue. Smooth full/medium body with good carbonation. A nice break from the norm.

FatWater (20) - Martinez, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Tasty IPA. Aroma of light fruits and berries. Golden and cloudy in color with a decent head. Tastes of hops and berries, with an almost cool, minty, crisp finish. Very light and drinkable on the palate. Overall a very good brew!

glennmastrange (2359) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle. Light to moderate malt and hop notes of grain, flowers and herbs, light dough for the yeast, and a hint of peach in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is hazy amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate medium, watery with a lively carbonation. A tasty beer, but I’m not really getting IPA out of this, and I noticed no ginger and it was a reach to find green tea.
