Cask & Cold Filtered Bottle; Regular.
Typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine, this wonderful South Pacific Ale has a great grassy nose with kiwi fruits in abundance. The wonderful fruity mouth gives way to a great bitter finish. 5.2%

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 Bright clear golden. Tropical hop nose. Grassy, tropical, melon taste. Light body, nice malt profile. Hops not to big or complex but good. Always like Thornbridge.

Don’t know if i’d put this in American pale. Pours light golden with white foamy head. There is some grassiness/fruitiness. Also some graininess. Definitely some hops there, not overwhelming. Basically a nice refreshing patio beer.

Sempre piacevole, la Kipling da la certezza di una buona bevuta. L’aroma leggermente fruttato è intrigante quanto il gusto amaro, con note di frutta estiva e sottili note resinose ed erbacee. Finale secco e decisamente amaro. Forse il tutto risulta piuttosto leggero al primo impatto, ma questa signorina sa farsi amare.

All the descriptions are true, but I suppose the taste was very light compared to my expectations. A nice floral and citrus nose off the pillowy white head. The color is cloudy yellow to orange which is extremely appetizing. The taste falls short however to such a nice beginning.
