COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal; Autumn - Released in November.
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.

Medium sweet flavor with pale and bready malts, grass, lime. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Modest warmth to finish with sticky pine, light pee and melon. Very solid beer. I love what Jack is up to.

mcberko (16954) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
500mL bottle, sent from Gregg657 (thanks a lot, Pete), pours a hazy golden with a large foamy white head. Aroma brings out dry fruity kiwis, loads of piney hops, and grapefruit rind - what a beautifully subtle nose this has to it. Flavour is just as wonderful, with loads of dry juicy kiwi fruits, some grapefruit, piney hops, a little grass, and some soft dry cerealy malt. So juicy, dry and drinkable, with remarkable elegance. Finishes on dry grassy and kiwi-y notes. Awesome stuff.

Bottle @ GT’s house. Clear golden orange pour with a white head. Really nice nose. Grapefruit, pine, biscuit, and peach. Good amount of orange in there, too. Flavor has some nice hops, but is quite bitter and a touch astringent. Grapefruit, orange rind, and lots of pine. Mild biscuit and a touch of booze.
