Lunkie (1847) - Glen Iris, - JUN 27, 2014
Herbal hop malt aroma. Clear red amber colour with great head & lacing. Malt berry herbal spice flavour. Smooth lingering palate.

Maris (1408) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 24/11/2016. Pours a clear deep gold/copper with a biggish head. The nose is primary resin, herbal hops. Take a sip and theres some light biscuit malt, some sweet citrus, and a huge, herbal, resiny bitterness which is a touch abrasive. The body is quite full and the carbonation. Ive been quite impressed by Kaiju up till now so this is a bit of a disappointment. Not dreadful, but a bit unrefined and lacking in cohesion.

Dervock (1040) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle- pours copper with a lacy white head. Aroma is citrus, pine and grain. Immediate hit of the hops which lingers into a dry bitter finish.

CacheManyHose (622) - HONG KONG - JUN 21, 2016
Drank w Matt after Ikea. Pretty orange-amber. Off-white head with a circular yeasty ring. Aroma is heavily of that plastic-smelling hop, moderate hop and lemon/lime. Taste is aggressive bitter quite grassy resin hop, lemon/lime finish with fizzy carbonation. Not bad, lots of flavour and very bitter - so bitter it is almost puckering in the taste - but not the biggest fan of the plastic hop. Lots of grassiness and some nice malt and citrus notes though.

HKdIPA (710) - HONG KONG - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Hazy dark amber pour with thin head. Aroma is sweet honey grain with some pine resin hops. Taste is big and bitter and very very plasticky (not sure what type of hops it is that gives me that sensation) with some pine resin. Quite bubbly. Not a bad IPA but the hop profile I don't like.

varanid99 (1056) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2016
Amber pour with a 1cm creamy beige head. Pine, oranges, grapefruit, resin nice malt underneath. Taste is big piney, grapefruit and a bit of toffee and a fair whack of bitterness at the end. Havent had a bad beer from these guys yet, surprised this isnt rated a bit higher.

drjoeng (946) - SINGAPORE - MAY 20, 2016
6.7%ABV. IPA. Poured out Amber. 16SRM. Nose has pine, citrus peel fresh and bitter. There is a nice strong hint of lavendar as well. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has toasted malt body with graham cracker, honey, wheat toast. Hops are bitter, resinous and in the end a bunch of spice with pepper leaf, green chili, Medium long finish. Goes on Favorites List!

Davros (2871) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2014
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows pine, grapefruit, nutty marris otter-like notes along with spicy and herbal hops. Aggressive flavours. Main focus is on pine and grapefruit again. Not much malt presence which only makes the aggressive bitterness that much more abrasive. Dramatically overcarbonated.
