What struck me with this beer was the grassy notes in aroma and flavor. There was a fruitiness to it, but I wouldnt have known it was kiwi without reading the description.

JPDIPSO (5796) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Hazy to nearly cloudy dark golden colored liquid. A taller off-white head. Decent lace. Lots of things going on in the aromas with, weeds, herbs, urine, pale malt, citrus and tomato. Not all good, but certainly interesting. Thicker feel. Lightly sweet, with a touch of floor malt. Slowly gets very bitter and slightly acidic. Finish is quite dry. Enjoyable pale/bitter. 8/11
