Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks to drewone for sharing this one.
Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight herbal aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Bomber into a matching lawsons snifter. Big thanks to DonFrap for hooking me up with this. The brew pours an orange copper color with a tan finger. As the cap fades, it leaves a full wall of patchy lace. A swirl revives a finger back to the surface displaying solid retention.
The aroma is juicy with hops that are tropical and fruity. Almost a bit of orange marmalade character with a touch of that vinous nelson aspect before getting herbal and dank with a little fresh cut grassiness. Overall not the most bold bouquet but very solid and enjoyable nose.
The taste is herbal and bitter with a hint of dusty grain underneath. The hop flavoring has a bit of melon or mandrin appeal before getting pulpy and zesty with rinds and pithy bitterness. The fruity hop aspect lingers long into the finish with a kiss of solvent alcohol.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is very easy drinking with a creeper alcohol inclusion. I would crush this stuff if it was made available to me in an easier fashion. Well done and worth seeking out.

Don't let the name fool you there is no kiwi in this, fruit or bird. The Kiwi is the New Zealand hops that punch you in the face with each sip. It is the first DIPA that I've ever had that I liked a bit warmer to help offset the strong and bold hop profile and settle it down. Not to say that this needs to settle down but it makes it easier to catch the hop variant flavors: pine, earth, onion, grapefruit, tangerines, sour lemon, tart oranges and even a bit of grass or tea.
This is truly interesting and exceptional.
