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.

Two week old bottle picked up from the hunger mountain coop on 9/27/13, poured into my wicked weed pint.

A: nice orange yellow, 3 finger had that dissipates but keeps a small 1 cm head. Great lacing.

S: lemon, grapefruit and wheat.

T: good fruity hops become a nice hoppy and alcohol burn that goes down easy.

M: a little boozy but overall good. More like a pale.

O: good, but not all that hoppy. I would drink this if available but its comparable to some of the finer ipas available in Tallahassee and not worth the trip.

22oz bottle thanks to Mike, appreciate it man. Sort of a hazy and cloudy orange color, decent head. Aroma is weird hops, fruity but indeterminate. Flavor was much the same, it was very hoppy but it was odd how the flavor was fruity and yet I could not tell what kind of fruit. Overall a good and interesting beer but not something I would revisit.
