New world hops experience. Extraordinary hoppy beer, bringing in the totality of New World hops. Very lacy, bold but not palate erasing citrus
hops. Hop forward, comes on like 60 or higher ibu. A must try for hop fans, or most of us. Incredibly drinkable. Bomber from SD. I return the favour by circling Mother Earth for a visit in my next California trip.

Appearance-Copper to amber in the glass with an eggshell foam.

Smell-Strawberry and cream with grassy flowers.

Taste-Scorched grass and earth for the majority of the palate with the same strawberries and cream from the nose coming in late in the finish.

Mouthfeel-Big but not overpowering with a good finish and smoothness.

Overall-I would've expected the mouthfeel to be a lot heavier based on the taste but it kept a nice balance through the long finish. Nicely done.

22oz. Bomber bottle purchased from Fred at Beverages 4 Less. Poured into a CCB Snifter.

A: Pours a deep, dark orange, almost ruby color. Aggressive pour resulted in a nice fizzy head that eventually leaves a nice velvet ring on top of the brew with very nice lacing on the glass. Very cloudy. Not a hint of being translucent.

S: Bready, straw-like grassy notes, definitely some malt character, citrus notes from a the hop aroma.

T: Very lemony. Strong earthy tones and some bready yeast esters coupled with a mild malt character at the beginning. The grassy taste finds it's way out at the finish and is followed instantly by the high hop character and a good amount of bitterness.

M: Medium body and high carbonation. Crispy, oily, and a bit sticky. Very drinkable.

O: This one got better the more I drank it. I was little disappointed at the onset and I just found myself more and more pleased as I continued this review and kept drinking it. Very drinkable, but good hop and flavor profile without being overly malty. A good first Mother Earth experience, and I'd drink again for sure.

Growler share – Thanks bro!
Standard pint glass

A: Kismet pours a golden amber color with orange highlights and good clarity. I get a solid fingers width of khaki cream whip atop that holds some nice retention. Lace just sheets my glass all the way down.

S: Smells are bursting with grapefruit, peach, mango, and tangerines. There are some lesser aromas of Sauvignon Blanc grape and a suggestion of sugary pale malt sweetness. A dash of spice mixes in with the malt. A very pleasant and aromatic nose. Fruity and quite attractive.

T: Taste is an onslaught of pulpy grapefruit juice. There are accompanying notes of mango, melon, and white wine grapes. I get a bit of floral herbs, orange blossom, and honeysuckle. Malt imparts some light graham cracker sweetness with soft notes of spice (Rye?). There is a moderately higher level of bitterness that just saps the palate. Alcohol presence is minimal. Has such a refreshing citrus zing. Super fruity and quite impressive.

M: Medium light body with adequate carbonation. Gives a nice creamy texture with a light crisp towards the end. A bit of dry hoppy astringency lends to a nice pucker. Finish is a touch on the wetter side.

D: A stellar IPA. I really do love Nelson hops and this beer is just another affirmation of that. Super fruity, tropical and refreshingly drinkable.
I wasn’t all too impressed with some of ME’s initial IPA offerings but Kismet is incredible.
Highly recommended.
