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.

This beer is extra special on tap. I have had this in a bottle, but on tap, it tastes two times as good. It appears ruby red. This is unique for an IPA. The smell is amazing. The Citra Hops stands out in the aroma and taste of this outstanding IPA. The mouthfeel is lacking some umphhh, but gets it done and comes together well. Overall, this is a world-class beer on-tap.

On tap at Mother Earth.

A: Burnished golden orange with good clarity and an inch of white foam. Retention is good and lacing is all over the glass.

S: Aromatic orange, grapefruit, peach, and tangerine. I get a little white grape and faint tropical notes. Malt is light and bready.

T: Moderately bitter with bright notes of grapefruit and tangerine. Malt imparts a dash of short lived sweetness and a little cracker. The citrus profile is great. White grape is faint.

M: Upper light body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: Really good. One of the best I've had from Mother Earth.

This had a savory, and at times, brine-y aroma to it. Really liked the earthiness and grassy-ness this had - most likely the result of the Nelson hops. The palate is really bright and hoppy with great herbal, grassy, and peachy notes. Interestingly, the savoriness of the palate grew with air and began to take on some soy and spice notes...nearly resembling eel sauce. Has a nice bite to the finish, too. Great stuff.
