4.15/5 rDev +2.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: Orange blossom honey color. Medium high apparent effervescence. Thin layer of foam that quickly fizzles out. A little haze. Little lacing.
Smell: Medium in intensity. Mango, Passion fruit and that Dried leaves like flavour that indicates aggressive dry-hopping. Very pleasant, but still a bit rough around the edges and lacking a bit in depth.
Taste: Follows up on the nose pretty tightly. The exotic fruits and vegetable flavours seem to have an equal part in the overall profile. The very same criticism applies here.
Mouthfeel: Medium to medium full bodied. Medium to medium low carbonation. Medium high bitterness. Lasting caramelly / vegetable mix flavour.
Overall: A very decent IPA, but one that left me somewhat disappointed. I've tasted kiwi-hopped brews only a few times, but theres no doubt in my mind that kiwi-dominated brews have all the potential to become the next big thing in the craft brewing world; All that is needed is some very potent showcases of the ridiculously exuberant, yet elegant hop character. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. It's a great brew and one i wouldn't mind having many more times but it's just not there.
Serving type: bottle
