Awesome beer! Not a kiwi-flavored brew. "No kiwifruit or kiwi birds were used"
A: Stupendously golden like a sunset. Thick, frothy head that sticks around. Unfiltered
S: Citrusy and oh so delicious hops! Pilsner malt presence is detectable in moderation
T: Hops and flowers. Bitter like a dandelion. Citrus fruit rather than kiwifruit
M: It's crisp, it's smooth, its 8.5% abv would not even register if it weren't for the heavy hopping of this beer. Every stage is hopped plentifully and it shows. The hop bite is my favorite part of this, my first perfect 5/5. From the bottle: Over four pounds of hops per BBL of New Zealand hops (Kiwi hops) in progressively larger additions. Four kettle hop additions, whole leaf hops in the hopback, and multiple dry hop additions..." The hopback really complements this brew quite nicely. Extremely hoppy aftertaste strongly lingers like fine cooking oils do. This brew transports me to a New Zealand sheep farm in the Kiwi highlands.
O: Really superlative lager. One of the best Jack's Abby brews, and they are all world class... This beer may not be for everyone at 105 IBUs, although I think you will come to enjoy it!!!
