2012 batch. Growler straight from the source.

I am going to preface this review by recognizing my love/obsession of Kiwi hops...

That being said this beer is freaking awesome stuff.

Bright orange colored nice long lasting head. Clear not cloudy. You could read a newspaper through the glass.

Wonderful citrus aromas. Did some cut up grapefruits in the room?

Extremely bitter but non by any means over barring. Oranges Pineapples Limes Kiwi's and Grapefruits are present. Very drinkable for the high ABV. I took down a growler no problem. Quite the quaff.

Absolute homerun for JA. Better than the bottles last year which is saying a lot cause I liked last years batch a ton.

World class beer. No joke. Do this year round! PLEASE.

Serving type: growler

These guys are really pushing the envelope on what a lager can be. This is, by far, my favorite of theirs. Super pungent, nutty hop-bomb and a nice clean lager mouthfeel. Too bad it's a limited release. I need to visit their tap room one of these days.

500 mL bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A -- Big fluffy white head. Moderate lacing. Golden straw colored body. Very clear.

N -- Big citrusy hops. Some pine and maybe some pepper or spice. Kind of boozy.

T -- Big citrusy hops again. Grapefruit mostly. Also resin/pine. KInd of grassy finish.

M -- Very nice. Fine carbonation level. A little bit tingly.

O -- Awesome. Really fantastic, hoppy lager. Cheers!
