Life On Tap Episode #258: Kia Ora

Dan picks up an experimental wheat IPA – Folksbier Kia Ora, which features experimental hop blend NZL-32-2 from Freestyle Hops in New Zealand.

Folksbier Kia Ora

STYLE: Experimental Wheat IPA
INGREDIENTS: Experimental hop blend NZL-32-2 from Freestyle Hops (NZ)
ABV: 6.0%
IBU: N/A
AVAILABILITY: 12-Ounce Can (Limited)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can.

Appearance

Hazy, medium to dark yellow, with a moderate white head.

Aroma

Wild nose with huge lime juice, zest, and rind notes a la lime spritzer.

Taste

Lime continues onto the palate with faint bitterness and lime “foam”.

Mouthfeel

Spritzy with a full, gliding mouthfeel from the wheat.

Overall

Calling all shrimp dishes for pairing! The spritzer element lends itself to cutting through any fat or spice flavors and will provide the “scrubbing bubbles” effect.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
