Jack's Abby Kiwi Rising
Oh happy day, my absolute favorite beer in the Jack's Abby lineup arrives tomorrow, super fresh and in four packs of 16oz cans. Kiwi Rising is a Double IPL, or India Pale Lager. Think Hoponious Union scaled up, and swap in super tropical South Pacific hops. Here is how Jack's Abby describes the beer: "This is an intensely hoppy and strong lager that we refer to as a Double India Pale Lager. Over four pounds of hops per BBL of New Zealand hops (Kiwi Hops) were used in progressively larger hop additions throughout the brewing process. Four kettle hop additions, whole leaf hops in the hop back, and multiple dry hop additions infuse an intense floral and citrusy aroma. No kiwifruit or kiwi birds were used in the production of this beer." Not only is the beer delicious (a 99/100 on RateBeer), but is only $11.99 for a four pack of 16oz cans.
