If you're in love with Southern Hemisphere hops as much as we are, you're going to fall head over heels for this Hazy IPA. Kiwi Kiss is our ode to the many delicious hop varietals that hail from New Zealand. Hops were first planted on the north and south islands by British settlers in the mid-1800s, but it wasn't until the early 21st-century that NZ-grown hops really exploded in popularity. As beer drinkers began flocking to more tropical, citrus-forward interpretations of IPA, brewers began to recognize the potential for the hops exporting from kiwi country. Today, New Zealand hops are widely sought after for their highly aromatic quality and delicious array of fresh flavors. Kiwi Kiss is a clean, lightly-colored, Hazy IPA with a moderate alcohol level. Wai-iti, Wakatu, and Waimea make multiple appearances throughout the hop bill, with Motueka and Nelson added during the double dry hopping.
