Krunkles Down Under IPA


Seriously, I could never figure out this Krunkles legend. I think that's the way that Terrapin Beer wants it to be. Apparently he's on an adventure now creating IPAs with different hops from around the world.

Today I'm checking out Krunkles Down Under IPA brewed with hops from New Zealand and Australia. The can doesn't have a turtle but rather a very cool peacock pattern on it. 6.6% alcohol. Drink by 4/26/17.

Fruity and floral aroma, lightly tropical. I wanted a bigger smell from the glass. Tangerines and oranges, nicely sweet to start. Honeysuckle, citrus, very juicy. There is a great hoppy answer to balance that initial sweetness.

Interesting hoppiness, unique. Dry at the finish. And I like the idea of Krunkles around the globe. "Where in the world is Krunkles?"
