  • Canned on 4/07/20. Purchased at Iron&Glass; in Minooka.

    Pours cloudy. Vigorous pour brings on a huge, white foam. Great retention that creates juicy, thick spiderweb lacing.

    Aroma is dank, citrus and soapy. That is the order I get them. Some sweetness. The soapy my be the lemon citrus playing with the other aromas.

    Taste is more muted and less complex than the nose; almost one noted.

    Body is almost thin at times but the bitterness in the finish creates a bit more. Medium carbonation. Dry.

    Interesting take with the CTZ with other New Zealand hops but it misses with me. This is a good beer and may be more pleasing to others. I would not have this beer again and I really like Riverlands beer. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • A New England Style IPA featuring Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hops from New Zealand. Tamaki is named for a body of water in Auckland, New Zealand. With this beer, we showcase two of our favorite "kiwi" hops. We taste notes of white wine grape, citrus, papaya and a bit of pleasant grassiness.
