It’s been ages since I last had any alcohol at home (though I still have a bottle of Jura in progress). Tonight I went to the supermarket to pick up some snacks and on the way I spotted Kirin’s IPA. I’ve tried Kirin craft attempts before, so I wondered what this one is like.
I noticed this beer on the shelf of my usual liquor store, and as I’m in general very curious about Japanese craft beer, I couldn’t resist picking up a bottle. There’s a lengthy description on the label about how it’s Tokyo’s “blues soul” in a bottle – I don’t know about any soul, but it’s definitely very Japanese.
It caught my attention how this beer is labelled Maori… I was going to say I was wondering what the reason was, but it’s written right there on the label: they use a New Zealand hop.
Another beer recommended to me.
This one was recommended to me, so I gave it a try. Luckily a nearby liquor store has a good stock of various American craft beers, so I can go around challenging this and that.
This bottle just looks so funky.
At first I thought it was just an unlucky choice of spacing to brand this beer “extra ordinary”, but looking at the website of the brand, I’d say it’s probably an intentional joke.
