KIKK IPA 2020 on its way! And KIKK IPA Website launched!
We are doing KIKK IPA this year again! Highly acclaimed KIKK IPA 2019, which was brewed in collaboration between Ken Ishii and RISE & WIN Brewing Co. last winter, is followed by KIKK 2020! Ken himself recently went to the brewery in Kamikatsu-cho, Tokushima Pref. and attended the brewing process before fermentation. We will keep you posted what’s going on on this website. Check back later!
Happy New Year, everybody! My dream came true at the end of 2019! I'm pleased to announce my first beer ever, an IPA style, has been brewed in collaboration with RISE & WIN Brewing Co. @kamikatz_beer in Tokushima Japan and is now released! It's not name-lending stuff at all - I visited the brewery myself, kept discussing the project with them, chose the ingredients, made the recipe and did an original label for it with my designer @yasunobu_yamashita who has designed a number of the artwork of my records! For craft beer lovers to understand, this beer is double dry hopped IPA with lots of tropical fruit aroma of American hops and a bit of spiciness of Japanese oriented hops called Sorachi Ace. ABV 6.5% IBU 48. Special thanks to my friends @djlucasfreire and @ynux1 for helping me out for the recipe and encouragement. It is available only in Japan at the moment though, due to its limited scale of production and marketing channel. Anyway, I'm really happy!
