Sounds nice. Haven't tasted any beers with Riwaka yet, but it sure sounds very interesting. Thinking about making an APA with Riwaka and Amarillo to get a real passionfruit punch... Dunno about the chocolate malt, though. I'm really not a big fan of too much roasted flavors in IPA's, but if that's your thing, go for it. I feel that it often blurrs the hop flavors and aromas, though.

Keep us posted, then. If it turns out well, maybe I'll order some Riwaka soon... =)

just brewed on friday, forgot to update but the scent of the Riwaka hops coming from the airlock smells like a delicious blend of passionfruit and grapefruit. I can't wait to see how it tastes when i come back from bonnaroo next week!

Oh and i added the chocolate almost purely on the basis of color, which is why i added such a small amount, although a tiny bit of roast flavor i think would do ok.

Not sure which Brewjolais you had, but if it was this year's, I believe all the hops were NZ Cascades.

In any case, that sounds like a very tasty beer. Enjoy
