This pours orange with a thin foam head that does not last.
Aromas is powerful, huge tropical notes invade your nose, citrusy and resin hints as well.
Full bodied malty backbone then a salty well balanced structure of sweet maltiness and bitterness, and again tropical fruits and sponge cake with candied orange peel.

On tap at Crowbar
Orange, white head. Smells of malts, grain, cerials with some hops in the back. Medium sweet, quite grainy, some alcohol comes through as well. Heavy bitter, quite resinous. A strange beer this; i feel the alcohol flavor tries to tell me how imperial this is rather than how new zealand’ish it is.

Very very interesting beer.
Perhaps the best I ever had in its kind.
Dark copper color with pine aromas.
Malty on taste with a dry hoppy aftertaste. Very very pleasant.

From tap @Schouskjelleren, Oslo. Unclear orangey golden. Low creamy blond top. Sweet honey-ish malt aroma. Faint citrussy and grassy hops. Taste is far on the sweet side. Medium bitter, more earthy than fruity. Thick and palate coating. Alcohol-sweetness, citrus fruits and faint caramel malts in the ending. [28.11.12]

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 On tap at the Alehouse Project and the Local Taphouse. Very well balanced, with nice hoppy and spicey notes. Aromas of grain, butter, cinnamon, caramel, and anisette. Taste is sweet, with bitter and sour notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.

Bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours light orange with an inch of white foam that leaves lacing. A bit of floral on the nose. Pretty hop forward on the tongue which I don’t associate with the style at all. A fair amount of bitteress which is also unusual. Not feeling this take on the style.
