With 4.4 million people, 44 million sheep, 2 million tourists every year New Zealand has a lot of extreme to offer. Maybe you like adrenaline pumping outdoor adventures like jumping of bridges with a rubber band tied to your feet or explore the breathtaking nature of the scenic Milford Sound. Or this Imperial Pils stuffed with newbie hop Motueka with tart, crisp and citrussy flavours – the hardcore essence of the Kiwi Experience.

Not what I was expecting a imperial pilsner to look or taste like. Poored a hazy pale yellow, slight white head. taste was nice with a touch of the high alcohol coming through. The hops were not really what I expeted they were a lot more subtle I wanted a little more from them. Over all nice but not outstanding.

ClubGonzo (5358) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2013
Pours a deep hazy orange body with a tiny white rim of foam on the surface. Nose is alcohol, peaches, sweet apricot, pine and hints of caramel and resin in the back. Taste is caramel, resinous piney tones, grass, booze and hints of peaches in the back. Thin to medium body, soft to medium carbonation. Nice enough, but the thin lager body feels a bit scrawny against the syrupy "DIPA" hop tones and the protruding alcohol. Not too bad, though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with light carbonation. Strawy earthy gooseberry aroma with spice pineapple notes. Dry-sweetish spicy wooden cumin taste with strawberry alcohol notes. Fullish body. Slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish pineapple and alcohol aftertaste with resiny strawy strawberry notes. Nice, drinkable, interesting. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - FEB 6, 2013
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. Huge beer!

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.
