Bottle at Tørst with Max, Ramy, GT & Whitney, Podey, Andy, Pearl, James, J-Dad, and maybe some others later. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. I don’t get kiwi specifcally, but there’s some tropical fruit. Smells more of dragon fruit than kiwi. Crisp and grainy, soft dusty grain. Medium bodied, light tangy fruit on the finish, grainy and lightly bitter. Foffern (1835) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 12, 2013
Bottle shared with Veitafan. Has a slightly hazy orangy amber colour with a small light beige head. Aroma of pale malt, hay, leather, sweet corn and some spices, alcohol, caramel and grassy hops. Well-balanced. Lots of leather in the taste along with wood, dried fruit, pepper and grassy hops. Has a dry ending with some alcohol. Slick mouth feel, and has a medium lasting bitterness. A balanced and pretty complex imperial pils. jredmond (8201) - New York, New York, USA - APR 6, 2013

Davros (3132) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2013
Pours gold with a large head.
Nose shows grapefruit, orange blossom and some biscuity malt.
Pretty aggressive flavours, very hoppy. Pine and grapefruit with a fair whack of sweet clean malt too. Aggressive sharp bitterness in the finish. Very clean, making the bitterness stand out even more. Seems a bit disjointed.
Great moderately high carbonation. LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2013
