thanks to egrace for gifting me this beer! Thanks elliot!

Bottle is dated November 2012 on the side of the label.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy golden blonde bodied beer with 2 fingers of head. Lots of lacing and good head retention. Great looking lager, I honestly cant remeber the last lager that i drank that looked this good. Seriously.

Smell: bright citrus and tropical fruits. A hint of bananas and fruitiness. Bready and yeasty notes too. Hints of garlic and onion.

Taste: Its a beer that is fairly balanced, but the hops tip the scale a bit more than malt profile. The beer is somewhere between mild to moderately bitter. Tropical fruits and floral hops are pretty big here. Also a touch earthy. Pine and citrus are abundant as well. Onions, garlic, and grassy hops seem to float around. Malts are fairly bready, but also grainy and cracker like. Mild lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: low end of a medium bodied beer. Moderately carbonated. The beer is really crisp and clean, yet it is also got a creamy and slightly resinous / oily mouthfeel. Carbonation is lively, but not prickly or ticklish. You would not think this beer is almost 9%, it drinks closer to 6% abv.

Overall: I have never had an Imperial Pilsner before. The hops dont really give this beer a chance to be a regular pilsner, but I dont care because this is a tasty beer. This is my second favorite Jack Abby's beer and they make some wonderful hoppy beers! i am impressed again by Abby Jack's. But Hoponius Union is still my favorite. You can think of Kiwi Rising as bigger version of Hoponius Union. My favorite aspect of this beer is how unique the hop profile is... its true unique.
