3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Imperial Pils fatta in collaborazione con il DogfishHead di Sam Calagione.
La parte floreale e di luppoli ne esalta il corpo un pò scarso o comunque più scarso del odore.
Bevuta in bottiglia.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle, pours hazy orange with a large foamy head. Plenty of bready & caramel malts and a big grape & seville orange citrus hop profile, with some lemon zest thrown in. The aroma is great. Low carbonation for a pilsner, but this is more than a normal pilsner. Crisp, hoppy as hell, but still with a good balance. Very nice indeed.

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with a gigantic pillowy cream-colored head; leaves some decorative lace. Aroma is citrusy, SweetTarts, bready. Taste is hop-forward, like a nice American Pale or a hoppy American craft pils. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation is fairly soft. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light citrus and fruit nose. Palate follows suit. Lots of nice carbonation going On. Pilsner im not sure because hops seem pretty high. Very well done and unique.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma concentrated at first. Took a minute to open up. Gives way to a nice cereal nose with roasty notes, and subtle raisin. There are definite piney-hop notes as well. The beer pours a hazy amber with a decent amber-hued head. The taste is great. Definite pine coming from the heavy hopping. Also subtle earth and spice notes. Spice is especially apparent on the finish. Nice carbonation with a surprisingly light body and an excellent bitter finish. All in all a world class example of the Imperial Pils style.
