daknole (9142) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Rich gold pour, creamy white head. Citrus, resin, and some light unripe stone fruit. Flavor starts off with a bit of pale malt and quickly turns to the resin and citrus hops. Nice hoppy pils. Very good.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle. Poured a light clear golden color with a tall dense white head. Big citrus/floral hop notes in the nose, light grass, pale malt, and alcohol. Soft carbonation with a somewhat oily mouth feel. Flavor is much what I expected, an over hopped pilsner. Mostly sweet, loads of citrus and grass with lesser notes grain, pale malt, and toffee. Good amount of balancing bitterness in the finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Crystal clear 14 karat pour produced a 1/2 inch ivory head that left significant webs of lacing. Aroma shows citrus, lemongrass, spice, yeast, and black pepper. Definitely has a hot peppery quality accompanied by tangerine and hay...yes, chewing on freshly cut grass would hit the palate similarly. A bit prickly but very different...liked it!! !

glennmastrange (2285) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Bottle. Moderate malt aroma of grain, herbs and dried grass for the hops, mustiness for the yeast with a background note of pepper. Head is large, frothy/foamy with good thick lacing and is fully lasting. Color is crystal clear gold. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a carbonation between lively and fizzy and a dry finish. Basic aroma but excellent in interpretation of the style. This is an excellent version of an Imperial Pils.

eaglefan538 (2897) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle from SL. Poured a straw golden color with a big pillowy white colored head that just mushroomed a crown that was awesome. The aroma was grains and strong saaz grass hops. The flavor featured strong pilsy malts, grains, strong grassy hops, excellent spicey hops, strongly hopped overall. This paired fantastically with some mildly spicey tacos and guacamole, the alcohol drawn out a bit more probably because of the food. Mouthfeel was well carbonated and full bodied. A very nice DFH brew.

thirdeye11 (5592) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2010
(750ml bottle thanks to Sammer) opaque yellow with lasting film of white bubbles. Nose is floral, yeast and citrus. Taste of rye bread, oranges, bitter orange peel, with soft carbonation and bitter linger.

pressboxjoe (187) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle. Nice bright white head that slowly disintegrates. Subtle aroma of floral hops, some ginger, herbs, faint cinnamon, a little citrus. Nice mouthfeel, robust but not creamy or thick. Flavor hoppy, nice spicy pepper, crisp, clean, pronounced citrusy sweetness up front with lasting bitterness in back. Little bit soapy. Plenty of carbonation. It’s a pilsener. The imperial part is maybe a bit of a marketing sleight of hand.

Bottle thanks to Sammer. Smells alcoholic, tastes bitter, orange peel and basil. Pretty good!

zizzybalubba (1448) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2010
750 mL bottle from Total Wine in Raleigh (North Hills location). Golden orange pour with a thick and creamy off-white head. Aroma of roses and wet grass. The flavor actually does remind me of a pilsner unlike some other beers I have tried in this category, but there is a nice amount of floral hop bitterness to please my palate. I was expecting something more along the lines of Golden Era (it doesn’t quite live up to that standard) but this is certainly a different beer. This is quite good.
