Muggus69 (1198) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2014
330mL bottle Nice bottle! Creamy dense white head sits atop a pale golden body. Good nose to it; grassy, floral citrusy, spicy hops, sort of Noble, with light toasty pale/pilsner malt graininess. Big body, decent carbonation, excellent weight holding on long on the body with some warmth. Clean biscuity pilsner malt character lays a base for a good hit of floral, citrus hop. Moderately high bitterness, slightly sweet on the finish. Well made, certainly one of the best Imperial Pils I’ve come across.

shorlin (650) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Very pilsner looking, golden yellow, not a lot of head. Aroma is big floral fruity hop. Bitter hoppy, dry. Good beer!

Wombata (452) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2014
Aroma: Earthy (as in ground rather than funk), roasted (almost smoky) caramel, very malty, Palate: Medium-bodied. Flavor: Roasty, nearly smoky big malt, bready, yeast with medium sweetness. Lasting hop astringency and a long dry finish. Comment: Much better than the retired Dogfish Head IP.

adster (327) - HUNGARY - SEP 1, 2014
Cukorkás-süteményesen édes és gyantás-akácvirágos illatok, pilzeni test gyümölcsmentes, vagy legalábbis kevéssé gyümölcsös IPA köntösbe burkolva. Éles és cikkázó ízjegyek, vibráló jellegű remekmű, mely minden bizonnyal az "imperial pilsner"-típus egyik mintapéldája lehet.

Silvan7 (697) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 1, 2014
On tap @ Birre in Piazza Eataly , Milano. Ambrato carico, quasi aranciato, con schiuma beige fine, non molto persistente. Aroma molto intenso, fruttato, frutta gialla, pesca sciroppata, prugna, zucchero candito, ma anche floreale, gelsomino. Gusto abboccato all’ingresso, ma quasi immediatamente vira su un amaro deciso. poco acida. Equilibrata, armonica, calda.

__Rb81 (188) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle at home (batch LS225/11, best before 01/2014). Pours a hazy golden orange with a big head. Aroma is bitter hoppy, malts, a bit fruity, but probably a lot less than when fresh. Taste is quite bitter hoppy with some malty sweetness. Dry finish with a long hoppy bitter aftertaste. Nice, would like to try it fresh.

BVery (6208) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Tap at Broder’s Terzo Vino Wine Bar in south Minneapolis. This is the Italian version of this beer. Hazy golden-yellow pour with a nice white head. Bready, a little spicy. This seems a little dryer than I remember the Dogfish Head version that I had from a bomber.

motelpogo (6692) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 29, 2014
bottle, thanks to skykob for grabbing this at beergeek. quite a pale golden with a minimal but lasting head; tropical and citric aroma, some grapefruit; light-bodied, not much alcohol showing for an imperial pils, good hit of bitterness, slightly metallic; too bad czech breweries can’t make stronger pilses like this

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Collaboration with Dogfish Head, an imperial Pilsener, in other words: a strong lager with ambitions. Creamy, snow white head, clear golden blonde colour with orange glow. Sharp and not very inviting aroma of bread, lots of grassy hops, lemon peel, iron, black pepper, blue cheese and a weird, bit chemical smell of turpentine or something like that. Tastes fortunately a lot better, rounded, clean pale malts, lively and fascinating spicy notes, bit metallic, rather full body, firm and assertive, long herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Different and interesting.
