It seems more like an IPA an over-hops beer. Citrus notes are evident but the bitterness is not perturbing taste. Quite drinkable indeed.

Extreme pils, the masterpiece of the brewery. It was made with Dogfish. Taste: Hops, citrus, spices. The body is obviously low. Complex taste,with an amazing long end. Clearly underrated, compared with beeradvocate ratings.

unclemattie (4189) - Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2012
375mL bottle. ($7.99 / bottle.) Golden color, a touch of haze. Tall, foamy, white, frothy head. Leaves sexy lace all down the neck of the glass. Aroma of mixed berries. Scent is wine like, resembles a Pinot Gris. Flavor is sweet, fluid grains, light citrus effervescence, soft malts, gentle straw pils malts. Finishes with a straw character with grassy Saaz hops and a citrusy Simcoe presence. Delicate, elegant, and perfect in every way a beer could be. The most well made beer I’ve ever had. So soft and divine. Loads of fruit without fruit being used. Amazing. (3251)

janubio (409) - SPAIN - DEC 15, 2012
750ml. bottle, that looks more a brandy or liquor bottle than a beer one. Hazy golden colour, big head with good retention. Smells of hops, exotic fruits (I think papaya), oranges, spices, floral notes. Medium body, good carbonation. Taste is very bitter,spicy, maybe pepper, papaya, oranges, herbal notes and simply a hop beast. Dry and bitter finish, this is a great beer.

Bottle at Cookie. Spicy and complex, a treat. Aroma of grain, nuts, butter, vanilla, almonds. Taste is sweet, with light sour and bitter notes, long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Dark yellow, with a big frothy head.

Very hoppy aroma, very fruity and citrusy... what a character! Taste is also dominated by hops.

Buonissima lager iperluppolata ma assolutamente beverina, la migliore assaggiata all’open baladin.

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.

marom92 (47) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2014
Slightly hazy golden colour with just a tint of orange. Thin, but ample, white head with excellent lacing. Strong aromas of pine, passion fruit and honey. Floral, with hints of grass, pepper and spice. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Lightly sweet initial flavours of a buscuity malt with notes of passion fruit and other tropical fruits. Dry finish, with bitter flavours of pine and lemon. Aftertaste is slightly spiced. Excellent beer.

colore dorato intenso e luppolo in ogni dove!una bestia difficile da domare al palato. Sublime. Se piace il luppolo questo č un vero trionfo. C’e chi dice che Sam abbia lanciato alla ceca luppoli nel mosto, ma a quanto pare ha fatto centro in ogni lancio. Complimenti!
