wow. this is the best beer i've had in a long time. amazing hop aroma, smooth taste and clean, crisp hop-wash on the palate. the style is certainly untraditional, but their creativity makes for a fantastic result.

What an interesting idea for a style. Came out well. Certainly a lager in taste and somewhat in aroma, but there are also a ton of hops in this one. Somewhat sweet as well. Crazy!

Medium brown color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and slightly fruity. A medium bodied Imperial Lager. Malts are fruity, sweet and nutty. Hops are spicy. This is a big hoppy beer, definitely in the lager style, but cranked way up. Interesting stylistically. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
