Appearance: Pours an opaque orange.
Aroma: Aroma is of sweet malt, very faint pine hops.
Taste: Medium light bitterness, buttery lagerness.
Palate:Medium light body, light aftertaste, some fizz.br/>
Summary: With Imperial Pils they really need a strong hop character..the one on this one was just okay.

The aroma is citrusy and soapy with a pale malt backbone. The appearance is golden with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall this just isn’t enjoyable to me despite not having major flaws.

tap at Dash In (Feb 24, 2012) - Pours lightly hazy gold and smells of light malts and citrus. The flavor includes sweet, mild malts and good crisp hops. It has a light to medium body and though 7% abv and called a "double" pilsner, I found it refreshing. Good, balanced pils.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6/10/12- Pours a murky deep gold with a white 1f head. Aromas of citrus, mango, alcohol, and phenols. Very full and syrupy like some double IPAs, very soft carbonation, cloying mango sweetness, bitter and dry on the finish. On a blind taste test I would've said this was a weak, sweet double IPA. This beer seems a bit messy and needs some help finding itself.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear light copper glowing body with a very thin off-white head on top that fades very fast. Aroma of alcohol, metal, fresh hops, grapefruit, pine and a nice pungent strong scent. Medium-bodied; Assertive orange flavour with some other fruits, deep malt, alcohol, a light hoppy flavour and a lot of metallic notes that taste a bit off. Aftertaste shows some depth, but the metallic notes and strong aftertaste shows too much alcohol and bitterness. Overall, an interesting beer, but not great, still worth trying ,especially for the season. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 23-May-2012 for US$2.49 sampled at home in Upstate New York on 26-May-2012.

Pours a hazy honey color with a thin white head. Aroma has some sweet straw and grassiness...faint citrus and tea. Flavor follows suit...notable sweetness...mild grassiness. Mouthfeel is light/medium and silky with a slightly hoppy bitter finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a light gold color with a small, white head. The nose has a slight odd green hop note and a little pale malt. The flavor has a peppery bitterness, off metallic notes, some grain, green apple, green pepper, and alcohol. Medium bodied with low carbonation and an odd bitter and vegetal finish. This brew is a bit of mess.
