For this year’s commemorative brew the brewery took its Sunshine Pils as a base and basically upped the malt bill and finished with a significant bit of dry-hopping using Hersbrucker and Tradition hops. Think in the ballpark of Imperial Pilsner. The beer drinks fairly nice and cleanly, though with a noticeable Noble Hop punch thanks to the multiple hop additions from the five varieties in the boil kettle, to the hopback, to the finishing dry hops. At 6.5% ABV, it may not be an all-night session-style beer, but it’ll certainly get you through happy hour both happily and in one piece.

Draft at DRE. Poured hazy gold with white cfrothy head. Nose was Saazy hops, spicy, pale malt. Tasted crisp, Saazy, semi-sweet, with pale malt and honey. Not strong or bold enough to be a great impy pils.
