A - Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of lemon and citrus hops, sweet grainy and cracker malts, and some floral hops. T - Starts off with grainy and cracker malts with some lemon and citrus hops and a bit of bitterness. Through the middle, some pine and floral come through with some more bitterness. The finish is a mix of bready and grainy malts with some lemon, citrus, and piney hops and some bitterness and lager esters. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a grainy and lightly bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice imperial pilsner with good overall malt and hop balance.

Bright clear gold beer with a good white head. Mild marmalade hops on the nose. Palate is light and mildly crispy from the fine carbonation. Clean pale malt. Nice hops - marmalade orange and a little fresh grapefruit and mango. Touch of aniseed before the neutral finish. Nice lager!

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2013
Draft. A golden yellow beer with a white head. The aroma has notes malt and spicy hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and spicy hops, leading to a bitter finish.

Gerbeer (1493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow/gold with light head of big bubbles. Aromas of malt, yellow fruit, and light toffee. Flavors of candy, lemons, malt, light spice, and resin. Bitter. Nice.

Pours a nice foamy head with lots of vitality in the bubbles. Being an "imperial" pilsner this beer is lighter than your normal IIPA has has a touch more sweetness to it. Would have like to have seen more hops come through on the palate.

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Bomber from Pangaea. Pours gold with a creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma is mildly bready with citrus and grass. Med body. Flavor is fairly bready with a lot of noble hop spice. It’s pretty happy. Definitely bitter, and drinks nicely.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 28, 2012
Bright orange colour with big white head. Mild hop aroma. Hop resin mouthfeel with mild hop flavour, I say mild as Luke normally loves hops, so this is very tame for him.

lliams (193) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2013
Crystal clear pour of light straw. Aromatics leap out of the glass- fruits and grass. Tastes much like an Epic beer! Upfront hops with that classic Epic flavour... slightly oily and long on the finish with some heat hanging around, which is a bummer. I like it though wish it was cheaper!

tejonno (11) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 21, 2013
Very pale straw, clear in the glass. Tastes quite ’light’ was my initial impression, you sure dont notice the 8.5% part! balanced, not overly hoppy I thought - was expecting more from you, Epic - but then this is the first imp pils I’ve ever had, maybe this is the style. I like the hop-malt balance, although the fruity hops get through in the end to round it out quite nicely
