3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

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.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

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
