3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh bottle right from the east coast. Nice grainy golden pills smell with some sweetness and little lemon citrus and maybe a touch floral. The flavor is right up what you?d hope, a big but clean imperial pilsner with a moderate hop kick in the end. Really solid brew with foamy carbonation, grainy and somewhat sweet but grounded earthy floral and mildly dying finish. A little lemon cough drop flavor but not in a bad way. Brisk refreshing 9% beer.

Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing this! Great yellow in the glass, very fresh and floral in the nose. The beer starts intense, very floral and lots of citrus. Hints of mint and spice in the aftertaste.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy straw with white head. The aroma is dominated by American hops, citrusy, pine, orange. The flavor is clean, grainy, the hops are bright and clean, orange, pine, resinous. I am still on the fence about IPL’s, if they were all like this I would have picked a side. This is fantastic.
