12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a clear straw to golden yellow with 4 fingers of fluffy off-white head and some fantastic lacing. Head forms fast and fades slowly.

Medium carbonation, juicy mouthfeel. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 12 oz. bottle. Pours a glowing golden with a medium foamy white head. This is a very nice looking beer. Big, citrus aroma with apparent lager yeast. Flavor is extremely hoppy, quite bitter. But, also pretty nice and refreshing. Full bodied, above average carbonation. Finishes long and bitter. This is a nice, big, hoppy lager.

Pour is hazed golden yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a light touch of grain and an appealing citrus and grapefruit hop balance. Taste is similar, very nicely done. Light grain and a hint of earthy malt. Hops aren’t overly strong but take center state, soft grapefruit with notes of sweet orange rind. Body is light and very well carbonated with a softer feel through the finish. Not super bright but good stuff!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle and poured slowly to keep the gunk in the bottle: Clean golden hue with a nice fluffy head and very nice lace. The aroma right away says this is not a normal and more akin to an IPA, juicy fruit, light dankness, some resin from the hop additions along with a nice pils malt grain background. The taste is more of the same, strong but not over the top bitterness leading towards tropical and citric fruit flavors. Again there is just enough pale malt profile that you know it is there but lets the hops shine. Hum... a "west coast IPL?" The mouth feel is lively and moderately clean, just a bit of alcohol as it warms. I am not normally a fan of Imperialized classic styles but this one is so far removed from the norm that is kicks ass. I would love to try moar. MIkey Likey!

A very clean citrus forward hoppy strong lager. I’d drink this for weeks, or until I died from alcohol poisoning. This one sneaks up on you.
