superspak (2828) - Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2012
750 ml bottle into pilsener glass, bottled in Spring 2012. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, biscuit, nuttiness, orange zest, herbal, floral, light pepper, grass, and earthy spiciness. Some nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and decent strength. Taste of lemon, pear, pepper, bread, cracker, floral, pine, light nuttiness, light citrus zest, grass, and herbal spiciness. Good amount of spicy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, light nuttiness, pine, citrus, pepper, floral, grass, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and complexity of flavors with big hoppiness; fair amount of malt balance; and a fair amount of cloying spicy pine bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, slick, and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Definitely a sipper with all of the intense hop flavors. Overall this is a nice imperial pilsner. Good flavor complexity and solid balance; and quite smooth to sip on. I enjoyed this quite a bit, despite the cloying hop bitterness.

Do not like nose, stale and not pleasant. Taste is strong and very bitter in the finish.

AirForceHops (3508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 9, 2014
2 oz. sample at the brewery. Light hazy gold color. Aroma is Saaz and a grassiness. Light dough.

Flavor is ok. Wheat base with a nice lingering bitterness from the herbal/ grassy hop with notes of hay. Medium body with proper carbonation. Solid amount of bitterness that lingers well after the sip. Pretty decent.

TheEpeeist (3399) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2014
26 oz bottle. Misty golden brown with a fluffy white head. Nose is orange marmalade, grass and zwieback. Oily medium body almost cloying with dull carb. Taste is orange juice concentrate, marshmallow and slight bitter grass. Another iffy style for me.

zach8270 (3582) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2014
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Clear gold pour with a fizzy head. Sweet malts and hops in the aroma. Nothing special really. Flavor is just sweet malts and too much carbonation. Bordering on sickly sweet.

mrhopsbeertalk (158) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Plagued by a solid #9 finish. The aroma and flavor start off decent, hoppy with a respectable malt back, but then WHAM finishes all fruity like 9.

nuplastikk (4698) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Tap at Eddies. Filtered looking orange-tan body below a steady creamy white head. Nice crisp hop aroma, but a little fruitier taste than I would want for the style. Noble hops carry it. Nice fruity depth. Above average for a Magic Hat. Really grows on you the more you sip on it.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle, caged and corked. Deep, dark gold-bronze pour. Thin but sudsy head. The aroma is simply big, sweet and biscuity. The beer drinks thusly. Rich with a definite alcohol presence, thickly malty and bready. Good stuff though. (#5424, 2/2/2014)

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Where and how: NY state , bottle 750 ml
Aroma average intensity. Soft malty feel with good but not bold herbal hop feel. Slight touch of caramel, hop acid and red apple. Dry alcohol on top a la Polish Mocne.
Appearance :3-
Top: medium sized, creamy whit top that created nice rings on glass.
Base: hazy amber.
Palate : medium bodied, with tad lighter yet well paired to body carbonation. Smooth clean top.
Taste: hop presence is far more accented in taste than in aroma with elements of sap. Nice refined bitterness with solid base of malts.
Other notes solid drinkable with warming heat.
