Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of orange zest, frosted Cheerios, cherries and some spicy hop notes. Flavor of prunes, spicy noble hops, finishes dry. Surprised by the dark fruit notes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle. Soft but pleasant aroma of green, grassy, herbal hops, pale, lightly sweet, grainy malt and traces of doughy yeast in the background. Seems fairly fresh. Light to medium hazy golden in color, with a persistent, fine, foamy white head and plenty of lacing. Flavor profile is lightly citric, with touches of biscuity, lightly sweet malt, lemon, tea leaves, honey, and the unmistakable grassy, herbal character of the Saaz appearing at the finish along with a moderate amount of bitterness. Rather refreshing and "wet" on the palate, amazingly light in feel for a lager of this heft, and with a medium-full body. Tasty. The strength starts to come into play a bit as it warms, so you may wish to have this a bit colder.

Pour is a bright gold with a small whie head. Aroma has that nice bready pils malt with a little alcohol. Flavor is a nice pils malt with a heavy mouthfeel. Itís not that heavybut more chewy. Deffinatly gets some pils aspect and les off that malt liquor aspect. I would get this again.

Probably the best imperial pilsner Iíve had so far. Great floral hops on the nose. Pours clear. Very crisp. Cross between an IPA and a Pills. Love it.

Bottle bought at the brewery. Pours a golden-orange color with white head. Aroma is malty and citrus. Grainy flavor, also some citrus and a dry aftertaste. Iíve never been a huge strong lager/imperial pils fan, but this beer wasnít too bad

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2012 Appearance is orange-gold with good head and lacing. Aroma is fresh, exquisite grapefruit - arguably the best grapefruit aroma Iíve encountered yet. Taste is an almost puckering grapefruit and alcohol with strong bitter finish and lingering hoppy aftertaste. I love the weightlifter logo on this - shows that this is no beer for lightweights. Motherís does it again with their strong beers - I was more-than-impressed with their imperial IPA, and now their imperial pils has knocked off my socks. Only thing is, it seems more like a DIPA than an imperial pils, so I docked some style points.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle-Pours a clear golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of citrus, grain and some malt sweetness. Taste of grain, citrus and some malt sweetness. There is a bitterness throughout and a dry finish thatís is just a bit sticky. Medium body, crisp but has a musty feel. Decent beer, just not one of my favorite styles.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a dark orange/amber color with a frothy off-white head. The aroma was a lot of grapefruit hops and sweet dark caramel malt. The taste was a decent amount of sweet malt and lots of fresh citrusy hops before a toasty, bittersweet finish that hides the abv well. Very good!
