COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden in color with a dry hop floral aroma and intense hop bitterness supported by a big malty backbone which culminates into a hedonistic mouthfeel. Yee haw!

Shared with Yuriko. Sweet almost honey perfumy nose with a big dose of floral hops for some balance. But it just doesnít meld all that well. Itís like a super sweet syrupy beer immediately followed by an uber hoppy earthy bitterness, rather than a sweet and hoppy balance. Good for what it is I guess. But definitely not a style that Iím seeking out. The bottle itself is the biggest selling feature.

Appearance: slightly hazy yellow. Bubbly. Big white airy head that lasts awhile. Aroma: fruitty ethers, fresh rain. Slight woodyness, but light. Taste: crisp, grapefruit, lemon, some pine-like earthyness. A little tart with a bite at the end, Feel: Very crisp and lively. Excellent with dinner (pulled pork). Excellent beer. Bottle is also awesome. Wing top stopper allows me to save some for a glass tomorrow. Hail Rogue and the Iron Chef for another job well done.

"maltier than expected, but still heavy on the hops and bitterness. Not worth the price ($12) as Sam Adams IP is better. This one didnít taste fresh. OK."

750ml bottle.Very good, a top Pilsner, 8.8% is nice! But..$20 for 750ml is a little bit much!?!? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocJitsu (1049) - Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Pours a lightly murky, light golden with only swirling remnants of a white head. Bouquet is more akin to an APA. Flat, flat, flat. Moonshiny quality. Much like the lid was left of a high gravity pale ale all night sitting on the deck. This is the most awful beer Iíve ever drunk. I wouldíve been better off with a schlitz.

Bottle (750ml): First I want to say the bottle is very nice, ceramic I think. Pours a most clear golden with a nice white head. This is not your average pilsner, not light , but medium bodied Some fruitiness and malts with a slight bitterness. Nice.

mbgrayson (560) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a clear gold, with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, and hops, with a bit of sweetness. Taste is rich and full, a little bitter, with a rich palate. Smooth and drinkable. This one is a bit different than many. Thumbs up!

mattyhennessy (348) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2014
Pros clear golden with a white head. Tastes as the name suggests, like a pilsener but double. Extra malt and extra sweetness comes through. Moreso than the additional hops. Slightly fruity aroma, malt driven flavour and a crisp finish. Excellent, particularly coming from someone not fond of pilseners

Bulk_Carrier (2272) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a decent looking hazy orange to light brown color with a nice transparency running about it. It was definitely light enough to see the carbonation rising at a moderate pace. There was a two finger white foamy head that dissipated about a minute and left a nice spider web lacing sticking finely to the sides of the glass. The smell had a nice typical light spiciness (from an Imperial Pilsener) with a decent bitter to sweet hoppy to malty complexity. The taste followed the aroma almost exactly and it had a nice spicy to sweet to bitter aftertaste and a dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium. Still, it shows just enough sessionability and has a nice carbonation running about it. Overall, in my opinion, this was a mighty fine Imperial Pilsner well worthy of having again and well worthy of having with its respected food.

Draft at Rogue. Light golden color. Aroma is some grains. Rice. Alcohol. Light bitterness. Average carbonation. Pretty good.
