Camping with beer Camp once again, bottle. IPL with great hops, clean finish and some grapefruit in between. Another success for Sierra Nevada ’ s hop torpedo, possibly the best hop head invention since beer itself.

Bold imperial pils with aroma and flavor that is both strong in bitterness and well balanced. Nice colors with a weighty palate and strong carbonation. Still retained that Pilsner character though.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2015 Another winner from Beer Camp. Super classy brew. Pours a clear, rich gold. Has all the qualities that make me love the style- clean (but not particularly crisp) with the hops adding all the right bitter qualities that put it over the top. Has orange, grapefruit, pine, floral, earthy and touch of grass. Some malty sweetness balances the crispness and hops, but gravitates more towards bitter and resinous notes. In an approachable lager way. Alcohol well hidden. Very easy to sip. Slick, medium mouthfeel. Great beer all around.

Tap. Clear golden. Nice white head and bubbles. Minimal nose. Crisp with nice malt presence. Would never have guess it was an Imperial.

Bottle. Pours a hazed amber with a medium sized white head. Spicy citrus on the nose, a bit of bready malt. Medium bodied, sweet grain, nice smoothness. Sweeter than I would like, comes off as a sweet double ipa that has had some of the hops fade out. Sweet and bready on the finish, light hops.
