Beer Camp at Total Wine in Boca. Pours a deep golden orange with small head with slight haze. Serious hop aroma with pine, resin, citrus, and malty backbone. The taste is a hop bomb with pine, spruce, mango, and lime. Caramel malt finish. Hop bitterness is almost over the top.

Poured a clear golden color with aromas of grassy hops, light melon, some malt, and a touch of fruit. Flavors are clean grassy hops, with some malt, subtle melon light and refreshing on the palate.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Tasting at Bruce’s. Thanks to Leighton. Lightly hazy gold beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth and dry with fine carbonation. The otherwise smooth malts have a trace of dust. Mild malt cream. Hops start mildly spicy and bring touches of hop skunk and tropical fruits. Mellow orange peel. Smooth finish. Pretty tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of caramel malts with floral and citrus hops. Appears copper with swirls of off white foam and minimal lace. Tastes of mildly sweet caramel and brown sugar up front followed by bitter grapefruit and gentle apple blossoms in the background. Palate is a little watery. Overall, a very nice, easy to approach beer, very good.
