3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Medium golden colour with a lasting tight white head. Aroma is very hoppy, perfumey and grassy. Light biscuit malt pairs well with floral green grassy hops. Very drinkable, absolutely awesome for patio sunshine days. Not getting the imperial designation though-- is it meant to imply that they hopped the shit out of it?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, from the 2012 beer camp mix pack. Thin fizzy white head, some bubbles on the side of the glass. No lace. Clear golden color. Bigger body for a pils, but not quite an "imperial". More crisp carbonation, dry finish. Bready, good spicy and lemon-citrus hops. Some bitterness. Grainy aroma. Light spicy hop aftertaste. Seeing the celery that another rater pointed out. Enjoyable, but I’m a bit disappointed, after the raves I’ve been hearing about this.
