Another outstanding Terrapin Beer Company offering. Not quite as good as the other "Monster Tour" offerings but great in itís own way.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 355 ml bottle from a trade with Degarth. pours a hazy orange with a small off white head. aromas are huge hops over bready malts with some alcohol. flavours are huge hops with a lovely pilsnerish malt structure. this is an amazing beer that shows more barley wine and IIPA characteristics then euro strong lager but given the intention of this brew id expect nothing else. very good brew,one of my favs!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale and clear. Just a touch darker than an ordinary pilsner. Huge white head, a mixture of fine and big bubbles, slowly fades down the glass leaving a sticky lacing. Hoppy, pleasing aroma. Spicey, earthy, with a touch of citrus. Full bodied, but surprisingly smooth. I almost wish it was a little more bitter. This beer just slid down my throat.

I was pleasantly surprised with this. Malty, semi sweet with hints of pear and apple, some spice and vanilla. Crist and smooth, very good.

I donít think pilseners get enough respect, and I think the word Imperial pisses many people off. In spite of these facts of life, this one was a welcome entity in the box goldtwins sent me. The pour was hazy deep golden, with a 1-finger off-white head. The aroma was tropical fruity, with some hops, pale malts, canteloupe, tangerine. The flavor was pale malty, with a strong hop presence, some fruity apricot, and some honey. Terrapin is a very solid brewer that never lets me down.

Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a thick white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Really nice mouthfeel. Flavor is really sweet, with an almost cider-like taste to it. Alcohol present in the aftertaste. Iím usually not a fan of these imperial pilseners, but this one is pretty nice. Thanks to TheBeerCellar for this one.

On tap at Twains, though Iíve had it several other places/times. What bugs me most about this beer is not getting it in bottles! Itís about on line with the style, in that itís golden, lightly carbonated, with a malty, sweet taste complemented by spicy bitterness in the first swallow, mellowing out to more floral and gentle in the end. A good benchmark for an emerging style.

Clear golden pour with a small white head. Nice, clean aroma full of spicy Saaz hops and grainy, bready malt. Flavors were super crisp and clean. Lots of earthy and spicy hop flavors with a lightly sweetened malty finish. Crisp finish. Slight bitterness. I liked this a lot.

Tap at Mellow Mushroom in Brookhaven, GA. Pours a clear deep gold with a nice white head that leaves some good lace. Aroma is thick and sweet with lots of bready pils malt, and a lot of herbal and spicy hops- hallertauer/tettnang type. Flavor is nice and sweet but balanced well with lots of hops and finishes crisp and moderately bitter. This was a great impy pils- too many seem overly sweet and harsh- like prescription/golden shower. Easy drinking and clean all the way through.
