Orange-copper color with white head. Aroma is citrus, tangerines, a bit peppery-herbal spices. Taste is citrus and tangerine hoppy, fruit jam, some alcoholic sweetness (but not too boozy). Soft mouthfeel and carbonation. An excellent Imperial Lager, I am impressed!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Clear light gold with a big soapy white head. Lots of citrus and tropical fruit throughout in taste and aroma with a little toasted grain as a backbone. Definitely comes across as a lager but with a tremendous amount of flavor. Creamy mouthfeel. Really excellent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Bruery.
Aroma has a nice, crisp, fairly strong citrus hop character with light tropical fruit and pine resin. Light grain malt notes and clean yeast character.
Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head with decent retention. Medium light lacing and light legs.
Light grain character in the flavor with hints of biscuit and toasted bread. Moderate hop bitterness with moderate hop notes of citrus, pine resin and a touch of wood and floral hop notes. Light alcohol spice and clean yeast.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a really nice, hoppy imperial lager. I would prefer fruitier hop notes, especially in the flavor but its really easy drinking.
