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!

Draft at the Bruery. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like hop resin, grapefruit, and toasted malt. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like hop resin, light grapefruit, and light citrus hops.

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.

On tap at Thirsty Monk. Lemon and spice aroma. Pleasant fruity and floral (and soapy) taste with lager crisp finish. Light smooth body. Good.

[2/21/15] Draught at Toronado in San Diego. Clear golden. Lovely hoppy aroma with lots of tropical fruits and citrus. Hoppy flavor with nice fruitiness and a bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Very nice.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Gold and clear appearance with a white head. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus zest, tropical fruits and light husky, toasty grains. Medium body with a nice smooth feel. Nicely done, an excellent lager and a nice quaffer.

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.

On draft. Aroma of hops, then a bit of the more familiar lager. Hmm! Flavor is of a burst of hops, pilsner style, then some juicy wet grass. Finishes sticky. Nice!

"Te deScription does not really reflect the greatness that was this brew. This is Pliny in lager form plain and simple. But for a slightly lighter feel (and maaaaybe a tiny tiny bit lighter but otherwise identical aroma and flavor) you can just about copy and paste the Pliny reviews over here. Absolutely stunned by this one."

Draft pour at the Toronado tasting event. Pours a super cloudy yellow color. Bitter floral hop aroma. Really hoppy lager with a decent bitter finish. This is a good beer for sure, but wouldn’t really call it great. Enjoyed it for sure.
