3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Hops & Pie. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and great lacing. Big hoppy aroma - grassy, weedy, citrus, a touch of cereal, biscuit, grapefruit peel, and lemon. Taste is big hops, biscuit, bready, weed, ganja, grainy, chewy, and orange peel with a bit bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Tastes like an IPA to me, but damn tasty no matter what it is.

Draft at Moriartys. Tulip. Hazy gold pour with a frothy white head. Strong citrus floral hops off the nose. Tastes of orange peels, pine needles, apricot pits, toasted wheat, clove, pepper, and kumquots. Hops are generally in charge here, though it runs through some pilsner flavors as well. Quite sharp.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a hazy golden color with a slight head that sticks to the glass. Wonderful fruity aroma. Mild hop flavors and none of the usual harsh flavors of an imperial pilsner. I think this is the first imperial pilsner I've really enjoyed.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Draft at Sybarite Pig in Boca Rayon, FL. Tulip. Nice light yellow with slight haze. Very white medium thick head with solid lace. Aroma is surprising for a lager. The humulus hops care very citrus and pine smelling. Light yeast bread aroma as well. The taste was very fresh with grapefruit, pine, earth, and slight bitterness. Very good lager...close to an IPA.
