4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance:medium light yellow with a dense but fluffy white head that left significant swathes of soapy lace. Aroma: big dose of floral and grassy hops over a barely detectable bed of crackery pilsner malt. Taste: bright citrus tang and big floral hops up front, then a good hit of slightly sweet toasted white bread. Finish: crisp but not clean (in a good way), as the lingering hops dry the palate nicely. Notes: This was, simply, great. The palate was spot on perfect, and the hoppy character was borderline insubordinate. Also, the cover art looked like a cross between Heironymous Bosch and Warhammer 40,000.

Bottle shared at natifest. Pours a pale yellow with no head. Aroma is floral and fruity. Tastes fruity, sweet, and a touch floral. Overall, one of the better imperial pilsners I’ve had to date.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5/11/2011: Three Floyds Evil Power Imperial Pilsner... Aroma: Doughy malt, herbal Noble hops, yeasty. Appearance: Hazy yellow color; frothy off-white crown; low level of visible carbonation. Flavor: Pils malt paired with a light citrusy hoppiness with a splash of pine; mild to moderate bitterness. Palate: Medium-light body; smooth and very easy going down. Overall: This isn’t anything over the top, but this is a nice, easy to drink, and enjoyable brew that’s easy to drink and quite sessionable; not overly heavy like other "Imperial" Pilsners.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear gold color. This white head that lasts the entire beer. Aroma is grain and sweet. My bottle seems to have an off flavor I can’t place followed by a tart finish. Grain flavor and some sweetness.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden with a lot of carbonation and a huge, white head. Aroma is full of dish soap, oranges, grains, and floral hops. Taste is clean and hoppy, and has a light body with a grainy aftertaste. I’m a fan of pilsners, and this doesn’t even hold up to some of the cheaper imports.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours a hazy golden-yellow with two-finger white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of floral hops, honey, and some grain/grass. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Taste is mostly bitter, but well-balanced. It lacks the signature citrus hop bitterness found in so many other FFF beers. An excellent Imperial Pilsener, even if it’s not one of my favorites from FFF.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours a pale straw color, medium white head. Nose is old school hops, malty cerealness. Mouth is medium, lemon zest, cereal, malt, the basic Pilsner. ABout what I’d expected and not something I would’ve gone out of my way for but it was on the shelf at Binny’s and 3F’s is one of my favorite brewers so I figured what the hell. Better than Miller and the like, but still overpriced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought on DLD day.
Pours a bright yellow with white head.
Smells of sweet bread & a hint of hops.
Slight hop taste upfront which ends in a definite pilsner bread yeast.
Not a pils fan even on a good day but this is doable most likely to their hops used.
Overall this is a nice pils in both style & taste. 3F did it well.
