3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber from a trade with The Alum. Poured a slight chill hazed dark rusty orange body with an average sized foamy white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of green grapes, raisins some honey and bread. Fuller bodied with average to slightly strong carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor of old wet bread with some honey and grapes, basically it’s sweet and grainy overall. Interesting beer but I’m still not sold on this style.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Secret Santa (alexsdad06) - thanks for this. I’ve loved Impy Pils ever since Sam Adams brought theirs out. Pours hazy orange tinged gold with a creamy near-white head. Aroma is bready and citrusy/fruity. Unusual. Med + body. Wow. It’s hoppy. It is hoppy.* Now the hop seems rather Saaz. It has something of a barley wine aspect. It just gets better and better. Gets lush. Yum.
*in a relative sense. Darn hoppy for a lager!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours hazy golden amber with a thin off-white head. Honey cornbread on the nose with some yeast and light herbal hoppiness. Very fruity taste, with lots of yeastiness, pale malt, and an almost sugary note. Feel like the hops are blanketed by the other flavors, and there’s very little crispness. Grassy hops on the finish, and the whole thing is pretty mouth-filling. Just not my style--I want this thing toned down, crisped-out, and a little more easy-drinking.

Pour is a clear light gold bordering on yellow color with a small white head. Nose is a bit malty with some light fruit notes as well. Taste is rather sweet with a little bit of a citric hop bitterness in the backend.
