3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle picked up at FFF brewpub. A cloudy and light brown beer with a smallish golden head that never leaves. A nose of fruit and floral hops. Flavor is quite robust saying this pilsner is, indeed, an imperial. Plenty of hops that are bitter, floral and piney, and yeast. A strong malt backbone but the hops reign. Some nice fruit flavors add interesting notes. This is generally sour. Pretty nice but this is a challenging style.

Bomber. Nice beer here. Certainly ’floyds’ as it isn’t your typical imperial pils. Was wanting a bit more crispness in the hop profile as the aroma alluded to. Drink like it’s bigger than 7.2%.

Bottle shared by Dosbeerigos. Hazy light orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was a tad yeasty with hints of honey and light citrus. Flavor was very much the same as the aroma, sweet and a tad yeasty. Overall a good showing here.
