COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
an imperial pilsner at 8,5% packed with Mosaic, Citra and Amarillo hops and pre-wrapped for all you beer geek hobos out there. This is a perfect balance between the tropical fruits from the Mosaic, the Citrus fruits from Citra and the flowers from Amarillo all put down in a balanced body where the crisp lager fermentation makes space for the Melanoidin malt base. Who said lagers were dead????

VsXsV (2572) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Almost clear amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, mango, grain, sweet malt and fresh hops. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of citrus, toffee and mango. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Decent aroma but taste is a bit too sweet taste.

Pours a clearish light cobber with a small off-white head. Dry with a hoppy sweetness. Hoppy Soft carbonation. Long, very bitter finish. Good.

leaparsons (8461) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden brown with a large off white foam. Aromas are bready toasted malts with floral pine and tropical fruit. Creamy woodiness with peppery alcohol. Flavours are sweet tropical fruit with bittersweet pine and a grassy bitter pine finish. Very good.

Barwa i piana: barwa ciemno pomarańczowa / miedziana, zgaszona. Piana lekko zabarwiona (żółto -biała), drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita, umiarkowanie trwała, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: cudowny i orzeźwiający aromat amerykańskich chmieli (ananas, mango, cytrusy, kwiaty). Jest tak silny, że trudno przy nim wyłowić słód (może lekkie melanoidyny), natomiast wyczuwalny powoli staje się alkohol. Profil jest czysty bez obecności estrów. Smak: wyraźna słodowa słodycz, szybko skontrowana chmielem. Na finiszu spieczona skórka od chleba oraz wyraźny alkohol. Balans w kierunku chmielu, ale sprawdza to się doskonale. Goryczka i odczucie w ustach: dosyć wysoka, owocowa goryczka, lekko drażniąca i długa, ale nie zalegająca. Krągła pełnia, dodatkowo wzmacniana przez względnie wysokie nasycenie. Wytrawna oraz alkoholowa, rozgrzewająca przełyk końcówka. Następne piwo, które zakupiłem dość przypadkowo, chcąc osiągnąć wartość zamówienia potrzebną na darmową wysyłkę. Jest to imperialny lager o czystym profilu, solidne chmielony trzema amerykańskimi odmianami. Zaskakują w nim przede wszystkim opakowanie (zapożyczona z piw belgijskich forma butelki owiniętej w papier) oraz dość głęboka barwa. W obu przypadkach są to jednak decyzje trafione. O ile podobne piwo z Mikkellera wypiłem z trudem, to tutaj musiałem się powstrzymywać żeby nie wychylić go w kilku większych haustach. Zaczynam się zatem zastanawiać czy solidnie chmielony lager nie jest lepszą alternatywą od IPA? Ogólnie świetne piwo, zdecydowanie do polecenia, choć cena niestety nie mała.

floydian1 (1100) - FNQ, Australia, - FEB 19, 2015
Who would have thought that a lager can be so hoppy? From a 375ml heavy-glassed green bottle, it pours much darker than your average lager with a hazy light amber body and a large foamy stable just off-white head. Hoppy tropical fruity and orangey aromas dominate on top of a caramel malty base and hints of pepper. Palate is medium bodied and provides medium sweet flavours before a long fruity bitter hop finish. Nicely balanced and very drinkable given the ABV.

Smalle (175) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2015
BBF 14/08/2016, but already tastes "aged". Aroma: tropical hoppiness slightly over its prime. Alcohol at first, but quickly mellows out. Taste: very sweet malty base, some fruit and a very bitter finish. Ok, but probably would have been better fresher.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark copper pour with a big frothy magnolia head, citrus and light caramel aroma, taste has caramel and malt in the forefront backed up with light citrus hoppiness, grapefruit, very sweet and sticky ABV in your face.

tommann (2949) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2015
375ml bottle. Pours dark caramel with a medium head. Aroma is burnt caramel, toast and mango hops. Taste has caramel to start and mango hops on the finish. Easy drinking.

Torrefacto (729) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 7, 2015
Ámbar oscuro y limpio con espuma canela compacta y duradera. Aroma equilibrado con multas caramelo y lúpulo afrutado, melocotón y naranja con toques de pino. Cuerpo medio con inicio dulce de intensidad media y acaramelado con sabor de melocotón y final de amargor intenso y resinoso.

Christian (11377) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2015
Cloudy amber with a big white head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine. Sweet malty flavour with caramel and lots and lots of hops. A bit too sweet for me, but great hop character.
