3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear golden with a small white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of noble hops along with pale malts. The flavour is fairly bitter with noble hop notes paired with pale malts. The finish is mildly bitter with slight pepperiness. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth texture and average carbonation. Overall, a nice imperial pils, but not terribly complex. 2014-04-26

Tasted at Voodoo with ML. Pours clear gold. Aroma is hops, hay, and malt. Flavour is hoppy with a crisp pilsner-esque finish. Decent mix of European hops make this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange straw with small white head. Aroma has a good amount of citrus and a bit of malt. Sweet, fairly piney and resinous. Seems like an IPA with lager yeast.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received in a trade from jdb288. Golden and hazy with a little white head. A floral and fruity aroma is not big but interesting. First sip brings passion fruit with a complex hop profile. Noble hops that have some sulfur, tart citrus hops. They are also spicy. So much hop complexity in a style that is usually not very exciting. Some yeast is tasted and a little honey. This is about hops and they are all over the place. By the time it hit 50 F things smoothed out some, or my taste buds were fried by the noble hops. And by 55 it was fruity and spicy hops. What a fun beer that definitely bends the style definition. It is almost an Eastern European version of an IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours decently with a nice orange hazy color to it, not much of a head to it, more of a lazy white ring around the top with almost no lacing. The smell is decent with a nice yeasty, grassy, floral smell to it. It is potent yet well balanced at the same time. The taste is good with a nice yeasty taste, some mild bitterness, a mild grassy, floral taste that lingers on the back end. There is something else, a touch sweet that I can’t place over the bitterness. The mouthfeel is very clean, crisp, and a tad bitter that sticks around. Overall, a great pilsner with a good taste.
