Spicy hops evoking earthy oranges and vivacious conifers, standing firmly on a proud full malt body...Riding the fine line between stout flavors and drinkability, this imperial pilsner appeared to have a bit less oiliness in the malts than its Rogue counterpart, which helped its quenchable character a lot...If God really knocked back a few pints of this on the 6th night, I understand why he took a break on the 7th day!!...

Amber pour with a tight creamy white head. The aroma is nicely zesty and a little bit floral over a nice sweet pilsner malt base. There is a bit of vanilla and a bit of creaminess to the aroma. The flavour is bright and fresh with a lot of noble hop character. Lemon peel and a bit of herbal hoppiness. Long lingering bitter finish. Fresh and herbal with a nice lingering peppery character.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Orange color and clear. Pine and bread aromas, with a strange sweet caustic flavor, very malty and sweet, with light hops and a thick, high ABV body... not balanced in my opinion, but good as an experimental beer.

Im drinking glorified malt liquor on the street in Montreal with the cops driving by, sirens running. Smells malty and boozy. A little nobel hops, Czech style. I didnt get busted. Bottle from Delires du terroirs.

Draft at Blind Tiger with Andrew, Streets, Mark, Ben and Kyle. Pours a deep hazy orange body with nice cloudiness. Aroma is fruit, funk, spicy notes, and pils. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with dryer notes bleeding through the finish. One of the most flavorful pilsners Ive ever tried. Thanks DDC.

ClarkVV (6214) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2005
On draught at the brewpub and at the fest, June 2005. Light, yet brilliant goldenrod and straw colored beer, slight chill haze, but mostly clear, with a moderate white head, decent retention, low lacing. Aroma of grassy, rustic, floral, herbal, citrus and spicy hops. Everything but the bathroom sink, as far as the hops profile, it seems. Notes of sweet pils malt, but mainly just the juicy fruits. Flavor is full of hops, more flavor than bitterness, but still plenty of bitterness. Juicy fruits from the nose, grapefruit, minty/herbal hops, green grassy hops. Malt provides a backbone, of sweet honey and light doughiness, but does not have that syrupy, hugely sweet thickness that other Imperial Pilseners have. And when the hops are done this well, thats a good thing. Some of the most flavorful hops belches Ive encountered. FInish is moderately bitter, lightly spicy and fairly sweet, with a medium body. I didnt find any alcohol. Carbonation was relatively low for the style, and the mouthfeel was slick and bordering creamy at points, though there is some thinning of body on the end. Could stand a little more crisp yeast in the nose too. I really like J.F.s pilseners.
