Clear, bright, honey-golden appearance, fresh, chalk-white head, 1/4" and slowly dissapating. Aroma: lively hoppiness, Saaz, I’d bet, floral, herbal, and sweet, distinctive and impressive.
Big mouthfeel, full blast of tantalizing hops that sweetly ring the mouth, before drying out. This play on the palate returns in every sip , and before long the larger than average ABV starts to ring forward and rise above the flavor, projecting itself as a major player in the overall profile. Now, I’m not sure why the meaning of this brew’s name escaped me so far, but I get it now!
Vry tasty, with a rich, amber flavor, slightly buttery, but classically pilsneresque, with an extra edge.

Lots of hops in this strong double pils, citrus taste to the hops and a slight grapefruit finish. Pours a nice amber with tall white head. Slightly grassy flavor to the malt in the beginning and a strong bitterness to balance the finish. A really nice bite to this brew, tasted a bit stronger than 7%.

Bottle: Medium amber hue with small but lasting frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and floral hops with a sublime spicy character, some lime and orange notes, and a hint of biscuity malts. The taste starts fruity (mostly citric) and herbal and some malt background. A big dose a forceful bitters shine through and are very lively on the palate. The finish displays the same light spice found on the nose with a different, almost subdued lingering bitter quality. The feel is aggressive and lively but does finish with a papery dryness. Alcohol was well hidden. Oh yeah, this is not your dads pils, full blown and heady stuff. I enjoyed it quite a lot. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Bottle. Pours a ruddy orange color. Decent white head that fades rather quickly leaving a thin film. Some lacing. Aroma is a mix of malt and spicey hops. Pleasant balance with malt and hop in taste. Fairly smooth. A little more flavor than most lagers that I have tried. Very strong hop finish leaving tastes of citrus rind. marcus (10560) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 12, 2010
This 2002 vintage bottle was won in a drawing at Fredfest and subseqently dropped on the cement floor. Amazingly, the bottle didn’t break but the cap popped off, and most of the beer was saved and consumed by whoever was nearby. This bottle will be known as "Double Capsize Double Pilsner." The beer is cloudy golden with a thick white head and floral yeasty aroma. There is a substantial sweet malt flavor complemented by very nice hop bitterness that held up well over the years. A pleasant accident.

So it’s back! After 6 years, wow. On tap at the brewery. Pours a golden hue with a medium white head. A big nose of floral and sweet honey biscuit. The flavor is grainy, sweet sugary malts, honey, light floral hops. Very smooth. Solid. bhensonb (15603) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Bomber from Belmont Station. Label much more detailed than original! Pours bright gold with a white head. Aroma of light sweet malt and mild non-Sazz hop. Med body or better. Flavor is very lightly sweet malt, and the hop is somewhat Saaz. Nice, but flavors are not strong. Could use much more noble hop IMHO. Finishes mildly biter. And quite clean.

Pours clear solar yellow with a thick and fairly persistent porcelain head. Aroma delivers crisp pear and fresh malt tones plus a hint of hops. Flavor continues the aroma while taking everything, especially the hops, up a notch. Normally I don’t think of pilsners - even Imperial ones - as bold, but this one is! Mouthfeel presents decent body and jazzy fizz. Capsize a glass - but if you get "capsized," please call a ride. LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle - I really enjoyed this beer. Yellow body with a white head. Hoppy and malty with a nice finish. Couldn’t taste the alcohol. Dogbrick (13520) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Sample at the 29th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival on 07/30/2016. Cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to a film. Short strings of lace. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of spicy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hop aftertaste. Decent overall.
