Aroma has some hop oil, ranging from nail polish remover-like scents to some floral aromas. A little boring and unusual in appearance, with a flat look, a little collar with a cloudy golden color. A very good malt undertone with biting hop qualities and some sharpness in flavor. Very nutty and somewhat velvety finish and a bit of the bitter.

This poured a hazy yellow color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma was sweet sdweet wheaty malts with hints of alcohol as well. Flavor was sweet with a flash of some hoppy bitterness and a long boozy aftertaste. This should not taste this strong at only 7.5 anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2009
Draft @ Lost Coast. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. Has a malty grainy and slightly hoppy aroma. Sweetish malty grainy hoppy flavor. Has a sweetish grainy finish with a long bitter aftertaste. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2008
very dissappointing. I was expexting this brew to pack a punch. No such luck. It was very bland and a little watery. Pass on this one. hayduke (5207) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 25, 2008
At the brewpub, this was a cloudy orange, with small white pub head and light lacing. Nose of malts and citrus hops. Rich mouttfeel. Flavor is mostly citrus and pine hops, and the finish is nicely bitter. Hides the alcohol well. Easy drinking for such a high alcohol beer.

On tap at Capone’s. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy/bubbly white head that left some lacing. Aroma of sweet almost candy like maltiness, citrus, floral and lightly spicy hop notes and honey nut cheerios. Flavor of spicy, citrusy notes. Noble hops, lots of malty sweetness, but finishes dry. Hop bitterness is there, light alcohol and grainy notes. Iced tea flavor as it warmed up. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2008

Tasted @ the Loast Coast Brewery in Eureka.CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2007
Pretty decent strong lager.
(Draught) Sampled at the Dog & Pony Alehouse in Renton, WA. Quick dissipated head atop a mildly carbonated, clear yellow body. Nose of iodine, vanilla. Flavour is strongly alcoholic. Average. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café: Golden in color, slightly fiery, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly sticky lacing, strong
carbonation. Mealy nose, certainly malty, but also a fairly strong hop aspect. Even a slight floral hint. Seems decent
enough. Forwardly hoppy, a little bit of heat, decent malt background. Not as flavorful as the nose suggested but still quite
good. Fairly clean. This certainly feels like an Imperial Pilsner. More hops than most. Body and mouthfeel are full
to moderate. Warming finish. I enjoyed this one even if it was a little abrasive. Will probably mellow with time.
