Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large off-white foamy head with great retention and some pretty good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops is dominating with bready malt backbone and dry hoppy notes also perceptible. Taste is dominated by medium citrus notes with a solid bready malt backbone and a dry hoppy finish. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Interesting take on this American style by a German brewer though not as much floral hoppy notes as I was expecting.

Hazy copper-orange pour with two finger pure white head with great retention and lacing. Huge citrusy, tropical fruit nose with plenty of resiny hops as well as hints of pine. The taste is just as bold. Resiny fresh hops and tons of tangy citrus dominate. Hints of grapefruit and mango with a solid caramel malt base. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy with a great tangy bitter hop finish. If I didn't know better, I'd have thought I was drinking a West Coast IPA. And this one is scary drinkable for an Imperial. Hoping that FritzAle is breaking down barriers for the still young German craft beer scene. A great Imperial IPA!
