look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Golden copper color with a thick three fingers head with good retention and leaving a curtain of laces.
Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, caramel and dry fruits. Hints of Cointreau or oranges soaked in alcohol.
Flavor of herbal and floral hops with oxidized oranges and pineapples, biscuit malt, caramels and honey. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with low to medium carbonation. Alcohol of 8% abv is felt, but relatively smooth, especially considering it is a Pilsner (all right, imperial).
Nice that still has a base of a true pilsner, just amped up. Good benchmark for an Imperial Pilsner. Reminded me a bit of Belgian IPAs despite the lager yeast, which is also surprising given its relative complexity.
