3.81/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

64 ounce growler
Served in a pilsner glass

A - It is a nice amber color and crystal clear. The first pour yielded me three quarters of a glass of off-white to beige head.

S - I get lots of citrus and tropical fruit. There is a little caramel malt in there to balance it.

T - The taste has some of the tropical fruit and citrus that I noticed in the smell. I also get a little pine. It has a pretty clean finish.

M - Moderate

O - This beer is listed as an India Pale Lager. I think we need a new category here on BA. It was a nice variation of a lager. It is not a flavorful as an IPA, but this is quite a good lager. I have had it a couple times and is a nice change of pace.

Pours into a becker a clear rich copper/bronze with a fluffy full one finger white head atop that leaves two broken rings of lace as it settles.Wow great fresh hops aromas that really hit ya,grassy and herbal with some pineapple also being detected,just big and fresh,some sweet dough and booze is there as well.The hops hit up front on the palate with some grass and citrusy notes,the malt base is bigger in the flavors than aromas with some caramel and sweet dough being rather large,some more sweetness comes from sugary alcohol as well.Really liked this beer,just a great hop profile in the nose.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy bright orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/earthy hop notes with moderate malt sweetness; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of bright citrus/floral hops with moderate bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Imperial Pilsner. All around nice complexity of bright hop and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
