This brew pours nice rich amber. No real head, but there are stringy islands of foam strewn across the surface. A ring of foam evolves around the edge of the glass. There is a minute amount of lacing.
The smell is fruity, citriusey or lemony.
Though I'm not an IPA / Pale ale / Mild ale kind of person, it is brews like this that begins to convert me. This tastes very lemon peel up front, with the slightest hint of a malt. Pine hops then creep up, but just a tiny bit. As the drink continues, a robust rush of hops appears.
The hop cleans the pallette, and remains through the somewhat sweeter but quite dry finish. The mouth is left with a bit of a bitter bite, but that is easily remedied with another sip...
The mouthfeel is somewhat coarse, but very very present. Kudos! As the drink continues, it becomes creamy on the way down.
There is some body to this beer, too. It is not thin and waterey, but rather robust. It is very good.
I really recommend giving this a try.

Imperial Pint consumed earlier today at the brewpub in Munster. Notes taken during the experience.
A- Deep golden bodied tap to pint glass pour with a thick, creamy-frothy two finger white creamy. Decent head retention while a medium ring means webs of thin lace.
S- Citrus hops and juicy tangerine tropical hops make up most of the nose with some light cracked grains and yeast character.
T- More yeast bread comes to light here but the hops are still the main player. Juicy tangerine and grapefruit with orange, pine, floral and mango. Slight bit of spice and fresh cracked cereal grains.
MF- Lighter end body but a substantial frothy foamy feel supports the juicy hops. Slight bitterness but smooth and sessionable.
A good mix of juicy fruit and citrus zest hops with a moderate yeast and malt base but it mostly comes in as a bright, hoppy session ale.
Serving type: on-tap
