Pours a surprisingly strong head. Color is a yellow amber. Smell is a bit mellower than what I had expected it to be. Still, it does have quite a bit more hop smell to it than what I would expect out of a pilsner, imperial or not.
First sip is a wash of hop wallop. That, alongside with a certain quality in what I would consider "regular beer" that's been amped up to an awesome level. I would compare it to you ordering a burger, then finding out that the beef is kobe. Body is powerful without being out of balance.
I'm a bit surprised at how much I like this beer. And not for the reasons that I thought I would be. Try it, if you can find it.

Got this at MOM's organic market in Herndon. Opened in my hotel room in the Crowne Plaza a few blocks away. Surprisingly, gushed on me, messed up the carpet a bit. Now to the review.
Very Murky yellow body with quite stable little yellowish white head. Head is creamy but looks a bit coarse. No bubbles visible
Nose is some pilsner malt, there is a whole lot hop aromas going on. There is some resin, noble spiciness and some fruitiness too, maybe pineapple
Taste starts a little sweet and is followed by resiny hops and bitterness, sweet pineapple again.
Drinks very smooth with little carbonation and the suspended yeast. Alcohol warms a bit.
I do not really know what to make of this. I expected a Pilsener but it is way too sweet for that. I think it is overly hopped but the hops are nice. It does not have the refreshing sharpness of a lager but it is smooth. The suspended yeast would make it a Zwickl still it is more an IPA than a lager. Do I like it? I am not even sure about that.
