This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a burnt yellow color. Light carbonation could be seen rising to fill a rapidly dissipating one fingered head. Lacing was messy with a semi-thick appeal to it. The smell starts off with a sweet grassiness rolling into some light delicate malt (slightly like corn). The taste was moderately sweet and taking the sweet grassiness to blend in a slight grainy sort of fashion. There’s a semi-smooth sweet grassy edge to the aftertaste and riding into the aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good for the style and for me. Its sticky, but not cloying. Overall, this is a pretty nice Double/Imperial Pilsener. I’d have it again.

Pretty good imperial pils. Pours a hazy golden straw color with 1 finger white head..

Smell is mostly malt with very little hops or yeast coming thru..

Taste pretty much matches the smell, not much going on here in the complexity department..

Good drinkable beer that is a little sweeter and less hoppy than I was expecting from lagunitas .

Would drink again but wouldn't go out of my way to find it..

On tap at Sunstreet. Pours a clear dark yellow color with a very white head. Smell is crisp pungent noble hops with biscuit aromas. Taste of crisp floral noble hops flowery hoppy notes mixed with biscuit and cracker malt a sweet caramel intervention on the finish. mouth feel is crisp and dry with floral light bitterness in the hops, some boozy aftertaste. I like my pils turned down this was to boozy for a drinkable refreshing lager it was however worth a try.
