A strong Imperial Pils, with flavors as smooth and crafty as Gollum himself. Like the ring which Gollum pursued for the rest of his life, his “precious” pils, if your quest leads you to it, could extend your life too! (at least we’d like to think so) It will, at a minimum, make your journey a little more enjoyable!

Amber golden in flavor. A bit cloudy. Nice carbonation. Very hoppy

This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance had a nice golden orange color with a two and a half finger white foamy head that gets a bit rocky in its look as it trailed off. Semi-thick foamy lacing roamed here and there in a nice lazy stringy way. The smell had a great deal of sweet corn malt with an ample amount of spicy and a light citrus hops. Light cracker-like breadiness runs in and out to smooth and balance nicely. The taste pretty much copies the smell but leans a bit closer to the sweet cracker side of flavoring. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sweet sticky creamy running smoothness rolling over my tongue. Sessionable, mmmm...okay maybe somewhat. The ABV doesn’t seem felt that much. Overall, this was a worthy Double/Imperial Pilsener that I would bang again.

I bought a bottle of this at Andersons in Reynoldsburg, OH. I don't think it made the trip from Washington very well as it was crap. The smell and taste were rancid. It poured a murky lactose yuk. Stay away from this unless you're on the west coast.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some slight hues of orange color. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving thin lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral, herbal and spicy hops are present in the nose along with hints of caramel malts.
T: The taste generally follows the smell, except that the finish has flavors of spicy hops and citrus rind with a little bit of associated bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. Notes of caramel and candied oranges become noticeable as the beer begins to warm up.
O: This beer seems to have a lot more hop aromas and flavors compared to other beers I've had in the style, except that they don't contribute much in the way of bitterness. The beer is quite complex. It also does a very good job at masking just about all of the alcohol from the taste.
