Dogfish Head's My Antonia is a heavily hopped imperial pilsner, and it's tasty. I don't know if it would make fans of traditional pilsners overtly happy, but it has a lot to appeal to this IPA fan. The body is a cloudy yellow with a tremendous head. The aroma is heavy on floral and pine from the Nobel hops, and not a lot else. There is buttery malt in the flavor, but the hops are dominant and forward. I actually enjoyed this quite a bit, but I'd have enjoyed a good IPA as much or more.
