Best by May 9, 2015. 12oz can poured into a pint glass. This was a gusher, but didn't affect the experience. Pours a pale yellow with a small white head that leaves nice retention and solid lacing. The aromas are full of sweet pilsener malts. Lots of citrus notes. I will say there is a nice hop presence in the aromas and flavors. Some pear in the mix as well. The flavors are great. There's definitely a hop bite to this one, but still remains true to the style. Maybe some black pepper in the mix as well, but it's really not spicy. It's extremely clean and refreshing. The mouthfeel is very nice. It's light with a solid body to it. The carbonation is active and it's very smooth. This is an extremely drinkable brew. It's perfect for the warm weather, but will hit the spot during any season.

I'm pretty much blown away. This is definitely my favorite beer I've had from Sixpoint. I'm disappointed that it took me so long to try this. Awesome stuff. Highly recommended.

16 oz can served in a nonic glass.

Pours light amber in color with a good head that has decent retention and some lacing. Little in the way of rising carbonation bubbles for style. Poor clarity.

Aroma: mixed grains, soft fruits and herbal hops.

Flavor: Fruity for style.

Feel: light body and medium-low, too low, carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O: a decent pilsner, but compares poorly to the SN/Firestone Walker Beer Camp Torpedo Pilsner that preceded it.
