Huge thanks to luisc123 for this in a BIF I won. 64 oz. growler of this long time want served in a Brewery Vivant snifter.

A: Pours a solid gold color, slightly hazy, with a big pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly down the glass with excellent retention. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass.

S: Light hoppy bitterness with a cracker malt profile. The lager yeast is present as well on the backend to remind you it's still a pilsner at heart.

T: Just like the nose. Generously hopped with a slghtl bitterness and fruitiness mixing with a sweet cracker malts. The lagery yeast is there again bring a light corny and popcorn flavor with a slight dank hop characteristic as well.

M: Light bodied with an insane drinkability. Nicely carbonated with a really smooth and slightly drying finish.

O: I really liked this beer a whole lot. Super drinkable with a great balance between the hops and the malt profile. The yeast profile was assertive enough to let you know it's still a pilsner which was great.

Serving type: growler

On-tap at TRB. Tulip.

A: Pours a clear deep golden color with a dense, oily, and greasy off-white head that faded into a lasting collar that left streaks of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Huge dominating notes of citrus and leafy, sticky hop cones. Hints of mint in nose and taste.
T: Tastes like a fantastic ipa. Can barely detect the lager yeast if it is there. Definitely green and leafy, solid bitterness. Slight stone fruits in the finish but not much. There's a touch of lager breadiness in the finish but it's really not present.
M: Greasy and slick medium-full body. Tingly bitter and sticky mouthfeel. Tingly wet splashy carbonation.
O: Crazy hoppy and smooth. Great bitterness, clean and easy. First hoppy lager that I probably wouldn't know is a lager unless I was told it.

Serving type: on-tap
