4.03/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

-not quite a golden yellow with some cloudiness. really scattered lacing

-smell is nice. smells like a DIPA. solid hops, some foot. crazy for a pils though

-not as much hops in the mouth which is good based on the style. a little soapy to me. good taste though

-little oily

-solid. if i had to make a list of pilsners to keep around, this would be one

Serving type: growler

4.29/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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
