Had this on tap at the Bruery. Poured a pale light straw color with a 1" pillow of bright white head. Big nose of citrus like hops and a very light biscuit like aroma. The taste was great. Fruit like hop presence with some piney flavors as well. Light bodied and carbonated well. A little dry on the finish. This is a good beer. I'm not much in to lagers, but this is an exception. Tasty stuff here. Heard a lot about this stuff. It didn't disappoint.

A: poured a pale golden yellow in color with a finger of fluffy head that left some frothy lacing sticking to the glass.

S: a nice piney hoppy bouquet was noticeable upfront on the nose with citrus, malty sweetness, and earthy notes but had hints of booze.

T it definitely had a nice piney hoppy punch that was well balanced with the malty sweetness alongside citrus, caramel, and earthy accents.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a piney, hoppy, citrusy, mild sweet, crisp, and bitter finish.

D: very delicious beer if your a hop head and considering it is not labeled an IPA but was very tasty and drinking really good.
