4.39/5 rDev +11.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pub glass.
I've always liked the look of a pilsner and this beer is no exception. It's exceptionally clear, has robust carbonation, and an attractive pale golden/straw color. There's a finger thick head that dissipates into a layer of lace that persists well. This beer could win on looks alone.
As advertised, there's a big hop profile on this. Big in the sense that the beer is exceptionally floral and almost dank. Still, it's also very sweet and biscuit-like, maybe even giving off some granola aroma.
Some new traits make their presence felt on the palate: zest and lemon. There's a light mouthfeel that is refreshing and makes me want to drink more. I don't detect as much sweetness on the tongue, as the beer is dryer and slightly bitter. There's still something biscuity or even cracker-like, and this flavor lingers on the tongue.
I really like this beer. Forget session IPAs, this will do the trick if you want an easy-sipping, yet full-flavored beer.

3.71/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Dry hopped with saphire bottled on 6/4/14
Pours a pillow topped off white head. Color is a clear straw yellow with active carbonation in the glass. Lots of lace left.
Flavor profile: Dry, grassy hops. Kind of herbal. Bready like a pils should be. Has a light lemon zest citrus flavor. Light fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: Dry and crisp. Clean. Light bodied. Ends dry.
Overall, a pretty decent pils. Seemed to lack on flavor a little bit. I did enjoy it, however.

3.66/5 rDev -7.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours golden color with very small head and mild lacing. Strong tropical fruit aroma. Malty tropical fruit taste, especially at the end. Mild hops, but cannot discern any bitterness. Aftertaste is fruity. Now this rating is based on a small sample taste at a bar. I would be willing to try a full glass to see if my rating changes. As of now, it is not really what I look for in a beer. I can see the potential for high ratings, though.
Serving type: on-tap
