Bot. 3.21.14 Consumed 8.14.14 - Sampled in Spiegelau ipa glass.

(3.65) A: Palest of straw pour is lemony in the vessel with an easy clarity and moderate rise of macro-effervesce. Atop sits a cornsilk white head, slight in size, short in retention, lapsing to a minimal lace coverage.

(3.75) A: Aroma was soft wheat and lemon slices. Dried grains light level.

(3.95) T: Flavor was wheaty, hay and lightly dry citrus. Flowery hops are of good levels here, much above standard expectations. Lemon grass, freshly squeezed lemon, good bite of spicy herbal hops on the finish and swallow.

(4.0) M: Crisp mouthful, very sharp and tight providing a good tingle on the tip of the tongue.

(3.95) O: Overall a very hoppy pilsner, good drinking with near pale/ipa hop levels. Sharp palate and carbonation, great flavor.

12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap and bottled on 04/10/2014 poured into a stange glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear, straw yellow

Smell: The aroma is light with floral hop character and a faint biscuit

Taste: The bitterness is up front, with the typical pilsner malt profile coming in the middle with some grassy undertones and finishes clean with some floral hop notes

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated and very crisp

Overall: I really enjoy pilsners and I like mine more on the bitter side. This is a solid pilsner. This isn't hoppy like I might of expected from the name. I can see where they were going by focusing on a cleaner, more floral hop character but that might get lost in other peoples minds with how common "dry-hopped" is being thrown around these days. A very solid pilsner nonetheless.

A -4.25 - Extra light straw color. Very clear. Thin but persistent white head made of exceptionally small white bubbles. Minute bubbles can be seen rising continuously in the glass.

S - 2.75 - Wet, grassy hops dominate the aroma with a low, unappetizing vegetal note that reminds me of sauerkraut. I don't get any malt aromas.

T - 3.75 - The flavors are cleaner than the aromas. Grassy, noble hops hit first, then there's a slightly sweet, pilsner grain note. The wet vegetal aroma is echoed by the aftertaste.

M - 3.75 - Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Moderate hops bitterness. No alcohol presence.

O - 3.5 - This is billed as a hoppy pils, but I don't find it overly hoppy for the style. I do find the wet vegetal flavor and aromas distracting. I am a big fan of Firestone Walker, but I think they missed the mark with this one. Personally, I'd rather have a traditional Czech pilsner.
