4.01/5 rDev +2%
Bottled on 1/31/14, consumed on 4/3/14.
A: Poured from the bottle into a pilsner glass. Body is clear, pale straw-yellow with a small (half-finger) white head. Prodigious amount of rising bubbles. Some splotchy lacing left behind.
S: Cereal grains, grassy, floral and perfumey hops. And a surprising fruitiness.
T: Again, I'm surprised by the fruitiness. It's light, but there's definitely a more fruity aspect to this than expected. Modest light grains, lemony citrus and a touch of grassiness that lingers in the aftertaste along with a bit of lemon zest-type bitterness.
M: Active carbonation; body is on the lighter side of medium. Finishes with a modest crispness. This would be a good, refreshing quaffer on a hot summer day.
O: Solid. A nice clean pilsner with some slightly different flavor profiles.

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.

Poured into a pilsener glass, bottled on 2/10/14
A- pours a crystal clear pale straw color with bubbles shooting to the top, creating a small fizzy white head that has good retention
S- classic pilsener malt aroma with notes of toasted grains, yeasty bread, very clean bill. Floral and grassy hops with a hint of lemon peel on the back end
T- clean malt is complimented by floral hops, lemon grass, and a hint of earthy yeast. Slightly sweet mid-palate leads to a toasted malt linger with more floral hop on a clean finish
M- light body with moderate carbonation produces a foamy mouthfeel and a smooth & crisp dry finish. Drinkability is through the roof
O- I'm usually not a big pils fan, but this was so clean and drinkable with the perfect amount of hops. I wish this was available in my area as this would quickly become my go-to warm weather beer. This bottle went down way too fast
