I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a hoppy Pils, or a "Light" IPA. The brewery's website just lists this as part of their "Blended Series", and was of minimal help (as usual). If anyone has more info please add.
Served in straight pint glass. Poured a hazy yellow color with about 1/2 inch of white head that had very good retention and moderate lacing.
The aroma was nicely grainy, like you'd expect from a good Pils, but with an abundance of floral hops as the dominant factor. There was just a slight citrus hop aroma showing through as well. The tastes started out the same way, floral and citrus hops on top of nice grains, but then at the back of the tongue, the beer tasted more like a traditional Czech Pils than the IPA it was like at the front.
The body was smooth, clean and light. Drinkability was pretty good, my first pint was gone in less than 10 minutes, and I'll be ordering more. Overall, even though I'm a bit confused by what the brewer was trying to accomplish with this brew (and again, perhaps some on-line info would help), I enjoyed it. Worth trying if you see it.
Serving type: on-tap
