Light lager appearance but it is tricky because the strong hops smell and taste make it almost American Pale like. It is a nice complex larger if you like the flavor of an IPA with the harsher bitters. This is my favorite fridge beer (when I can find it).

I am just a beer-adding machine today, I guess. From the website:

"This refreshing continental-style pils has a light body combined with a pronounced noble hop aroma and a crisp dry finish. This is the perfect beer for easy flavorful drinking. Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Jinx Proof tattoo in Washington D.C"

Pours soapy, dark gold. Filtered and glistening with a small white head.

Smells deep and bitter, like a good dortmunder--weeds, thick caramel malt, sweeter hops. Bontanical and planty, a little bit, kind like a keller mixed with a dortmunder...

Flavor is the same as the nose, but more intense. Starts ouf with fabulous pilsener complexities, roundly dry and bitter. Ends with a sweet balance from a finish which is like walking through a hayfield at dawn.

Thanks to my girlfriend for bringing this to me in Boston!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsener- pours a clear golden straw color with one finger of creamy white head, decent retention, no lacing.

Smells like sweet barley mostly and some noble hop notes.

Tastes great- lots of pale malted barley flavor up front, accentuated by noble hop bitterness. A little banana. Goes back and forth between malt and hops to finish semi-dry. Long nice finish.

Mouthfeel is pretty good- medium light bodied with moderate to full carbonation. It's a little chewy but in general is refreshing. I love everything I've had by three floyds and jinx proof is no exception.

Bomber poured into a pint glass. This is a solid golden color, fizzy with very little head. Smells include light caramel and some grassiness. Taste is grainy with a sweet finish. Alcohol is fairly low but somewhat noticeable.

This is another very solid summer session beer. Not too exciting, but very good nonetheless.

A- Pours a crystal clear golden color with a nice white head. Head has good retention and leaves some really nice layered lacing.

S- Smell is pretty grainy and bready. With a touch of floral hops. Maybe Noble hops I'm not sure.

T- I went into this one with pretty much no expectations and this one was pretty solid. Taste is very bready, caramel malts, and hops in the rear. Not nearly as hop forward as other Three Floyds beers. A nice taste of apples and grapes in here as well. A very solid brew for sure.

M- Lighter side of medium and good amount of carbonation.

O- Very easy to drink and I wish I had some more of this one.
