A solid beer. Extremely smooth and drinkable. Very crisp and clean on the taste, with a bit of hoppy grapefruit goodness on the back end.

Good lagers are my simple pleasure and this is a great hoppy lager with Southern Hemi hops, which are some of my favorite. I am drinking the bottle 1.5 months after bottling but I believe hoppy lagers fall off slower than certain IPA/DIPA culprits. Would I rather have a fresh IPA w Nelson, Galaxy, or other Southern Hemi hop? Yes. Is this a good, enjoyable hoppy lager? Most definitely.

Poured into glasses and shared. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with pure white head. Tons of dank and floral hop aroma. Awesome fruit, resin and flowers followed by slight malt sweetness all in a very dry and refreshing brew. I'd guess nearly all of the 105 stated IBUs are late additions and dry hop as there is little to no bitterness evident. Nice dry but not thin mouth feel. Overall, a really wonderful lager.
