A - Pours a medium gold, medium fluffy white head, no lacing.
S - Lager yeast, a light citrus, pepper, a little fresh bread.
T - Biscuit malt, yeast, baking flour.
M - Buttery texture
O - This is a pretty bad miss at the target, there's essentially no real good hop quality at all in this beer, especially flavor.

3.45/5 rDev -4.7%

500ml bottle (I believe the date is 09/16/13, but difficult to read) poured into an Idle Hands tulip.
A - Pours a pale straw colored gold, decent clarity, tall two finger cap of fluffy white foam that falls slowly over a couple of minutes and some nice webs of lacing on the glass. Nice looking beer.
S - Very earthy aroma, not much complexity...a bit grassy, very mildly citrusy in the background.
T - Crisp bitterness, earthy hop flavors, a touch medicinal in its bitter quality. Very dry. I would describe this almost as an overhopped pilsner. A bit grainy, a touch of phenols. Not well balanced at all - just feels wrong. Not undrinkable, but I'm not eagerly reaching for my glass for the next sip either.
M - Medium bodied and a firm higher than average carbonation. Quite pilsner-like in feel with an overabundance of hops that seem a bit out of place.
O - I am a big fan of Jack's Abby and until now, everything that I have sampled from them. This one really isn't hitting the mark for me tho. I find it out of balance and lacking in complexity/nuances. The hops are quite earthy, a touch medicinal, sharp in bitterness and don't play well off of the grainy malt base. Made with local hops, so varietal choice is low...I think the varieties used don't work well in this beer. Personal preference maybe, but not working that well for me.
