4.25/5 rDev +5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Bright, clear gold with a thin soapy head. Good lacing.
Smell: Spicy, herbal hops and a note of citrus as well. A touch of malt sweetness and clean yeast, but the hops steal the show.
Taste: Strong bitterness up front followed by a strong spicy and herbal hop character with some citrusy notes on the finish. The malt helps cut some of the bitterness by adding a sweet, peachy breadiness and slight toastiness, but the hops are incredibly intrusive. The hop character is explosive!
Mouthfeel: Very thin, as with all in the style, but does have a nice carbonation pop that dries out the mouth and lets the hop flavors linger.
Overall: A truly epic lager, an absolutely huge noble hop character that has gone unrivaled by anything past my taste buds. The balance is way off, and many will find it off-putting, but if hops and sessionability are what you want, then this will do the trick. It makes an excellent change of flavor for any of you who want an overly hopped beer that has a totally unique character.

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.
Serving type: on-tap
