look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy golden straw color with a white, finger width head. Average retention. A fair amount of spotty lacing.

Smell - Aroma of strong citrus hop notes, slightly grassy, and with hints of grain.

Taste - Starts grainy and with a moderate citrus hop, but by mid-taste a high hop bitterness, evoking thoughts of grass and Rio Star Texas grapefruit peel, takes hold and sky rockets this pilsener into pure hop bomb territory. Finishes with that lingering grapefruit bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Finishes crisp and somewhat dry.

Overall - Wasn't sure what to think of it the first few sips, but as it warmed it really grew on me. Great representation of the style. Reminiscent of the Rogue Uber Pils that seems to have gone the way of the dodo.
