A: Poured hazy into a pint glass, the color being a dark straw color, with an orange tinge. Two fingered head was obtained, receded slowly, and a tremendous amount of lacing was left on the glass.
S: Hoppy! Sweet smelling malts, mild grass and citrus notes were also present.
T: Dominating hops presence, similar to an IPA. The citrus taste is also present in the form of orange peel. The beer is moderately sweet, less than I was expecting.
M: Alcohol was covered by the hops in the mouth, but is evident in the stomach. Medium bodied with a drying finish, leaves that bitter hops taste in your mouth.
D: I love pilsners, but this isn't really a sessionable beer. But the drying finish does help me to keep drinking and want more!
