look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a golden color with some haziness with a firm long lasting white head.

S - A burst of pine and citrus hops.

T - Citrus, particularly grapefruit as well as some pine with some malt in the background.

M - Very rich with excellent carbonation.

O - Really great hop flavor, especially in a beer with such moderate ABV. This is a great thirst quencher and I intend to use it as such.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Best by Aug 2014 at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of faint citrus
Head small (2 cm), white, creamy with small rocks, mostly diminishing into 3 mm layer
Lacing good – nearly complete rings
Body yellow with slight haze
Flavor starts as a typical lager, with the white grapefruit bitterness overriding the malt backbone. However, the hop presence is more marked than in the standard lager, ending in an astringent chalkiness.
Palate light to medium, watery, carbonation lively

A solid “meh”, not too exciting lager with a little more hops than most, but still not close to an IPA.

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

Pours a hazy golden yellow amber with a long lasting white head and lacing. Aroma and Taste of pine citrus hops, caramel malt, sweet fruity notes and mild bitterness, some light grapefruit tangy notes. A medium palate, crisp with moderate carbonation. Has a nice malt finish balance by pine citrus and slight tangy grapefruit notes. Has a bit of lager in it. Overall a good drinking brew.
