Crystal-clear dark amber body with a thick, chunky, white head; lots of clumps of foam and lacing on the glass. Nice mixture of cereal grain and pine and citrus hop aroma. The taste is light in the malt flavors with a heavier focus on hop bitterness; light, honey dew melon fruitiness. Medium bodied with a crisp, clean, dry finish.

This beer goes down easily with its lager lightness and relatively mild malt grain flavors. The hop aroma and flavor character provide the real character and uniqueness to this brew. It's not as aggressively hoppy like a West coast IPA nor as smooth as a classic Czech or German styled pilsner yet does a good job of combining these styles in an approachable way. No, it probably won't blow anyone's mind who likes a classic IPA or pilsner style by itself (well, maybe the pilsner lovers may find more in common with this hybrid brew), yet I'd wager most people wouldn't turn down having another if given a chance. Fine and refreshing.
