22 oz. bomber poured into pilsener

L: perfect ... 100% clear yellow/pale gold with loads of bubbles in the column and a 1-inch sticky head of foam that laces like crazy

S: floral hops, no malt ... not pilsener-like at all, just a huge chunk of bitter/flowery hops

T: almost but not quite like an oniony American pale ale ... plenty of good hop taste, some floral, some greenish, but next to no malt presence

F: just a shade watery but still good, loads of carbonation

O: if Full Sail had labeled this an APA, I might've given it 4+s across. as a pilsener, it does what most experimental American brews do -- miss the mark big time. it's all hops, no malt, and that's not what a pilsener is. So it's a fine brew in a vacuum, easily worth drinking, but it's a major disappointment for a German pilsener.

we've probably reached the point where we need an "American pilsener" style, so brews like this can compete amongst each other for review/ratings and not against the classics.

AMAZING....... Period. If your looking to get into IPA's (or want an IPA feel without the bitterness of an IPA) this is the way to go!!!!!!!! Simply amazing!!!!!

Crisp, well-balanced flavor profile. Decent citrus profile with a light malt backing. Highly drinkable.
