Poured into my pint as a light golden-in-appearance beer with minimal visible carbonation and a decent white header. Some lacing.
Smells of some tropical fruit as far as some light hops in the nose, a hint of sweet cherries.
This tastes just as I could have hoped after smelling it. Red-cherry-tropical fruit, light bread and sweet malts. Great balance with the pilsner malts and Oregon hops. Some bitterness, and a floral/ herbal aspect. Tasty.
Medium-thin bodied and nicely carbonated, creamy.
This was very nice. With a craft market saturated with hop-forward ipa's , this offers a satisfying fix of hops that are used in a refreshing way in pils fashion.

Looks like this beer isn't retired any more.... An excellent pils! Never knew one could use cascade hops to do a good pilsner, but this proves Full Sail at least, can. Really a terrific beer, excellent for hot weather, or any time.

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.
