3.59/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured a gorgeous gold with lots of carbonation and great head retention. Looks almost like a more vibrantly colored ginger ale. Actually leaves a decent amount of lacing for what it is.

S - Very vibrant hop aroma, some hints of citrus and fresh lemon. Hints of lemon zest, some corniness, and a whole mesh of flowery aromas. Smells like spring.

T - Not bad at all for the style. Very refreshing, with just the right measure of hops and citrus notes. A few hop notes greet the first sip, they're washed away by a zesty lemon-orange burst, and finished off with some hints of pine, corn cereal, and sugar cookie.

M - Smooth and slippery, very smooth. Just a hint of stickiness that lets the hop and citrus aromas linger for just the right amount of time.

O - Very refreshing and invigorating! Leinenkugel's has definitely put forth a very refreshing and drinkable spring beer. I can literally taste spring. It's nothing that I would write home about, but it is definitely a beer I'll drink again whenever I have a chance to!

Hoppin' Helles is probably the most disappointing Leinenkugel effort I've experienced thus far. It bears that same sort of grassiness that I didn't like about Guinness's Harp Lager and that same kind of bitterness I find prevalent in many domestic beers. Not to mention, I always categorized Leinenkugel for its flavors, be them lemon, orange, lemon berry, or simply just refreshing and rather intoxicating hops, but Hoppin' Helles overdoes it to the point where the flavor is more of a nuisance than a presence. Definitely the weakest of Leinenkugel's otherwise surprisingly good line of beers.
