This is a quite confusing beer. An IPA? really? It pours a pale straw yellow color with a pearl white head that leaves spidery lacing down the glass. The smell is pure pilsner, a spicy saaz hops smell with a bready malt background. From the looks and smell it could only be a pilsner. The taste is somewhat like a pilsner...starts with a bread-like biscuity malt and leads into a hoppy, spicy and slightly bitter taste and finishes dry, bitter and crisp. I can hardly believe this is an ale, much less an IPA. It's hoppy but this is definately a pilsner style beer. If it were labeled a "pilsner" or even a "lager" i would consider this a quality brew, even great but this appears to be the victim of sever mislabeling. Not bad by any stretch but most definaetly not an IPA, so be forwarned...a nice, complex hoppy brew but not really an IPA.

12 oz bottle into a pint stein.
A: Clear amber with about two fingers of foamy white head. Good lacing on the way down. Not quite the traditional IPA, but very nice appearance nonetheless.
S: Herbs, some citrus, and light floral hops. Not a traditional IPA smell, a lot lighter on hops. Very refreshing, almost "spring like."
T: Light hops present. This isn't an IPA. More citrus, like lemon and grapefruit. Again, I get the "spring and flowers theme." I like it, but it's NOT an IPA. At all. I didn't get the bitterness or astringency some others noted.
M: Light to medium body, not filling, but not watery either. Nothing like I'd think of when I think of an IPA.
I have no idea what they were going for here., It's not an IPA, but it's a good beer.
