Clear light gold with a vigorous white head.
Intense aromas are somewhat aggressively hoppy, with a pine and herbal profile. Reminded me slightly of Stone's IPA in this regard. There's also a background of stone fruit here, however.
Round and generously carbonated in the mouth, with the hops far more restrained than on the nose. They're there, for sure, but they're more suggestive than outright bitter. The texture of this brew, rather than the flavor, is actually dominant in the mouth. It's very round and generous, without being heavy or sweet.
Not like any other pilsner I've had. Smells like an IPA, tastes like...nothing else I've tasted, really. Highly drinkable and a pleasure to smell.
