look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

A: Pale yellow, clear, and a nice white head on top.

S: Crisp with a lovely hop aroma. Light and floral with grapefruit overtones. Light malt aroma, but the hop definitely take the lead.

T: The hops are subtly, but nice. Slight tropical fruit, as well as grapefruit. The malt character is very subdued. With the clean finish, and slightly higher bitterness, this drinks like a water pale ale.

M: Thin, with very high carbonation. There is a little bit of linger in the finish from the hops.

O: Overall it is light, crispy and has a touch of zing. I appreciate that they are trying to showcase a new hop, but the hops upstage the style. Still a good beer, and would be great for hot days.

Light and clear in color, decent head, good lacing. I was a little hesitant, having tried other pilseners that were over-hopped. This is a good pilsener, dry and moderately hoppy, slightly toasty, well balanced. A very good product, good for a summer day. I would drink it again.
