Canned ~8 weeks ago.

L -- Pours a moderately hazed golden straw color with a two-finger white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Some retention and lacing
S -- Very well done here. Lots of juicy tropical fruits, including that nice garlicy pungency that comes with particularly well executed dry-hopping. Also a little bubblegum. I guessed mosaic was prevalent in the dry hopping given the fabulous aroma, but after consulting their site I've learned it's a combination of citra and chinook with simcoe and centennial added during the dry-hop. Nice!
T -- Starts with orange flesh and peel, followed by a decent amount of herbaceous and grassy notes. Crackery malts. Finish has a restrained, earthy character
F -- Mouthfeel is a little off, I think primarily because of a clashing of the light pilsner mouthfeel alongside the heavy hopping that's going on here. The end result is a fairly intense flavor palate that feels pretty watery. Medium+ carb
O -- A great offering from Peak Organic that I would definitely have again. More of an APA/IPL than a pilsner, but who cares? At 8-weeks-old this still has a remarkably fresh character to it. At two weeks fresh it must be absolutely stupendous

canned JUN 26th.

pours way too hazy for a pilsner, but hey what are guidelines these days? flavor is fairly fruity, nice citrus notes, biscuit grain, clean finish. nothing too 'pilsner' esque, but rather a mild IPA. i think that might have been the point here to some extent and I get that, but overall a good beer that is very easy to drink.

16 oz. can dated 26 Jun 17

Pours foggy hazy gold with a creamy white foam head. Smells like lychee, peach, dark berry, lemon, grapefruit, orange citrus, juicy pear, apple, grapes, honey crackery pilsner malts, some woody minty spice, with floral dank resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like lychee, peach, dark berry, lemon, grapefruit, orange citrus, juicy pears, apple, grapes, honey crackery pilsner malts, some woody minty spice, with floral dank resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate smooth carbonation. Overall a really nice hoppy pilsner.

Pours a very hazy golden which is a negative in a pilsner to me, but this is "a wicked dry hopped pilsner" so I guess I'll allow it. You can smell the berries on the nose. It's very prominent. Some berry character up front with a birch bark minty finish. It's well done, but I'm not crazy about the flavor profile.

Hoppy forward but in balance. Malty and chewy. Great IPL.

Unfortunately my can of Super Fresh was less than super fresh. Canned 3/9/17, purchased (not by myself) and consumed (by myself) 6-14-17. Not bad for 3 months old but the aromatic hop qualities that other reviewers have mentioned were much diminished. Initially poured with a nice head which faded away completely. I'd be curious to try this beer with under a month of age on it.

Poured from 16oz can into tulip. Pours a beautiful slightly transparent, soft orange color. Small head leaves some nice lacing. On the nose I get a burst of fresh tropical fruits followed up by a bit of a grassy smell. There is a faint cracker malt presence as well. The taste follows right where the nose leaves off..I get fresh, citrusy hops up front, a very smooth malt middle, and a soft hop finish at the end. Excellent beer. I'd get this again in a heartbeat. Well done, Peak.
