Notes: This is Fresh Cut's assertive big brother. A wicked dry-hopped pilsner. Dripping with juicy, citrus hop character, this beer is a blast of deliciousness. We hope you enjoy.

Poured a cloudy yellow-gold body with lace sheath ring down glass. Mild, hoppy, lager-esque aroma. Clean, crisp, light beer that balances a dry, hoppy crispness with a pils malt sweetness and clean finish. ABV does not seem nearly as high as listed and very easy to drink beer.

Appearance – Half finger head on a yellow, very slightly hazy body.

Aroma – Grapefruit and white pine. Sure was right about being heavy on hops.

Taste – Light bitterness, hop resins, and lighter malts. Not very complex.

Mouthfeel – Light and refreshing.

Overall – I thought there would be more layers to the flavor. Not a bad beer but somewhat average.

Big, bold, grassy aroma. Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Clean malt flavor going to tropical fruit, pine, and grass notes. A bit full bodied for a pilsner, but it is an imperial one. Overall, a very nice example of the style.

Tallboy poured into a Pilsner glass. Paired with tofu parm and Brussels sprouts.

Appearance: A hazy straw with a big foaming white head.

Aroma: Well, it’s super fresh. Hops, cut grass, spring leaves. VERY clean.

Taste: Floral, hoppy, grassy, full of bite. Some fruit, somewhat tropical. Herbaceous.

Mouthfeel: Perfect for style. Super drinkable at 7+.

Overall: A powerhouse. One of the best pilsners in New England. Get it.

16oz can into a pint glass. packaged 10/24/17, so 2 months old (not exactly "super" fresh)

Hazy yellow-orange body, small but persistent white head leaving excellent lacing.

Faintly fruity aroma.

Good tasting beer. doesn't really come off as a pilsener though. good hop bite, slight fruity and cattiness. dryish too.

well over medium on the mouth, slightly foamy. sour and bitter on the finish.

overall, i like the taste of the beer, but even at 2 moths old, it comes off as more of a pale ale than a pilsener.

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.

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.

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.
