Yeah, pils or ipa?
Has a light hoppy taste along with some citrus notes. Extremely refreshing on a hot summer day

Tried a random craft beer 12 pack. Got this. Wasn't let down, but wasn't impressed.

Gold in color with excellent clarity. A half inch of frothy foam is present. Brussels lacing. Mild aroma of citrus hops and and light malt greet me. There's a gentle malt backbone and an even more delicate citrus hop flavor. The mouth is light,crisp,and refreshing.

Appearance: Straw yellow. White head. Lots of bubbles rise to the surface. Good lacing on the glass.
Smell: Floral aroma. Some fruit; citrus rind and tangerine mostly.
Taste: Hops, but not overly bitter. Floral. Grapefruit rind, lemon pith. Some light breadiness but almost no discernible malt backbone. Not terribly complex, but nothing present that is unenjoyable.
Mouthfeel: Light, creamy, bubbly. Goes down easy, as a sessionable IPA should.

Overall: Enjoyable, quaffable, and you get a good dose of hops along with it.

Beautiful pale yellow color with just a hint of a green tint. The hop resins stick nicely to the glass and give the head a sudsy effect.

The smell and taste is great. The hops are assertive but well rounded and not too drying, they are just flavorful. Citrus-y, nice evenly drying notes throughout the length on the tongue. Full length and light body, with flavor remaining throughout the drink. Of course as a "Fractional IPA" (nice name for it, that's what it tastes like in the best of ways) it is best in the 50s, but really nice colder as well.
