Light yellow colored lager like appearance fits the bill. 1/2" white head. Aroma was actually a weird mix of mild hops, lager yeast and I swear, wheat?

There was more bitterness than dry hopping despite commercial hand job claims otherwise. Bitter. Copper bitterness with lager yeast overcome.

Have never been a fan of their hoppy offerings, this one is no different.

From tasting notes. The brewer grafts an American hop bill onto a lager and produces a crisp, clean, refreshing hop forward beer that works. A floral, spicy, aroma with citrus and fruit notes melds with light pilsner malt scents. The hop citrus and fruit flavors work well with the light bread and grain lager background.
