A little to hoppy for my taste. Not a fan of hops in everything like a Pilsner.

All I'm getting is a bitter and bitey finish that throwing this beer off. If there were more sweet or bready flavors to mix in a blend with the bitter that would be fine, but its really rather void in flavor with a bitter finish. West coast IPA fans may be ok with this, but I'd rather not revisit.

An interesting take on the pilsener/IPA concept. Highly drinkable and clean tasting. Not overly memorable but worth the try. Could use more distinct flavouring.

Awesome beer. Unusual to have a beer that tastes this good to leave a positive impression that I think tastes better than it smells.
