Notes: May the darkness with you, find peace in the light. For the trappings of ghastly reminders are all around us. The latest in our merging of hallowed Pilsner with ominously forsaken IPA principles. Made from a blend of our favorite German Pils and dosed with Epiphany Craft Malt's Oats. Double dry-hopped with Strata and Grungiest, our new favorites from US and German hop-breeding programs.

Had poured from pint can, bottom stamped (apparently) canned on “23 JUL 2019,” into pilsner glass.

Oddly, pours slightly cloudy—ah, there are oats in this beer. The dry-hopping gives a surprisingly spicy and hugely fruity aroma, which add subtler but complex flavors to a clean pilsner with a sprightly finish.

A: Pours a relatively clear pale to medium golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thick film covering a little more than 75% of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of almost juicy tropical/honeydew melon + floral + citrus/grapefruit + tropical/passionfruit hops over the top of just shy of moderate aromas of bready + oat malts with a hint of grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of bready + oat malts with a hint of grainy sweetness. That is followed by hints of lager yeast. Finally there are moderate flavors of almost juicy tropical/honeydew melon + floral + citrus/grapefruit + tropical/passionfruit hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away relatively quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a very refreshingly crisp mouthfeel. Enjoyable - I like the DDH Pilsner in this case as the hops work really well with the Pilsner flavor profile.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that quickly settled down, leaving a small patch of bubbles on the surface in the center surrounded by lacing around it and down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of honeydew melon are present in the nose along with notes of floral hops.
T: The taste has flavors of basil and honeydew melon with hints of grapefruit. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The heavy dose of hops also contributes a bit of crispness to the mouthfeel.
O: This pilsener has a very interesting smell and taste due to the dry hopping. I particularly liked the combination of flavors in the taste.

3.74/5  rDev -7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16oz can, undated, into a 12oz glass with a little less than a fingers worth of head that drops to a thick white film and lingers at the first pour and then again with the lacing as the beverage is quaffed. Color is a pale golden and mostly clear with tiny carbonation coming up from the bottom of the glass. Nose is fresh hops reminiscent of a pale ale or IPA with notes of orange zest, cantaloupe and pine resin. Body is very light and carbonation is minimal - knocks back very easily. There’s a flavor that comes up a little abrupt on the finish—like unripened melon which didn’t hit me the right way. It’s easy to drink, but if you’re looking for a Pilsner, this really is more session IPA than crisp pils. I prefer more conventional definitions personally.
