(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer has a white spongy thick head that sits on a slightly hazy warm yellow body with a few strands of tiny bubbles launching from the base of the glass.

S- This beer has a smooth green hop aroma with a dark earthy hint to it. There is also some notes of pine resin at the finish.

T- the pine hops with noble hop flavors has some nice depth with notes of grapefruit coming through as it warms. There is a soft light malt note that is pretty dry and quickly covered up by a nice hop pucker in the finish.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a faint alcohol heat in the finish that enhances the hop bitterness nicely.

D- This beer has a good depth to the hop flavor and it is nice to see noble and American hops used together. The malts are very light in flavor but they support the hops.

Served in a pint glass at Flossmoor Station 1/27/07.

A: Very pale, almost pilsner-like in color (they used German pilsner malts to brew this). Crystal clear.

S: Appealing aromas of grapefruit and grass clippings.

T: Big grapefruit rush tempered by a mild malt backing. That is then followed by some more tart citrus and then earthy grass clippings.

M: Smooth at first with a nice dry on the tongue finish.

D: This one could be enjoyed all day. An interesting "what if" beer (what if a german brewmaster brewed an american IPA using german sourced malt and german and american sourced hops?)
