Pure Project In Search of Balance
What the brewers say
This unfiltered pilsner is built on German Weyermann Barke Pilsner malt and dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Wai-iti hops from New Zealand.
What our panel thought
Grapefruit and lemon-citrus notes play off diesel and dank pine for unique but interesting nose. Compelling flavor profile with hints of cucumber, green onion, and dank pine. Wouldn't have guessed this was a pilsner if I closed my eyes. Balanced bitterness. Clean and crisp lager battles with brash and bold hops.
What our editors thought
Sharply fragrant New Zealand hop aroma evokes tropical fruit with overtones of woody herbs and diesel. The sip is a touch sweet, but the bitterness has a dankness that cuts through it. New school, without sacrificing the pilsner essence.
