What the brewers say

“Pilsner, dry hopped with Citra. Crisp, smooth Pilsner with subtle citrus hops character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pleasant rich and complex hops aroma with lemon, orange, pine, peppercorn. Light, sweet bready malt character is hard to find behind the hops.”

Flavor: “Smooth mouthfeel and body. Some nice cracker-like malt sweetness followed by some citrus-fruit character. Some lemon. Some spice notes add complexity. Bitterness balances well throughout the taste. Fruity. The carbonation adds to the taste. Refreshing and crisp. Restrained bitterness on the finish leaves you with lingering light fruit and spice character.”

Overall: “A very nice beer. The dry hopping adds complexity throughout but isn’t heavy handed or out of balance with the underlying beer. IPL meets sessionable Pilsner meets session pale ale. A pleasantly crisp and refreshing beer with a distinctive fruity hops character and a soft finish.”
