What the brewers say

“Hops-forward German-style Pilsner showcasing Ariana hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Assertive hoppy aromas up front, floral and herbal with lemongrass, tangerine, honeysuckle, and pine hops notes. Malt plays second fiddle on the aroma. Clean ferment. Retronasal brings in some lemon and more pine.”

Flavor: “As on the aroma, the malt plays a backup role to the hops. Floral and spicy notes at first, but pine and lemon shine through quickly. Pronounced hops character that seems to bring some perceived sweetness to help the clean Pils malt balance the fairly high bitterness. Malt flavors of biscuit and bread hide somewhat in the background but are just enough to not let the complex and prominent hops flavors get out of control.”

Overall: “Complex yet balanced. A very hops-centric but clean beer. More in line with a very dry, clean pale ale than a traditional Pilsner, but still a great beer regardless of where you classify it.”
