Can: Golden to orange color, low head. Aroma is mainly hoppy and fruity. Flavor is nice hoppy with notes of herbs, citrus, resin and grapefruit. Medium bitter finish. NIce hoppy IPA with much less malt character then others. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can to glass pint jar. Pours a clear yellow with a fluffy crisp white head. Lots of hop flavors going on of citrus and pine. It lacks depth of profile, though. There’s hop bitter, but there just isn’t that little touch of malt sweet to offset it. All around, pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Avery. Looks filtered, orange-tan. White head laces the glass. A solid hop backbone surrounded by a nice golden malt body. Displays some classic noble Pils character, but way more amped up. Well balanced, quite fresh.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice clear golden color.with mild carbonation. Has a nice citrus bouquet. Slight pineapple taste with butterscotch. A very dry aftertaste. Mediocre at best. I was expecting more from Avery brewing and I was quite disappointed.

(Draught) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grass, herbs, florals, light pine, and dustiness (make me want to sneeze). Flavor of grass, earthiness, biscuit, and grain with a dry finish.

(Draught at Avery - GABF) clear golden, effervescent bubbles, film of white head lasts a while. Nose of earth, citrus, orange, very mild butter and cilantro. Taste of butter, earth, English-style hops, bitter, and herbal. Buttery and odd linger, fine carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a nice golden color with a hint of orange and a dense white head.
S: A big tropical fruit aroma to this one. Lots of pineapple with some mango, grapefruit, and perhaps lemon. Some nice floral and grass notes as well, and a bready malt base.
T: The flavor follows the nose, for the most part. Fairly bitter, which was nice and helped to balance the strong fruit flavors contributed by the hops. Moderately bready from the malt with just a hint of sweetness.
M: The body is a bit lighter than an IPA, but a bit fuller than your typical pale lager. A lively carbonation goes with it.
D: This style of really hoppy lager works for me. The fairly light base lager is a great palate for intense hopping.
