Light citrus and fruit nose. Palate follows suit. Lots of nice carbonation going On. Pilsner im not sure because hops seem pretty high. Very well done and unique.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy translucent straw-gold with thick fluffy fine head. Smells of pineapple, grassy hops, resin, some alcohol. Very juicy aroma, esp. for a pilsener. Tastes of heavy dry hops, a touch of peppery clove. Bitter dry spicy finish. Has an underlying dryness like pilsener but lots of flavour and a nice slickness in the body that's unexpected for a pilsener. Very tasty, hoppy and drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy golden pour with big head. Pilsnery pineapple aroma with fruity hoppy hints too. Taste is big fruity hops with a bit of grassiness. Sweet. Followed by bitter hop finish - not as dry as you'd expect for a pilsner, and almost more like a bitter IPA. Very good - would definitely buy again.

Big big lager. Nice and hazy with soft diffuse head. Big hop profile as expected which just succeeds in tempering the slightly boozy sweetness. Overall great but not a patch on the BA version.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mooie oranjegele kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, citrus, bloemig en iets caramel. Smaakt lekker bitter en iets zoet, hop, orange en grapefruit. Goede bittere afdronk.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden with nice but short-lasting foamy head
Aroma is of pineapple
Taste - you get a clear, crisp and refreshing pilsner in your face and then BOOM the bitterness of the hops kick on the way down.
Light bodied with lively carbonation as you would expect from a pilsner. Bitter taste of the hops lingers around for a little while just to assert their presence!
Alcohol is present but nor overwhelming - well balanced.
I found this beer to be quite innovative as I have never tried anything like this before - I was not sure what to expect. I like pilsners and I like beers on the higher end of the IBU spectrum and this was appealing on both fronts.

330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours clear gold, extremely hoppy verging on syrupy with a colourful array of lemon, honey and pineapple and a nice tingling bitterness. Taste is robust, with every ounce of it’s 7.9% ABV coming through. Liked this a lot.

Flaske fra polets nettbutikk (en utmerket service fra polets side), hjemme: flott cremeskum som varer og vakker gylden lett uklar farge - alt som seg hør og bør, dette inviterer til å stikke nesen oppi. Forførerisk aroma av de amerikanske humlene som gir et tydelig citrus- og appelsinpreg. Mmmm. Smelter på tungen.. En perfekt blanding av bitterhet, maltsødme og en liten touch av beskhet som minner meg litt om saison. Omdreinningshastigheten holder seg eksemplarisk i bakgrunnen. Midt i blinken for min smak, og jeg er så glad for at jeg er alene hjemme i kveld og slipper å dele med noen. Kjøper gjerne flere av denne for å dele - skål!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly hazy golden colour with just a tint of orange. Thin, but ample, white head with excellent lacing. Strong aromas of pine, passion fruit and honey. Floral, with hints of grass, pepper and spice. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Lightly sweet initial flavours of a buscuity malt with notes of passion fruit and other tropical fruits. Dry finish, with bitter flavours of pine and lemon. Aftertaste is slightly spiced. Excellent beer.

Good beer, floral bouquet, in mouth the start is bitter, but few seconds after, the hop notes are equilibrated with sweet notes and refreshing aftertaste...
