Bottle pour. Clean amber. Large, off-white head. Some lacing. Reserved hops on nose - tropical fruit, maybe orange, hint of resin. Nothing off, just tame. Dry, medium body. Bitter throughout. Nice, full mouthfeel that lingers after each drink. Not sure on the Pilsener destination.

Some overpriced Bodega is Turtle Bay: Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma is lightly citrus hops and tropical fruit. Taste is pretty subdued. It was not as hoppy as I excepted. I thought it would be more of an IPL, but this was just a run of the mill lager with some more hops.
