COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wonderful hoppy lager is a new addition to our ever-expanding Exponential (Seasonal) Series. The Crystal hops give it a clean spice while the Calypso hops give it a pleasant, almost fruity aroma. Easy to drink, perfect for a summer day out.

Release #7. Pours a cloudy pale golden yellow color with a two finger, frothy white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Really good retention with chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Floral aroma with spicy, earthy hops, pale malt and light fruit notes. Grassy with some straw and pine followed by hints of apple, pear, alcohol, bread and biscuit. The nose reminds me of a lightly hopped pilsner. Medium bodied with a crisp, spicy hop bite up front that provides some dry bitterness which lingers over the sweeter notes into a dry finish. Earthy and slightly resinous with some grassy pine flavor followed by some light fruit and pilsner malt. Hints of hay, biscuit and grainy cracker give this beer a nice pale malt backbone that counters the other flavors. Not overly complex but well balanced, flavorful and easy to drink.

Blairgus (2687) - California, USA - SEP 28, 2012
29 sept 2012, bottle. Pale yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is skunky, and slightly sweet. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Reminds me of smarties candy. Light lemon rind and lager malt.

maxwelldeux (3761) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a yellow color with a small white head. I get a little floral-citrusy nose on this. Easy taste, crisp. There’s a little bite to it, and it’s very bubbly on the palate. One of the better lagers, in my opinion.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bomber, release #7. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up lemon rind, cloves, and light white pepper over soft toasted grains and a pinch of honey.. not super complex, but very well presented. The flavor opened with a nice lemon and floral hop bite, with bready malts and a bit of honey supporting.. fresh hoppage around and through the crisp, refreshing finish.. tasty stuff. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation to keep it moving through the palate.. very nice spice and bitterness from the hops.. I could drink a whole lot of this.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 5, 2012
8/5/12 notes: Bottle. Beautiful clean straw gold body, fluffy white head with good retention. Aroma is a tasteful yet pungent array of grassy and floral notes. Mouthfeel is clean, light, dry to the finish. Flavor ups the typical pilsner array of noble hops and bready malts with clear expressions of cut grass, light pith, and pressed garden flowers, finishing with refreshing bitterness. Bit of fruity esters probably from fermentation are the only (minor) issue I could identify; a superb summer drink.

Pailhead (5037) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of light fruit, grass, and a hint of grain. It pours a mostly transparent light yellow with a touch of haze and a one finger soapy white head with decent retention. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with some light fruit and a touch of citrus. The finish has light-moderate grassy bitterness and a hint of lemon. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice and refreshing lager. Too bad it’s not available in more "affordable" 6-packs.

Terminus (3272) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle-purchased at the brewery-Aug 2012-pours straw yellow with effervescent carbonation with a nice spritzy champagne white head. nose is very nice-big spicy hops, german lager yeast tones, pale malt grains (cereal) and very clean! Flavors follow suit-nice spicy hops, sweet pale malt grains, firm yet mild bitterness (spicy hops)-these dont taste american at all! Very well done! this is the perfect hot day beer! I need more of this stuff. Long grainy and spicy hop finish. Fantastic example of the style-less sweet than Shift with more hops.
