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.

If you see hop in the name and expect something extreme you will be disappointed. That being said however, if you are expecting an easy drinking lager with American style hop overtones, you'll like this one. Easy on the palate, with a very light and refreshing flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy pale yellow pour with aroma of corn and cereal. Mostly corn and cereal flavor with some lemon grass. Decent.

Poured from can. Smells a bit sour when opened. Pale, cloudy yellow. Mild hops, more than a typical pale lager. Just an okay beer.

mcberko (14077) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2016
On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a clear pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma is very herbaceous, with lots of grassiness, herbal hops and crisp crackery notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of herbaceousness upfront, followed by grassy hops and crisp biscuity malt. Quite a lot of depth for a lager. Very nice stuff.

Solid lager, quite leafy, but really nothing to give it an edge. Lot better Lagers out there.

johnnnniee (3743) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Can from Acton Wine and Spirits. Pours a slightly hazy deep yellow color with a smallish bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Citrus earthy mineral spicy aromas and little else on the nose. Citrus and orange fruitiness in the flavor, lightly herbal or earthy . Faint bready maltiness, lingering hop bitterness. Somewhat reminds me of Tang at times. Different take on a lager interesting, but not enough for me to buy again.

tfontana (665) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle pour from Andover Liquors. Aroma is floral hops over European malt base. Appearance is very pale yellow with greenish tinge (sort of urine-like) with trace sparkle, 1/2 finger-width fleeting white head with fair lacing. Taste is traditional pilsner malty sweetness with fruity hops, but both are mild. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture and average to lively carbonation and crisp finish. Overall, a decent enough idea with hints of what it could be, but is pretty pedestrian.

Canned at Tin Can. Nothing special. Tad hoppier than your average lager. Not sure if have it again.

DuffMan (9500) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
Can. Medium gold, average white head. Grainy aroma, faint fruity undertones. The palate reflects the nose exactly. Moderately bitter finish. Underwhelming considering its name.

12oz can. Pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. Watery, grassy and bland. Not offensive but not all that good either. Meh.
