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.

22 picked up at the COOP yesterday for I think $4ish... Sorta expensive for what it is, but it is well made... Pours a slight hazy straw golden with a decent white head and little lacing. Nose shows bigger than expected hoppiness, but it works well with the light background maltiness... hops are smell like cut grass and light citrus zest. Flavor mirrors the aromas nearly perfectly with a bit of an upfront bitter bit that adds to the drinkability in my opinion. Body is light and carbonation is spot-on where it should be. If this was in a reasonably priced 6-pack, I would buy it all the time in this Boise heat. It is a near perfect summer quaffer for somebody that like lagers and want more of a hop bite.

Six pack from HomeBrewStuff. Nice alternative to session IPAs and APAs. Light with mild hoppiness, clear golden with soft, foamy white head. Mostly lager characteristics in aroma and taste, with hop bitterness at the tail end. Perfect summer brew.

Poured from a bottle. Interesting pour. No had, and a clear yellowish appearance. Grapefruit aroma. Stronger smell than taste -- actually kind of weak.

Aroma of grain and hops, pours a hazy yellow with moderate carbonation not much of a head. Light crisp taste with hints of grains and hops. Refreshing with a light body and a slightly dry finish.

Can in Baltimore. Hazy yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma is grainy, some crispy hops, a hint of straw and somewhat peppery. Flavor is slightly bitter, quite watery, slightly spiced and well drinkable. Drink cold on a very hot day.

Pretty good, not really as hoppy as I expected but itís definitely crushable. Lots of grassy, fruity aroma. I also got V8 for some reason which was really odd and Iím glad it went away and never came back. Super refreshing with minimal bitterness but enough to keep things interesting. It tastes like a budweiser who actually cared about tasting good and using quality ingredients. I think these pils lager ipl ipa-lager-pils-combos are pretty cool and gives some variety to more sessionable beers. This is super easy to drink like I could crush a six pack and not think twice. Good stuff glad I tried it!

12oz can poured into a Shaker at 42į. Color is a clear light yellow with a very faint haze. Carbonation is low giving it a thin tight wisp of a head. Aroma is sweet with notes of honey and a touch of hops. It has a light body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is light and crisp with a little malt showing giving some sweetness then some hop spice comes in with lemon citrus notes. After taste is dry and mildly bitter. Overall itís a very easy drinking brew that is well balanced, just not something I would go out and buy again.

VeinAle (123) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2015
From 12oz can, random pick for some soccer tailgating. Crisp easy drinking flavorful lager. Good hop flavor for those IPA nerds, good go to for when you donít want a session IPA and need something shareable with macro drinkers.

after4ever (6688) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Draft at sb. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a loose sudsy white head. Lots of lace. Dried leaves, egg yolks, and dried pine needles on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty nuts, dried pine needles, egg yolks, and dried leaves on the mid palate. Very dry resin on the finish. The yeast could have used more time and the hop flavors could be clearer.
