COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden in color with a dry hop floral aroma and intense hop bitterness supported by a big malty backbone which culminates into a hedonistic mouthfeel. Yee haw!

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Picked it up mainly out of curiosity after having had Love and Hoppiness, and for the sweet bottle, but I’m glad I did. Golden, hazy pour. Aroma is spicy hops. I can’t put my finger on the strain, but there’s something German and something American in there. Malt is coming through, too. Flavor is crisply hoppy and pleasantly bitter, not overpowering. The malt is just a solid pilsner malt. Far less alcohol than I expected and a wonderfully clean finish. Overpriced, but good; I’d drink it more often in a cheaper bottle.

Straw. A pilsner w bite...malty. I’m surprised this is almost 9%...I would have guessed half that. On tap at track town.

Salmoniform (263) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Straw hue with nice white head. Aroma is clean, slight hay, spicy hops, ethanol, faint juniper-like undertone. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and great carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice easy bitterness in the following and CO2 bite in the finish mixed with ethanol. Overall this is a fantastic pils.

JStax (2622) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Ceramic swingtop 750 ml bottle poured into a footed pilsener glass. Pours a bright, hazy copper with a big, fluffy white head of foam. Pretty good retention. The aroma has notes of candied grapefruit peel and pine. Taste has a thicker pine bitterness that moves to a juicy, lemon citrus sweetness. The alcohol is a touch noticeable toward the finish. Light to medium body. Low to medium carbonation.
