The perfect blend of West Coast piney citrus hop aromas mixed with the crisp refreshment of a German Helles lager. This classic lager style is dry-hopped with copious amounts of Amarillo, Simcoe and Cascade hops to create a new-age West Coast craft lager like none other.

Clear orange pour from draft at jacks cannery in San Fran. White head. Musty earthy taste. Citrus and fruit notes but not dominant. Pretty average overall but easy to drink.

Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a super piney hop with pale malts in the back round. Flavor is clean dry malt with a bitter hop and an almost wintergreen mint like finish. Really hoppy even for an IPL and almost drinks like an IPA. I think I just found my highest rated lager.

Bottle at home. Pours a yellowish with one finger of white head. Aroma is slightly floral but with some pine hoppiness. Clean beer. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Toad in the Hole. Diamond bright deep gold with scant bubbles. Rubbery off note gets in the way of nicer Graham cracker and mango. Flavor tracks a similar path. A mite seltzery where I’m looking for a bit more chub.

Gold, clear, off-white head. Medium body, grainy-sweet malt, big spicy and floral hops, slight buttery note, interesting beer.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap @ Canyon Club: Poured a golden liquid with minimal head. Aroma was mild with a presence of hops but rather forgettable. Taste really delivered on the hops and I was impressed with how bitter and hoppy this lager tasted considering it wasn’t an IPA.

"Nicer than expected brew. Low ibu but very aromatic and floral hopping atop a nice crisp breast lager. This is a good beer to showcase what you can do with subtleties in a beer. Quite enjoyable."

Had to drink from the can because all my glasses are packed to move. Aroma is nice citrus y hop s. Flavor is also really good for a lager they nailed it! Nice sessionable bitterness.
