On tap at the Bruery. Aroma has a nice, crisp, fairly strong citrus hop character with light tropical fruit and pine resin. Light grain malt notes and clean yeast character. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head with decent retention. Medium light lacing and light legs. Light grain character in the flavor with hints of biscuit and toasted bread. Moderate hop bitterness with moderate hop notes of citrus, pine resin and a touch of wood and floral hop notes. Light alcohol spice and clean yeast. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice, hoppy imperial lager. I would prefer fruitier hop notes, especially in the flavor but its really easy drinking.

On draft. Aroma of hops, then a bit of the more familiar lager. Hmm! Flavor is of a burst of hops, pilsner style, then some juicy wet grass. Finishes sticky. Nice!

"Te description does not really reflect the greatness that was this brew. This is Pliny in lager form plain and simple. But for a slightly lighter feel (and maaaaybe a tiny tiny bit lighter but otherwise identical aroma and flavor) you can just about copy and paste the Pliny reviews over here. Absolutely stunned by this one."

Draft pour at the Toronado tasting event. Pours a super cloudy yellow color. Bitter floral hop aroma. Really hoppy lager with a decent bitter finish. This is a good beer for sure, but wouldn’t really call it great. Enjoyed it for sure.

czar (4531) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
on tap at black back, waterbury. unclear bright golden pour with a creamy and ffrothy whtie head offering excellent retention and strong lacing. bright citrus, whole cones, herbal-grassy nobleness, gentle pine, weed, very lightly toasted maltiness - specialty, lagering fruitiness surprisingly making its way through the massive fragrant hop bill - peaches, apricots, clementines. average carbonation, light body - oily, surprisingly dry and crisp citrusy-herbal-grassy finish. balanced and very tasty. my first non-BA or perhaps hoppy lower abv brew from the bruery - for the third time, i’m surprised if not flabbergasted. dangerous drinkability.

Maxbier (320) - Maryland, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Hazy golden yellow with tan head. Tap. Clean citrus aroma. Slightly sweet juicy malt flavors. Crisp lager with clean hoppy citrus finish. Pleasure to drink from start to finish.

Beer Bloggers Conference - San Diego - Big hoppy lager. I get the hops I get the lager. It is rich full of hoppy flavors.

AirForceHops (3308) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Draft @ Good Karma, San Jose. Light haze in a gold liquid. Aroma is big citrus and hints of cat pee. Citra hops? Am I right with the Citra? Lots of fruit aromas. Body and mouthfeel is right for the style, light bitterness. The flavor is rather good for the style. Lots of fruity citrus balanced with biscuit / dough malt. Crisp finish with nice tropical fruit flavor. Really simple to drink could border on the IPA style.

hopwine (357) - Bend, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Floral nectar nose, light bready malts hiding in background. Strong herbaceous and floral hops start the flavor off, followed by layers of citrus, cracker, biscuit, and a sticky, resinous, dank finish. Seriously phenomenal on every level imaginable.
