This 5.2% ABV hoppy pilsner was made in collaborat with Firestone Walker of Paso Robles, California. It uses Sierra Nevada's famous hop torpedo to inject the flavor of New Zealand hops into this pilsner.
The beer pours a clear yellow and golden. There is a tall head of fizzy, yet thick, white foam. The aroma is straw, flowers, golden grain, a touch of honey, and jasmine. The taste follows the aromas directly, sweet, yet not, bitter, yet smooth, tons of jasmine-like notes that finish with a citrus fruitiness. There is a fairly strong bitterness on the finish, dry, but again, smooth. This is incredibly good and very refreshing.
