Just like you, but different
Beer club beer, a day late and a story later, this is a beer that might more properly be called the Sunshine Sunrise Project Pipeline Pilsner. Of course.
a shallow bank
5% ABV, and 30IBU things, this 500ml bottle of beer is about
Like a solid groundswell hitting a shallow bank, our Kiwi pilsner combines an old world malt with a selection of New Zealand hops to produce a powerful pulse of flavor.
Named after one of our favorite local surf spots, our Pipeline Pilsner offers a crisp, refreshing lager base that allows the dominant hop flavors of grapefruit and pine to truly shine.
This is the ultimate post-surf lager… Pipeline Pilsner – The greenroom of beers!!!
So, What could possibly go wrong? Well “The greenroom” of beers (that’ a surfer reference) and a pretty big sell, so this is either going to be the bestest pilsner ever or a pipe dream (See what I did there ?).
There’s a lot of hops in that, it’s a cracker of an aroma on opening, very nice.
That’s a lovely bite of hop on first sup. lovely oily feel too, odd way to describe it, but that’s what it seems like.
Certainly a lot of hop flavour has been crammed into this, and why should I have doubted that this would be the case?
Lovely aroma that wafts up as you sup this too, so you get a small ht of that hop oil aroma and you then get a sip and the hop bite to match, which is something I quite like.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 9 of its things from the thing. Glorious aroma, lovely bite to go with it, smooth not edgy, refreshing and with a lovely overall taste.
