Foothills Brewing Hop of the Month Polaris Pilsner

It’s Foothills Hop of the Month time, this is Polaris Pilsner, 5.3% ABV with 58 IBU (International Bittering Units). Polaris is a very young (2012) German Varietal with resin glands that produce high alpha acid levels. Polaris Pilsner pours a bright hazy golden color with a big three finger bright white fluffy head. The aroma is slightly minty with some herbal and bitter notes. Now the taste, there is a nice floral note on the front with some hop resin notes. The middle is nice hop character with a slight acidic hop note with a faint mint flavor. The back has about the same as the middle but just not as full and the hop bitterness jumps out and bites a bit towards the very end. The mouth feel is light and Polaris has a nice hoppy floral finish with a bitter earthy sweet after taste. This is good but not as good as last month but really close. I say that Foothills Brewing Hop of the Month Polaris Pilsner is an A-. It has a lot of flavor. I recommend Polaris Pilsner. Try it and you will like it. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
