I still haven't tried anything but I just got lagering capability so hope to brew in the next few weeks.
I poked around the net trying to find some more information. Found this from the link below:

"the brew is dry-hopped with Crystal hops from Oregon with a clean malt profile that is pale in color and excitedly smooth. A base of German Pale and Vienna malts gives the beer notes of lightly toasted bread with a clean, crisp and refreshing mouth feel. The beer is then lightly dry-hopped with Crystal to lend just a hint of floral aromatics and a faint citrus flavor."

I was also getting contrasting info on the web and found these notes on their site:

04/17/12:
Coming next on the Greenhouse is our take on a pale lager affectionately known as The One They Call Zoe, beautifully malty but still crisp and hopped with American grown Mt. Hood hops.

08/12/12:
"The specs;
100% Weyermann malt consisting of pilsner, pale and caramunich. Mashed with complexity to create an enzymatic dance party and leave the imbiber with a wonderful malt voyage through a complex malt backbone, classic lager flavor, crisp and dry finish with a touch of citrus hop character in the nose and in the finish. 5.1% ABV and delicately dry-hopped with our special New Zealand hop."


Seems like they changed the recipe around quite a bit.

Found a bit more on the hops at least:
04/01/13
It’s brewed with high quality German pale and vienna malts, lightly hopped in the kettle for a theoretical 18 IBUs and then lagered post fermentation to round out the flavors and provide our lager yeast time to clean itself up before the big show. What make this lager unique is our complicated mashing schedule and the usage of Oregon Crystal hops for dry-hopping. We dry-hop at a rate of 0.2 pounds per barrel compared to the 0.5 pounds per barrel used for our Pale Dog.

0.2 lbs/barrel is only 1/2 oz per 5 gallons which seems very light for the dry hopping.

I can tell you from drinking it that it's hopped much more than with the amount provided. It was almost like sticking your face in a bag of hops, it's so good!

Also, I got sidetracked and haven't been able to look into this too much so thank you for doing some of the leg work for me!
I did e-mail them about yeast selection and they suggested just using a clean American lager strain like 001 or 1056.

I wonder if their NZ hop is Mouteka?

I may have to tweak my recipe some....
As it stands I have:

5.5gal batch

7.5# pale
4.0# Vienna
0.5# Biscuit

Tradion hops at 60, 30 and 20 for about 20 IBU's.

Dry Hop:
3.00oz Cascade
3.00oz Amarillo

001 & 1056 are both Ale strains. I'm thinking WLP840.

Sure, I see how it reads now and that's my mistake.
I was just stating that 001 and 1056 we're clean american strains and I didn't know what the lager numbers were right off the top of my head.
