3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lager malts, IPA hoppning. Good bite, aromatic hops, body and malt backing that is fullbodied lager. Creates a body that is a bit thin. But all in all an interesting beer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, we’ll retained ivory head, with some lacing, over a clear medium amber (SRM 12) body......nose is light pine, slight citrus from the hops, cereal, light toffee/caramel from the malts.......taste is light toasted malts, with cereal, biscuit tones, honey tones, along with pine, light citrus from the hops leading to a moderately bitter but lingering, clean finish.....mouth feel, body light medium, slightly sticky, alcohol hidden, light clean acid on the finish. This is a slightly light take on an IPA. It is nicely balanced, is very clean, but lacks a bit of the malt depth found in the best of this very broad style. I would suggest a slight increase in the number of malts used. What would this be like with a bit of rye? BJC P 8/3/15/5/7

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taste is predominantly citrusy hops and caramel malts; which concludes in a clean, cold lager-like finish. Very drinkable, but towards the end of the session it just reminded me of any other American IPA, and I kind of had forgotten that I was actually drinking a lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear gold on tap with bubbly white cap of head. Aroma is clean and fruity, sweet citrus. Taste follows with a hint of biscuit on the back end. Easy to drink with the crisp lager finish. Impressive for the style, but not sure I can hop on this train yet.

Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head htat dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a really nice citrus pine combination with resin underlying and a touch of earthy grain. Flavor has a really nice pine and citrus combination as well as grapefruit coming through.

This is a great twist! Pours from the tapas nice golden amber with a lacy head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Smells floral and citrusy with pine notes. Tastes of grapefruit, pith, a bit of salt, and some bell pepper. Finishes cleaner than most IPAs, with only a little stickiness and a creamy citrus aftertaste.
