COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship India Pale Lager showcases a copper color that gives way to a crisp, clean lager beer perfectly balanced in its massive complexity. Dry-hopped and aged on an in-house toasted blend of white and red oaks. The IPL finishes clean and smooth, with hop aromas of wild flowers and pine, and a unique maltiness highlighted by the subtle oak character.

brokensail (13234) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
On tap @ Base Camp. Much darker than expected. Sort of an amber color. Khaki foam. Good enough pineapple hop notes and a little peach. Somewhat citrusy, which is nice. Hints of watermelon gummy candy. The flavor is pretty heavy on grapefruit and watermelon gummies. A nice citric note to it. Some caramel malt, peach, and maybe pine to add just a faint bitterness. Good but sweet.

JorisPPattyn (8432) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2015
Medium, dense cream head, slightly irregular, fed by finely carbonated foxy amber beer. Sweetish cakebottom with C-hops, but also rainwater, sweet dessertbread , mastellen. Bitter and bready tastewise. Some resin, obviously, hopoils, walnutpeel, but also a bit of hazelnut(flour) at every new sip. Long bitterish, bit metallic aftertaste, dry. Good carbonation, slick, seems better bodied than 7%ABV would warrant. Doesnít have a lager character - not that I care. But it is rather severe-dry-bitter.

65 cl aluminum bottle.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a large head. Resinous hops and caramel on the nose, sweet orange and malts. Flavor is also sweet with caramel malts and resin, mild hops, some fruity notes as well as some alcohol at the end. Probably not at itís freshest but decent.

I love the fact that this beer actually has it all to be an IPA when it comes to hop profile. Itís has also a deep malt notes with emphases on melanoidinal notes. Good balance overall. That is surely one of the best hoppy lagers I tried till now and since Iím that pleased Iíll throw extra points for that.
