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.

From a small sample at a tasting. Deep red amber colour, nice lacing. Loads of hops in aroma. Balanced by sweetness and fruit in taste. Full but clean beer. Nice and drinkable.

Visual: My 2nd Base camp brew that I’m trying. Pours rich copper brown with a smallish head, lots of lacing, ringed retention, lots of fast and steady streams. Nose: faint wildflower nose, almost nothing (lvl-1)-pungency Attack: incoming biting hops Mid-palate: crisp-creamy smooth mouthfeel, (lvl-3)-sweetness, (MAIN) caramel malt, piney hops, orange citrus Finish: medium-sharp bitter hops, mild oaky hopped malt finish. Summary: Quite drinkable with good complexity and balance. Admittedly I haven’t tried many IPLs but this one makes me approve of the style.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a fairly thick light tan head on there. Nose is fresh and very hoppy, with some great citrus elements to it, almost like a lemongrass. Taste is light and fresh, and not as bitter as I would have expected; only a slight bitterness with a residual hint of sweetness to it. Not a bad drink.

22 oz aluminum bottle- Pours hazy dark golden with a huge white head, be careful with pouring this one, the head got away from me. Lace is decorative, cobwebby. The aroma is balanced, sweet malt, not a lot of hops. The taste is caramel malt, spicy bitter hops. I was very close to saying I like these types of beers with less malt and more of a citrus hop character and all that stuff, but this actually works. Still will probably never purchase again.

Big sticky hop aroma. Glowing orange brown amber color. Big sticky hop front that backs off and leaves a light stick behind.

maekchu (2528) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 16, 2014
Draught at the brewery during Zwickelmania 2014. This version listed at 62 IBU. Very light nose of peaches and other mild fruit. Hazy copper color. Initial flavors or apples and a whole lotta pears (fruit punchy stuff) / mid doesn’t move much / a metallic tingle and light hop tracks in finish. An IPA base done with lager yeast, which tones down the flavor profiles. Lagered on oak chips. Four hop varieties for dry hopping, but that doesn’t really come out much in the nose. Nice enough, though.

Poured from 1 pint (6 fl oz) bottle. Clear copper with full beige head. Piney hop aroma and taste. Light body. Pretty good for a lager.
