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.

Pours dark amber (DIPA style) with a ligt amber--ish head. Piny in the aroma; exotic fruits on the palate; rasins, abricots, bit of pine apple; finishing in a strong bitter. Medium to full bodied taste. Very nice!

harrymel (1536) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Canned: unk Pours amber, with quilt of yellows with murky clarity. Waaay darker than I would expect. Smells of resin, grass, tea. Flavor is bitter, more tea, amber malt character, resin, tannin, meh. Medium on full bodied for the style with moderate carb (probably feels rather low due to the body), semi dry finish. Maybe this is old, but my suspicion is that this just isn’t that great of a beer. Maybe the oak kills it for me - I don’t dig it.

Salmoniform (1182) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head that settled. Aroma is pine, citrus, melon, straw, slight sulphur. Mouthfeel is great faith a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry with a hop bitterness dominating through the finish. Overall this is an interesting play on the ipa style.

slowrunner77 (6403) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"The unique and complex toasted oak SARS what would otherwise be a fairly boring attempt at a lager version of an IPA. A little on the malty side, spicy hops, pine, dug the finish, though :)"
