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.

deyholla (7713) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges slowly and laces. Aroma ha a decent amount of grain with a hint of nuttiness and a good amount of grassy hops. Flavor has more grass throughout with a light pine note and a bit of bread and grain underlying.

Roonai (305) - - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. Bright orange chestnut with a thick off white head. This beer could pass as a hoppy pale or an Ipa in a blind taste- but as it stands, it lacks some of the straw grass I tend to expect in a lager but it may be in there under the hops. Still- enjoyable and refreshing.

Obfuscate (243) - Minneapolis, - APR 17, 2015
Cool bottle. Much more amber in color than I expected, thick off white head that sticks around. Drinks like a hoppy APA. Some floral and caramel on the nose not too much fruity hops like some IPL. Clean up front with some grapefruit bitterness on the back end.

This IPL never disappoints. Nice aroma, amber color, piney yet very smooth. Only slight wood characteristic. A well rounded enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (3340) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 8, 2015
Alumium bottle. Amber, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some caramel and light fruitiness, piney - light citrus hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, piney - some citrus hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and dryish, lots of piney hoppyness, light alcohol. OK well hopped and dryish imperial pils - not overly too much alcohol in the finish. IP that is more enjoyable than some of beers sold as IPAs.

Benzai (9781) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2015
Bottle-like can (I think?) @ weekly tasting shared with Joes. Clear amber color, full sized white head that lasts for a decent while and leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is lightly malts, lightly hops, a hint of sweetness. Taste malts, lightly hops, again a little sweetish, there is a light touch of orangepeel-bitter, a hint of oak-wood-bitter towards the finish. Medium body and carbonation.
