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.

Itís made out of a light but strong metal (not sure what it is). Makes for safe and easy camping, hiking, biking, or backpacking. Save the cap, and use the bottle as an emergency water bottle. When you get lost in the wilderness, you can use the bottle to store your own urine for a last resort.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Pours dark amber with lasting white head. Hoppy aroma, smells like an IPA. Full bodied flavour, like a cross between an IPA and a strong pils. Seems long stored

On tap at Base Camp. Colour...slightly hazy apricot-amber. Nose...slightly piney hops, but not resinous with some honey infused grain. Palate... Some dry, earthy hops with pine pitch and needles (yes, Iíve tasted both!) and some grain, all of which works its way towards a well blended taste and feel across the palate.

JMerritt (1842) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2013
22 oz. aluminum bottle. Beautiful looking beer - pours a deep orange-red with a nice, fully lasting and firm head. Moderately strong pine resin aroma with some black pepper and mild dried straw underneath. Heavily bitter with flavors of leather and grapefruit rind. There is a bit of grassy hay and a spark of musty yeast at the tail end of the flavor profile. Very dry, mildly alcoholic finish. A lager? You could have fooled me. Really, really tasty. Huge thanks to my sister- and mother-in-law for bringing this back for me from Oregon.

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

On draught at Base Camp. Such a smooth and hoppy (in a floral citrusy way). Flavor of apricot shines through. Did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Firkin at green dragon firkin fest - pours cloudy amber, off white medium head. Nose of sweet nectar and malt. Nice balance of hop and malt. Has a moderate hop bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4851) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Crisp copper and amber coloured body with a nice orange and bronze glow and a rich four centimetre tall tan head - very nice looking. Aroma of light grassy and herbal hops with a nice caramel and malt note and some lighter fruit smells. Medium-bodied; Nice grassy, floral, dry and rather perfumey hop notes up front with a solid malt backbone, some nice caramel sweetness and a touch of apples and pears at the end. Aftertaste shows mostly grassy and herbal hop notes with a solid malt backbone and enough sweet and fruity complexity to do well - especially for a lager. Overall, a very nice beer with a lot of good complexity and a solid hoppiness, especially for a lager. Great to try and even better with this awesome bottle. I sampled this 65 cL METAL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland, Oregon (Pioneer Place) on 13-April-2013 for US$5.50 sampled at home in Washington on 29-June-2013.

Can 650 ml ? (shaped as bottle)
Aroma: first impressions, darn this is good Shit. mango , citrus feel with slight creamy follow up. Berry creamy end not as nice.
Look: poured as clear deep amber with large creamy white top. Nice lace on glass walls. Handsome.
Taste etc.: bitter front , fruity, tart fruity feel. Not sure if this could be cantaloupe, watermelon with malty alcoholic warmth at end. Very unusual approach....read label...Oak aged , duh Radek. Very unlike Mocne beers of Poland still cool stuff! This shit grows on me, yeah great choice for late night camp event!

Fatehunter (1399) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
From a 22oz metal bottle, one and half fingers of cork colored head. A hazy, copper colored body. The smell of lemon and grapefruit. The taste is interesting in a good way. Medium bitterness throughout with a short finish. Pretty mellow overall. A little fizz in the texture. Moderate carbonation and medium body. Great drinkability and from a metal bottle. Perfect for a camping trip.
