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.

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.

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.

This IPL never disappoints. Nice aroma, amber color, piney yet very smooth. Only slight wood characteristic. A well rounded enjoyable beer.

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.

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.

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.
