3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a fairly clear gold with medium - large bright white head which slowly settles and leaves good lace up the glass. Aroma is pale malts, dough, and floral. Taste is a bit of a harsh(though far from un-drinkable) hop bitterness; a mix between citrus(grapefruit) and metallic, sweet caramel and faint alcohol(until a minute ago I didn’t realize this is a 7.2 abv beer). I don’t mind this beer it’s crisp and bitter, though I think with a lager yeast it brings out some of the harshness of the hops though that could just be that there are 8 different hops which likely also contributes to the hard to distinguish hop characteristics/harshness. Interesting style though I think less hop varieties might work out better.

651mL thanks to DedicatedToFun. Pours a clear, deep gold. Low carbonation, spotty lacing. Nose is sticky, boozy. Taste is sticky, sugary, bitter orange, sharper dark chocolate bitterness, flashes of cabbage. Sharply, near abrasive bitterness. IPA with lager yeast. Interesting.

I thot fer sure I had this before, been passing up on the shelves. Big alabaster head. Clear yellow pour from the atp at the bocktown. Smell is simply beer. IPA taste impact. HAH, thinks its a lager but its reall an ipa in disquise. Finish, eh, must be ipa. Finish, yes, typical ipa. Very funny, a lager that wants to be an ipa.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, dark golden color with a big, foamy, white head that quickly dissipates into a cap. Floral hop aroma, as well as a bit of butterscotch and graininess. Slightly sweet, and a decent hop bite going down. Typical lager aftertaste, and went down smooth like a typical lager. I thought it was fine for what it was, but I don’t like these IPLs.
