I followed the Coney island pilsner with this and was much more impressed. This had a lot more flavours (especially citrus notes) which made this a far more enjoyable beer. Great lager.

Yellow with a white head. Heavily carbonated, tons of citrus hops flavor with a bit of earthiness mixed in.

My Bottom Line :
Floral and crisp, this lagered IPA is surprisingly nudged by alcohol, ending in a delicate hop resin bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam laces around the pale amber glow.
-The lean body helps drinkability, as does the creamy carbonation.
-The flavor profile is balanced.
-This wasn’t bad at all, but I guess I was expecting more from a hoppy lager...

Nice golden pour. Wheat hoppiness. Fresh baked bread. Some fruit notes. Drinkable but ultimately forgettable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours an average cheddar orange with a nose of seltzerized grapefruit and weak pine. Flavor is mineral water and grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. Weak. Don’t swallow.

Somewhat hazy golden beer with à rich lasting offwhite head. Hoppy citrus aroma, malty, fruity, grapes, bread, pears, some grapefruit. Hoppy citrus flavor, grapes, floral notes, grapefruit, bready, some herbal notes. Hoppy floral finish, banana, grapes, hay and some pineapple. Really good to be a strong lager.

Bubbly carbonated hops on the aroma. Light/pale copper with some decent foam. Interesting, carbonated bitter hops with the similiar funky taste of of a pilsner. Bit of a grassy taste with possibly some coriander. Overall, it’s an interesting brew. Nice pilsner & IPA hybrid, more on the pilsner side. The quality is decent but the idea is unique. I’d give this a B rating.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of mixed grassy and piney hops, slight orange, booze, hints of toffee and caramel, slight earthy and vanilla tones. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, hop notes, slight boozy notes which is odd, slight orange, hints of lemon, grass, slight vanilla, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.
