It poured a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of sweet honey and some vanilla. The taste was sweet with a kick of bitterness. A decent Hop Lager.

golden color, straight forward hoppy strong pale ale. Decent body and decent bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark golden/orange with a really decent rocky antique lace head. Aroma is toasted malt and a sour grassiness from the hops. Taste is a buttery sweet maltiness with a fairly substantial bitterness, once again brought on by the several hops used. Not getting any citrusiness like you’d expect from a load of hops like this, but it doesn’t really need it as it’s supposed to be an impy lager, not an IPA. Perhaps not my style, but pretty good nonetheless.

Bomber. Citrus and mild bitterness throughout. Malty fruit flavors in the background. Crisp finish.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.
