Pours a nice golden amber, but the head was far thicker than I expected.
Pleasant aroma of grapefruit and pine with some spice and caramel. Not as much bitter as the aroma suggested. A little sweetness. Hops and caramel.

Poured large bottle into a imperial pint glass. The bottle says itís a "IPA style brewed withe Lager Yeast. I think this a phenomenal IPA. Great color, frothy head all the way to bottom of the glass. Forget silly stuff like hints of pine and grass, this brew has a solid hops flavor though and though. Sturdy is the word. BRAVO!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big bottle from Fairway Market. Diaphanous blonde with a loose-heaped foam lacing ornately. Orange rind, honey, shrub, Lipsyl, bath foam, dried apricot and pine in a distinctly European- accented nose. Soft marmalade and pine hop notes; honey on white toast and crackers; apricot flavours. Hints of dried herbs and peach. Reminds me of very nice beer of Rodos, aromatised with rosemary. Rounded and mellow with generous bitterness in the finish.

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 didnít realize this is a 7.2 abv beer). I donít mind this beer itís 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.

Dark straw with low head. Aroma of herbal hop, lots of rich pale malts (biscuit) and a little bit of peppery alcohol.
