The Dissenter pours a a slightly orange yellow with thick ivory head that lasts a decent while. The aroma is citrus, biscuit, orange and mango. The flavor is orange, mango and biscuit. Overall this is a very nice beer. It drinks smoothly hiding the high ABV and is packed with flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a clear golden colour with creamy white head that sticks around. Aroma is pine resin, tropical fruit, grass, as well as a little bready, caramelly malt. Flavour is big on resiny and citrusy hops, some grassy notes, sweetish caramel and some breadiness. Carbonation on the livelier side. Nice bitterness in finish. Impressive.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refreshing aromas of tropical fruit leap to the forefront companied by subtle notes of citrus. A quickly disapearing white head sits atop a clear amber pour which produces little lacing. Malts are present but they take a distinct backseat to the assertively hoppy palate. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, while refreshing and the hint of tropical fruit was present in the taste, this beer could have used more malt flavors to balance the bitterness of the hops.

Pours gold and clear. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor is resiny pine, with pretty strong bitterness for a lager. Crisp and light-bodied. A little alcohol burn in there. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy golden amber pour with a thick white head. Bready and hoppy nose. Really nice taste - surprisingly easy to drink for nearly 9%. Nice apricot hop flavor and a tropical bitterness in the finish. Might be the nicest of the series in a while, yet sitting on shelves around here because its not barrel aged? Double You Tee Eff?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Interesting beer. The bitter, pine flavor of the hops is really emphasized in this one. Little of the fruity, citrus, tropical fruit flavors that one associates with IPAs. Pours a copper gold with small head. Not sure I liked it as much as a good IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very intense resinous and grassy hops with little of the citrus character I’d like in a beer of this style. High bitterness. Malt confers almost zero flavor, which is not really my thing for lager styles. Tricky beer to rate, well made but not in my wheelhouse.

Bottle. Pours crystal clear golden with nice white head and some lacing. Nose is all tropical fruits and pineapple. Taste adds some mango with some nice clean bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel. Great IPL.
