4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The world needs more India Pale Lagers. Or maybe it just needs more beers like Dissenter. Maybe I just need more Dissenter. Enough of that. Dissenter pours golden orange. There’s not much head, but you don’t need a lot of foam to take in the resinous hop aromas and bread-like malt. The taste could keep me happy all day long. Hops are citrusy and piney. The bread flavors help to smooth things over, but this Lager is undeniably hop-forward. Despite the bitterness, this brew is crisp and refreshing. Plenty of attitude but it tips back easily.

A- Bready, doughy, caramel, citrus, hoppy, piney, resinous.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Bready, caramel. citrus, bitter, pine.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- Boy this was a bitter one. At least a lot more than I expected it to be. Lots of caramel, bread, citrus, and pine. Almost reminded me of their Devil Dancer with age. Not bad at all but not particularly my thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice aroma of citrus hops, with a hint of sweet breads in the background. Golden color with a lace white head. Sweet, bready malt up front. A little too sweet. Quickly followed by an alcohol burn, mixed with citrusy hops, and a strong bitterness. Blends together quite well on the finish. Slick mouthfeel but not off-putting. Somewhat peppery bitterness comes through as it warms up, but hard to find the "pilsner" flavor overall. Not bad though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy, deep yellow color with a very nice, 1/4 inch dense white foamy head. Aroma has a very strong citrus nose at first with a pronounced orange nose, light lemon zest hints with some light pine in the finish. The malt of this beer sits behind the scenes and adds a light grainy presence late in the nose. Flavor starts off with a strong cascade hops orange note which is quickly followed up by light lager and grainy flavor at the end. Body is modest with a low amount of carbonation and a good deal of residual sweetness to hold the hoppy flavor and strong alcohol presence. Overall a good brew but nothing outstanding. I feel the high alcohol presence and large hops presence watered down the beer a bit.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with thick white head and tons of lacing. Big time hop aroma with citrus notes of lemon peel and some floral notes. Taste is unlike any other lager I've had. Absolutely no alcohol taste so this will really creep up on ya. Easily could pass as an Imperial IPA. Moderate to heavy bitterness with a nice malt backbone. Lot of citrus flavors with some grass and grainy flavors. Just an incredible beer.

Bottle Poured a pale lager look with more gold colors and a nice bubbly white head. Completely unexpected aroma of fresh citrus hops. Sweet, hoppy flavor that almost reaches syrupy. Lingering bitter flavor with a hint of lager yeast. Really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle from New Beer Distributors in New York, served in a stem glass. Pours clear straw-amber with a medium off-white head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big noble hops, along with lager malts, apple, plum and soft herbs. The flavour is mildly malty sweet with pale malts, honey, slight fruit and a noble hop bitterness that increases over time. A touch of resin comes through as well. The finish is long and hoppy with a slight spice. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, a decent imperial pils. The hops could be a bit more prominent up front. 2014-12-06
