COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bitter beer hits major-key notes of citrus and flowers, but finishes with a mellowing, hoppy flourish. Smooth and spirited at the same time?

Hopped with Centennial, Cascade and Falconer’s Fight

Draft pour pint at Medina. On vacation, so breakfast beers are the obvious choice. Enjoyed earlier today, and took notes. Pours a bright golden color with a ton of foam head and lace. Sweet mango and pine aroma. Flavor is heavy with tropical fruit, and very low bitter. Some orange late. Very nice IPA overall.

Bouteille 330ml, gracieuseté de Erik-P, Thanks Erik! Couleur orangée pâle voilée, mousse beige pâle onctueuse et persistante laissant une superbe dentelle. Arôme de houblon résineux, malt, agrumes, un peu poussiéreux. Goût d’agrumes, houblon résineux, malt, pelure d’orange, belle amertume toute en longueur. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen.

This is a good ipa. Pours a nice golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of piney forest. Taste of citrus/pine with a bitter finish (70 ibu). Very good. This is one of my favorites definetly in my top 5 for ipas. Pick up a four pack and enjoy.

Lagerboy (1738) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
330 ml bottle. Mostly clear orange yellow, fading white foam. Mouth watering tropical forest fruity aroma. Juicy tropical forest fruity hop taste, floral grapefruit, deliciously balanced with solid pale c-malts. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Bitter citric finish. Another winner from Four Winds. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Bought 4 for 10ish bucks at a BC liquor store for the--th time and figured I ought to rate it. The scoreboard is waaaayyyy out of whack. The pour is so pretty. Like honey with a squeeze of pamplemousse rouge. A couple of fat fingers of off white head and champagne bubbles. Nice and lazy. Tastes like tropical fruit up front but that peels off to the duel between bitter and bread. The hops are beautifully bitter but the grain is enough to keep this one from sitting on you like a gargoyle.
