On tap at the brewery for their pilot takeover. This was golden-yellow and next to the ShIre PA i could not tell it apart. In fact this was so hoppy that I wonder if I did not confuse the two but then I realized it was called India Pale Lager so maybe overwhelming hops was not a mistake. The aroma was what I believe to be Summit hops in abundance, garlic, onion, pepper. God do I hate Summit hops. The flavor was more of the same and just eww.

On tap at Great Divide. Fairly malty and not that crisp. Hop presence is minimal. Medium body.

Hop aroma and a hop taste dominate this beer. Very frothy, not sweet. Aftertaste was quite bitter.

Pour on tap at the 15th anniversary party, hazy yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grapefruit, pine, biscuit, some grass and floral notes, some crackery malts with hints of clean earth. Taste is a mix of grass and pine, some nice floral notes with orange, grapefruit going into biscuit and bready notes, hints of east, touch of earth, finishing fairly bitter.

Tap @ Great Divides 18th Anniversary Party. Fairly orangish amber appearance with an off white head. Somewhat earthy, a bit toasty, light caramel, straw aroma. Fairly mineralic, earthy, toasty caramel, light straw flavor. Not horrible but not very good either.

On tap at the brewery in Denver, CO. Pours a crystal clear, golden amber colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty cool. It has a distinct lager smell to it with the clean lager yeast and simple pale malts, but a really nice, balanced, moderate grapefruit pine and grassy hop backing. Flavor has a bit more of a distinct grapefruit citrus up front with a light pine and grass, but it remains balanced with the pale malts that offer a light sweetness and stay clean throughout. Finishes dry, fairly crisp, and clean with a medium bitterness from the hops. Lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium, pretty crisp and clean body with a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty cool beer. Ive had some hopped up lagers before and they were usually somewhat off balanced. This one is well hopped, but not so much as to take away from the clean pale malts and crisp lager yeast. I was a fan of this one.
