Almost clear yellow - gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy with a fine minerally crispness. Very light malts, not that sweet. Hops are smooth hop skunk with a nice dose of pine. Finishes light and crisp. A bit thin but certainly hoppy.

June 25th, 2013 - Everyone knows the IPA, but the IPL is a rarer treat. What makes an IPL? An aggressively hopped lager? The label doesn’t say, but that’s my guess both before and after sampling this version of the beer from Ironfire. The scent is dominantly piney, and recalls images of walking around a copse of pine trees in the Rocky Mountains. There’s also the fibrous scent of twine and the bitterness of lemon pith. But there’s a heavy layer of hops too, which is dry and resinous, and a handful of spice. My mother was a fan of arts and crafts fairs, which were often packed into church gymnasiums, and that heady smell of freshly cut wood, twine and other art supplies shares some aromatic genetics with the Nühell. As textured as the aroma is, the palate is smoothly carbonated. The hops is predominant here, with a dry hop or compressed cop bitterness taking the lead, though it’s a reserved leadership - mild and subtle. The aftertaste is strangely hoppier than the flavor itself, leaving each sip at a high-note. I like it, and hope to see IPLs more widely.

This beer has a nice floral aroma. It has a lot of flavor for a lager but is more mild than your typical India pale. A great balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clownoisseur (389) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle thanks to Brokensail. Pours a light golden-yellow. Two finger fluffy head. Aromas a light lagered yeast sweetness and sharp grapefruit hop bitterness. Taste is a bit sharp upfront. Grapefruit galore. It settles into a lightly sweet malt backbone before some light floral hop bitterness to round it out. Solid.
