2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at prohibition pig; this keg is almost certainly past its prime, but there is no way to know. The appearance is tepid gold; the aroma is an amalgamation of tired, perfumed hop and alcohol with gritty, dog biscuit husk malt. The faded spruce and fresh tropical fruit notes are whimperingly present along with a sterilizing acetone flavor. Texturally slick with lots of trashy fruit peel notes mucking up the finish. There is no freshness or aliveness left here; this example surely has an extremely short shelf life.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Clear deep bright golden with a small white head. Grassy grainy aroma with some citrus notes. Hoppy flavor, like an IPA (does it matter that it’s a lager really?). Pale malt and hop bitterness, grass and citrus. Clean and crisp, very drinkable. Good beer.

Clear orange colour with a white head. Really nice fresh herbal hoppy aroma with orange, apricot, mango. Very nice balanced flavour with grapefruit, pine, toast and caramel, with a dry bitter finish.

So hoppy, so tasty, bit spicy, great body... And very refreshing! Best Lager I ever drunk, and excellent even if you think of it as and IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at birch hill tavern.. or the other 85 times I’ve had this: Pours clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, slight flowers. Taste is super clean citrus, resin, a little floral, not at all sweet and not overly bitter. This beer is insanely good and is much better on tap than in a bottle. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry finish. Outstanding... one of my favorites.

Stunned, amazing! Dark golden pour with white head. Tropical fruit and citrus aroma. Crisp, lemon zesty citrusy. Hint if pine, a little bit citrus tartness. Plenty hoppy too. Absolutely delicious.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Cask Republic, New Haven. Definitely seeing a craze for this style lately, which makes sense. Combines the aromatics of a good IPA with the body of a lager. Pours a medium orange-amber, nose crisp and resinous, no heavy stickiness here. Body is smooth and maybe even a bit creamy, some graham cracker notes and lingering resinous bittering as well, glad to have given this a whirl, hopefully a Shelton Bros or some similar can get this going nationwide.

Bottle at Café Viking. Medium high white fluffy lasting head. Cloudy orange body. Sweet mango peach aroma. Dry fruity nutty flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long dry and bitter finish.
