3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hoppy, grassy smell. Pours burnt orange and very clear. White head that disappeared. Low-medium carbonation which I really enjoy. Easy drinker. Clean hoppy taste that doesn’t over power and has just enough body to let the hops stand out cleanly. Nice IPL.

Bottle. Nice flavor, definite hop presence crisp, citrus notes. I like the IPL twist. I think the lager let’s the hops play a bit. Enjoyable

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear copper color with a nice white head. A slight presence of carbonation. Aroma was of mild toasted malts and a light sense of sweetness. Hops were a mix of floral and citrus. Flavor was
Mildly sweet initially. Floral hops came through and the citrus hops were mostly in the finish. Easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled from Coppers Newcastle. Hazy orange pour, with a chalky and caramel aroma. The caramel dominates the tongue, making it cloying. It tastes unbalanced and a little rough. Sweet alcoholic finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From Bottle Shop. Pours an almost-clear bright light orange with watery white head. Smells of dry bitter piney hop, wet crisp malt, bit of cinnamon pepper spice. Tastes (as advertised) like a hoppy lager - quite bitter but crisp. Taste doesn’t last long. Body is thin in a way that complements a lager - the spiciness also prevents it from feeling thin. Good and is nicely very bitter though the taste is a little boring (almost seems a waste of hop). Solid beer though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Translucent light amber. Minimal head. Aroma is very yeasty with strong grassy hops. Taste is bready like a sourdough with very strong hops for a lighter lager - bitter and grassy with pine. Crisp finish which is really nice. Very balanced. Only flaw would be the slightly one note hops flavor. Much better than the Sam Adams Double Agent IPL which is also good but not as hoppy. Would definitely get again.
