Can @ Maple Leaf Motel. Yellow beer with a white head. This is some good stuff. Super fruity aroma of cantaloupe, honeydew, grapefruit, and lemon. A nice touch of sweet orange to go with it, too. The malt profile here is pretty nice, and a good mouthfeel, which is sometimes lacking in these hoppy, light, US lagers. Nice biscuity, chewy malt character. Slightly dry on the finish. Plenty of citrus, melon, and even slightly tropical hop flavor with just enough bitterness. This is a nice beer.

It’s very well done. Nothing off, a perfectly made lager. I have rated it out and don’t see how I can give it the equivalent of the ratings it is getting though.

Ron (3612) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Can. Pours yellow / gold with a decent white head. Aroma is heavy grapefruit / citrus, tropical fruits, and grass. Taste is very tropical, lots of citrus and grapefruit, mildly bitter on the finish. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel with a little residual sugar but overall a really nice beer.

12oz bottle. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is floral, light, and of grapefruit. Taste is primarily grapefruit with grain and a growing bitterness. Moderately bitter hop finish. Unpleasant lingering, hoppy yeasty aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. [This is for the year-round 4.9% ABV 45 IBU session IPL not the 5.5% Hopstitution series Calyptra]

Bottle. It pours a clear golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is strong with flowery hops and grapefruit. The flavor is light and flowery. Hop forward with very light pale malts. Low bitterness and a little citrusy in the finish. Very crushable.

mathieuc (3390) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2016
Nice looking purple can. Pours a pretty clear pale golden with a medium white head that leaves really nice lacing. Nose is of onion, diesel with some good tropical fruits and pine angles. Taste is lightly fruity and dry, moderately bitter. Some crisp cereals finish up the flavors. A little onion and garlic again. Piny and long bitter finish. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate and texture is slightly oily. A very good IPL for sure, I just wish it was fruitier and a little more expressive.

Huhzubendah (3543) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Can. Thanks Devin! Bright yellow body with a thin, white head. Huge mango and tropical melon aroma. Super fruity with some classic helles flavor sneaking in late. Definitely not a classic helles. More of a fruity, hop forward American / helles hybrid. Tasty.
