3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Lefthand. Orange-brown, filtered. Soapy off-white head. Herbal aroma. Very interesting beer. Pretty hop forward, but ends with some nice lager yeast notes. Sprucy, sage flavors, but they balance out quite well. Broad range of herbal hop nuances. Well done.

Bottle from Dorothy Lane. I liked this type and beer. Very nice example with copper color, nice head and lacing, with a unique must taste up front, very subtle so it adds to flavor, citrus notes as well.

Hoppy aroma. Golden coloured floral hoppy and smooth on the palate with a hint of dryness in a bitter and creamy malt finish.

Pors deep golden with a bit of a haze. It has muted notes of spicy hops which truly show up nicely on the mid palate and then blends out to a nice herbal finish. Doesn’t show the ABV that badly.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head with medium retention recedes leaving spotted sheets. Resin and vanilla aromas. Sweet caramel and vanilla upfront with a lasting woody resin finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked this up at Rick’s in Alexandria.
Poured a light orange copper with a white head. Nose brings a bit of citrus zest along with some mild grainy notes. Taste offers some hops, but.not what I would expect from the IPL "style." Some citrus and a bit of an herbal taste. Mouhfeel is light and slightly bitter. Drinks fairly well but is not what it could be given the hoppy portfolios of the breweries individually.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber via Lubiere, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear orange-amber with a small, thin white head.
Aroma: Quite fruity with peaches and berries, behind that, a good dose of pine, grapefruit and resinous hops, dusty, some decent caramel, a little peppery, more fruits, citrus, light esters?, nice.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Biscuit, caramel, the malts are a bit...dirty, fairly strong pine and resin hops, still a bit dusty, a touch brothy, there is a bit of vague fruitiness, but much less than the nose, a bit of eucalyptus, kinda strange; lightly sweet with formidable bitterness and a mineral, dusty, peppery/pine finish.
A different brew indeed. Clearly brewed with care. Not entirely my cup of tea. Or beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old note, @ Tylers Apex. Good aroma, yeasty, malty. Sourdough, vanilla, wheat bread. Brownish orange color, small head minor lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Interesting. Big lager beer always get my attention as I don’t always think of them. Aroma favorite part. Flavor was a tad dull.
