COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dream Machine, an India Pale Lager or IPL, is a melding of varied visions of an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager. Once poured, its light copper color delights the eyes and a citrusy hop aroma flows through the nose. Upon first sip, a smooth hop bitterness reveals itself - fresh, bold and slightly spicy - before subtle hints of mild maltiness appear. A big hop bite and a crisp, clean lager finish combine for a beautifully balanced beer. Take Dream Machine for a spin and let your reverie begin.

Draught @ Albion. Clear amber color with small beige foamy head, malt aroma, medium carbonation, crisp malt taste with slight bitterness at the end, abrupt finish. Not a very inspiring example.

Draft. Not bad, one of the better beers I’ve had from MH. Floral and peppery hop nose and flavors, clean malts, semi-dry finish.

Average smell, can’t see in bottle, very average taste, balanced, not too hoppy..less than I thought, smooth but uneventful

Ok IPL - not very hoppy or aromatic. I expected more. Spices barely noticable. Same goes for hops. Crisp taste but not to my liking.

Its time to rally at the bottom of the 9th. This beer can bring you home with that aroma and palate.

Bottle from SJ trade. This wasn’t too bad. Body was a tad thin for my tastes, but nice notes of grass, hop, and caramel malt.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bomber into Boulevard stemmed tulip glass. Nice white head that lasted fairly long and left lots of lacing. Between clear and opaque light brown/amber. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Earthy nose. Great bitterness. Floral and earthy with a little orange candy. Good aftertaste.

adasko (892) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Wygląd czysty lagerowy, ze świetną pianą. W aromacie słodowy i lekko cytrusowy. Mocno wysycony. Pilsnerowa goryczka na amerykańskich chmielach. Super. Świetne piwo.

12 oz bottle, gift from my sister. This is a nice and clear amber color with a small ring of a white head. Aroma is underwhelming. Yeah, it’s fairly hoppy but in a metallic and grassy way. Sweet malts give balance and lager yeast adds some vegetal notes. This tastes like a poorly overhopped bock to me. It’s sweet, bready and malty with metallic hints and a weird, faint Bud-Light type sourness to it. Could be acetaldehyde, could be something else. Talk about a clunky and unenjoyable lager. The finish is sweet, vegetal, grassy, sweaty, chalky and metallic. I’m trying to ignore the misnomer IPL on the label, and I still don’t care for this one. See Ballast Point/Sierra Nevada for how to correctly do a hopped up lager.

Solid, and smooth as befits this style. That said, this is more of an "APL" -- not as hoppy as it should be.
