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.

Really nice fresh roasted malt aroma. Crystal clear orange/amber colir with a thin white head. The malt aroma goes right into the flavor and it’s delicious. Hops are light but them come out under the malt nicely. Finishes light with a nice bitter, roastiness. Nice, easy drinking. ***NOTE*** This was my 666th rating and I didn’t know it! This didn’t seem to be a particularly evil beer....

Darwenus (557) - Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a clear, bright amber color with not much foam. The aroma is floral hops. There is a decent malt quality up front in the flavor, and then a dry finish. I liked it more than I thought I would.

Cybercat (3376) - Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a clear, dark, bubbly amber with a thick, fluffy eggshell head. Hoppy aroma is mainly woody and has a dusty hay overtone plus just a hint of citrus. Hops dominate the pleasing flavor, supporting woody and crisp malty notes plus a snip of orange. Texture is not too firm, but has decent fizz. Maybe not the beer of my dreams, but definitely fantastic.

Berard (309) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with thin white head that dissipates. Pepper hop aroma with mild carbonation. Tastes like hoppy perfume. Do they put apricots in everything? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (3807) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle: Deep, clear, bubbly gold with a tight, off-white head. Scent is like old iron....peppery and herbal.... Taste is herbal...spice/pepper bitter...malty... Citrus and toffee...Brine? maybe... Very strange.....can’t quite pinpoint it all..but I rather enjoyed it!

GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2014
Sample in a flight at the Beer Growler in Alpharetta. Pours orangish-yellow, with a small, cream colored head. The aroma is straw, bitter orange peel, cloves, and lavender. Sweet and malty up front, with an aggressive bitterness coming forward quickly. Medium body, smooth, and lightly spicy. Pretty good carbonation, and a nice velvety mouthfeel. Overall, this is a creative, spicy, hoppy creation. Enjoyable, drinkable, and unusual.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2014
Not sure exactly what this supposed to be. Pours clear golden with ok head and lacing. Some alcohol and caramel. On tap at DC Beer Festival.

aracauna (3094) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2014
This is a like an IPA with training wheels. Candy caramel malt is bigger than hops, but the hops are fresh and interesting.

SudsMcDuff (5864) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 11, 2014
Pulls a deep golden copper. It is a very light broom. It has a good white foamy head but the lacing could be better. Is quite bitter for a pale lager but also very one dimensional and fades quickly. Overall one of the better magic hats but there are better IPL’s out there .. . . I wonder what is what like in 1776?

Blairgus (2640) - California, USA - APR 9, 2014
9 apr 2014, bottle. Yellow, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is very cereal malt and toasty. Smells like boiling wort. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Slightly toasty, some grassy hops. Decent. Slight crisp bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
