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.

Bottle. Nose is lightly lemony-citric but leans more toward the pale malt and herbal hop character. Pours clear deep golden with a soapy off-white head. Taste relatively dry with good, firm bitterness; lightly mineral, some fruit rind, herbal and earthy character, clean malt if simple. Has a nice lager character even if it doesn’t bring too much carbonation. Medium body, maybe a bit fuller, and I like the hops here as a change of pace, reminds me a lot of Germany

Pours amber into a shaker. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sour biscuit and butterscotch aromas. Thin and soft with butterscotch and caramel upfront turning to rancid sour butter in the lasting bitter finish.

puboflyons (2143) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 2, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium amber leading up to a lingering off-white head. Great clarity. The aroma has a pleasant citrus hop character mingling with the sweet caramel malts of an amber lager. The hops tend to take control but only in a subtle sort of way. The body is about medium. The taste begins with a mildly sweet caramel malt character but the citrus, grassy hops roll in quickly and smoothly. Not bad.

60minuteman (750) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Clear light amber and a little bit of white lace. Smell of corn, malt, molasses, cinnamon and other spices. Taste is a sweet and spicy pine like. Too much treacle for my taste. Alcohol and yeast lingers. Just ok.

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2014
bottle. golden with one finger head. lager with a solid hoppy bite. hard to get excited much about this, but it’s at least got a bit of flavor.

damzz (262) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours a clear burnt gold with an off white head with lots of lacing.Nose is hops. Palate is lager body and crispness with hops dominating. Indeed, it all about the hops.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAR 30, 2014
Quite bitter but well brewed. Too much hops for my standards and clear in most the features.

A nice floral hop aroma and taste with subtle hints of citrus and spice, it poured light gold.

BroSpud (1689) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with a white head. Not as much hops as I was hoping for but enough to qualify for the style I guess. Goes down easy and non-offensive though nothing spectacular.

TATE (297) - Lubec, Maine, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a thin off white head. Grapefruit aroma. Citrusy hop flavor throughout but lighter than a normal IPA. There was a bit of a metallic taste in the middle. Similar to Sams IPL and an alternative to sweet IPA as this one finishing a littler drier.
