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.

Stampion (154) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Decent. Citrusy, hoppy, and does finish crisp like a lager. It's fine, but nothing special, and more confusing than it needs to be. There's a reason IPL isn't really a beer term you hear. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiercepanda (550) - Missouri, USA - JUL 9, 2014
A clear dark golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet grain and a hint of fruity hops. The flavor combines light crisp grain and mild hop pine and bitterness.

Had this in variety pack from four lion on fourth of July 2014. Odd beer. Rated like a lager but slightly bitter with hint of hop flavor. Not bad for a hot day.

ADesenberg (597) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle: Pours a nice golden color with a white head. Aromas are full of grassiness and some tropical fruit. The taste is nice and smooth with citrus and tropical fruits. Nice... not spectacular, but solid beer.

N3lson1 (187) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Nice citrusy and grass aromas in this beer. A good variation of a IPA and a lager! But overall I feel it is a mediocre beer by Magic Hat.

bhensonb (11095) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Aroma of citrus and fruit. Very light aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is citrus and light stone fruit, and a touch of light treacle. Finishes lightly fruity, lightly bitter and lightly exciting. Or not exciting at all. How this is under Imperial Pils blows me away.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Clear amber with lasting white head. Smells of grain with a light hop. Smooth and balanced malt base that the hops creep through to round it out. The flavor lasts way beyond the sip.

kramer (4994) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold gold body under a one finger frothy white head that left some sticky lacing. The nose is decently hoppy with a citrusy kick over a bready malt base. The flavor is fairly hoppy, but fairly restrained in the bitterness. Not the cleanest or especially crisp on the finish, but it’s drinkable. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the best among the style, but about on par with most Magic Hat offerings.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet butterscotch malt with light herbal hops. In mouth, a sweet cloying malt with light grassy hops, mineral notes, boring.

chinchill (1888) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2014
12 oz bottle served ina pint glass. Look great in the glass with excellent clarity, plenty of visible carbonation and a large, creamy bone-colored head. The head is exceptionally durable. Aroma: fruity (citrus) APA with a solid malt base. Flavor: followas aroma. Great balance. Mildly bitter. Feel: excellent - lively but soft. Medium body. Smooth. O: an exceptional version of this style.
