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.

jkwood04 (4445) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 24, 2014
12oz bottle. Looks lighter/amber color. Aroma of floral and lightly piney hops, pale and caramel malts, and some bread and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer but could be hoppier.

Stampion (173) - 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

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.

GnarlyGnome (721) - Fairfield, 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.

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 (12023) - 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.
