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.

Tasty beer. The IPL is now on ky radar, between this and the Sam Adams version. Clean finish, soft mouthfeel. Fairly light and easy to drink.

This was not good. The color was totally off, smell was yeasty. The hops were overwhelmed by the doughy yeast stale grain flavor of the beer. It was free. I only took a few sips.

pours hazy golden orange with a nice small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. lightly toasted malted base - some sweetish caramel, lagering fruity notes - oranges and apricots, few pine, coffee grinds and citrus. light carbonation, light body - oily, balanced and almost crisp grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. more than decent ipl.

BeerInHeaven (181) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2015
pours a slightly murky gold with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma is light malt, hay, and slight floral. Tastes crisp at first, then the nice hop bitterness kicks in. Pleasant hoppy linger. Good beer.

EtTuCthulhu (1178) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2014
This beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a large white head. The subtle aroma blends breast malts and some citrus and earthy hops. The taste is slightly bitter and slightly sour with an aftertaste that has a very light hop flavor. The palate fuses a thick texture, medium body, and an average carbonation.

dresden (999) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Hazy golden orange with a nice foamy sticky head. Light citrus aroma, some kind of weird cardboardy thing. Flavour is more cardboard, wet paper, fruity hops there but it’s not ideal
