COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pils Lager
Our spring seasonal offering brewed with 100 percent positive vibrations and single-hopped with Citra hops. The presence of the Citra hop is elevated by a clean fermenting lager yeast that allows the subtle Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malts to lay a crisp, bready foundation. The citrus and tropical fruit character of the Citra hop comes from kettle additions followed by a huge dose of ‘em again in the fermenter.

Darkmagus82 (1816) - - OCT 11, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 2-14-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazed light amber color with a one finger head of pure white. The fizzy head fades very fast leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a grainy smell mixed with some grapefruit citrus and some lemon aromas. Along with these aromas are some light caramel smells as well as a bit of a grassy and floral smell. Taste – The taste begins with a drier cracker taste with a good dose of a grassy taste. There are just some hints of sweet citrus upfront with them fading rapidly from the taste, leaving a quite dry taste overall. Along with the loss of the light sweetness, a grapefruit hop flavor mixed with some lemon grows stronger as the flavor moves on toward the end. A hay like taste comes to the tongue as well as some more grass, leaving a rather dry and somewhat green but pleasant flavor of grass, hay, and grain to linger on the tongue Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the averages side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are rather nice of the easy drinking and nicely hopped flavors of the brew, making for a crisp and refreshing drinker. Overall – A nicely hopped and rather tasty brew overall. At only 5.75 % abv it packs a good deal of hop flavor into its modest body. Quite tasty and crisp.

Marheb (2298) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Agrumes empêtrés dans un pain de levure, céréales craquants, blé et verdure chatouillant le palais. Le corps est entre croustillant et moelleux, fort agréable.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a frothy bright white head that faded slowly. The nose is big and citrusy with lots of catty citra notes. Some light pale bready maltiness. The flavor is light on the malt, letting the hops do all the talking. Bright and delicate with lots of citra that lingers nicely. Light bodied and easy drinking with fizzy carbonation. Decent beer.
