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.

12oz into a glass. Pours a honey lemonade gold. Super huge and thick white head, imminent domain. A few inches of goodness. Hangs out awhile too. Aroma of orange, grain, crystal malt, citra hop essence. Taste of hoppy orange, grassy Meadows of herbage, fresh pine, malty finish. The interchange between the styles is interesting, as it hovers over an Ipa base but throws in pilsner and lager quantifications as well. Groovy and relaxing.

Chalumeaux (326) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Poured from tap light golden color with a thin white head. Aromas of juicy citrus and hop. Taste is ok but left something to be desired.

High grapefruit even the rinds finish it. Hops are heavy but not insane. Deep yellow and hazy. Light aroma makes me think sunshine. Tap

12 oz bottle. Nice clean citrus taste that does not overwhelm anything else. For a fruit beer this was quite enjoyable.

Nice citrus fruit with a pleasant bitterness. Nothing is over done but both are prominent and balanced enough to keep it enjoyable. Overall very refreshing.

Where and how: PG / b. 355 ml
Aroma lager? citrusy fruit sided with sweet ripe mango. Quiet sweet.
Appearance :
Top: large creamy, foamy white top, lace on glass.
Base: fine haze, pale golden.
Palate : medium bodied, soft, mild carbonation.
Taste: very hop forward, everything else is secondary. Mellow base,
Other notes not very lager like. Hops cover benefits of lagering. Tasty? Yes, but considering lager is more expensive to brew , one might wonder why.

blankboy (6520) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
[Draught at Coles, Buffalo] Pours a slightly hazy deep gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head and some lacing. Nice citra aroma, lots of fruity hops, just lovely really. Flavour’s not quite as good but still good, it follows the aroma along with a light odd touch I can’t place. Big dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good.

Bottle at home. Pours hazy dirty gold with sudsy white head. Nose is lovely burst of juicy citrus. Tastes of mangos, guava, dank weed, honey, peppercorns, touch aerosol. Nice sticky yet lively palate. Drying finish. Probably best otter creek beer I’ve had.

superspak (3327) - Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2015
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 11/10/2014. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a dense cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, cracker, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity of citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, apricot, lemon/orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a awesome IPL style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
