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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Where and how: PG / b. 355 ml
Aroma lager? citrusy fruit sided with sweet ripe mango. Quiet sweet.
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Aromat citry i delikatny diacetyl. Złote, opalizujące, piana trwała. W smaku czysty lagerowy charakter. Super chmielowy lager. Pijalny orzeźwiajacy. Świetny.
