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.

Light haze on a corn yellow body. Head is frothy white. Great hop up front nicely balanced with a little wheat, some cracker, and a touch of sweetness. Dry but not overly. Yum.

Draught @ Madison Grill - Hoboken. Hazy bright orange with very small frothy white head, citrus peel aroma, low carbonation, crisp hoppy taste, long bitter finish. Very nice, IPA like brew.

Bottle to glass. Holy dankiness upon smelling. Light citrus. Catty. Great aroma. Pour is clear, pale yellow in color, medium to large white head, Rocky. Taste is like a German pils with cattiness and a touch astringent. This dang things drinks pretty grate. Reminds me a lot of victory prima pils but just a great citra hop presence. The hop bitterness gets to be wearing by the end though. Just a touch too much hop bitterness makes it on the verge of astringent. Otherwise it’s a great beer

Poured a bright gold with lots of carbonation. Aroma was mostly floral, piny hops and some citrus. Taste is mostly bitter hoppiness that lingers on the tongue balanced by some subtle fruity sweetness.

Bouteille. Une robe dorée avec une mousse compacte blanche. Un premier nez d’agrumes, ensuite arrivent du malt légèrement sucré. Une bouche mordante, croustillante sur des notes d’agrumes et de résine. Le malt est légèrement sucré. finale d’une étonnante longueur et forte amertume. Étonnant.

SlovakSniper (4919) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
Belle mousse généreuse de son temps, dentelle déroulée et robe jaune légèrement voilée. Au nez, lager fruitée de façon large avec pamplemousse et autres objets ronds et moins ronds qui viennent des pays lointains. Belle couche herbacée et malts pâles des plus stimulants. Au goût, Citra et autres merveilles houblonnées, acidité citrique et céréales pils au poil. Extrêmement buvable. Équilibre. Finale longue, amère avec des houblons en très grande forme. Dé-li-ci-eu-se.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2015 Bottle poured into pint glass from Signal Variety, Plaistow NH. Aroma is citrus dominant over a mild yeasty and bready smell (had one of three with fairly strong yeasty ammonia/cat piss and b.o./dirty laundry smell and a little bit of bread--will give a pass that that was a bad one). Appearance is hazy yellow with nice sparkle, two finger-width fluffy white head and nice lacing. Taste still has the sour ammonia/cat piss (more than the aroma) with a strong citrus back end. Palate is medium bodied with sticky texture, somewhat astringent with average carbonation and very dry, bitter finish you can feel in your back teeth. Overall, I was really looking forward to this beer. There is a fair amount of complexity here but not all of it is good.

Bottle. Aroma is lots of herbal hops plus some citrus and grass. Tastes very grassy. Some light pilsner malt sweetness and citrus peel. Herbal finish. Doesn’t seem like a single hop citra beer at all. Just ok.

Bulk_Carrier (3552) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - AUG 5, 2015
This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking semi-hazy yellow color with a light transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising to fill a three finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light ringy foamy lacing cutting into the glass appropriately. The smell had a sweet to semi-bitter connotation of citrus spiced rind over some light biscuity breadiness. It’s backed up by a nice sweet floral aspect as well. The taste was moderately bitter with a sweetness sliding in to confide in a sweet smooth yet bitter sticky citrus aftertaste and a light sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation comes across fairly tame allowing a sticky smooth citrusto grassy feel rolling over my tongue. Overall, I say as an India pale lager it works. Not sure why it’s labeled as an Imperial lager on here. Just cause it’s got a higher ABV doesn’t mean it’s an Imperial lager. Eh, oh well, whatever. It’s good for what it is and would be a good food beer.
