Draft at Ginger Man with Andrew, Brendan and Ricky. Thank christ Andrew let me try his because this would’ve been difficult to finish on my own. Pours a nice orange amber body with thick white head and medium lacing. Aroma is grain, ash and light skunky malts. Mouthfeel is not horrible - nice on the palate actually, but the flavors coming through are tough to take; notes of grain, bitter grapefruit, skunky hop, sweet crackery malts and light ashy character.

This was my first IPL, so I can’t compare it to others, but I wasn’t feeling it. Pours a cloudy gold color. I like the appearance of the unfiltered beers like this one. Aroma was an odd smell to me. I could sense some grapefruit in there. Pine taste. Anyone else kind of this it was a bit sour and kind of pungent and skunky? It was bottled end of January, could it have been bad already?

Pours a cloudy gold. Big white head that lasted till end and formed a volcano shaped formation on top and had ok lace. Aroma was grapefruit. Taste was grapefruit, malt and pine resins. Finish was pine. A okay beer, I think it would have been better in the heat of summer.

Funny beer - I find the nose to be unpleasant but the taste of citrus to be quite nice at the start but finishes slightly off. I have has this with other India style beers before so may be idiosyncratic

A wonderfully hoppy, yet sessionable lager for the spring and summer. Love the citra hops!

I kinda like the unfiltered citrus grapefruit thing going on, but something was a bit odd. Nice aroma, crisp body and aftertaste.

Bootle. Pours a adjuncty pale yellow with white head. Aroma and taste is weak citrus, weird pilsy stuff. I hate rating beer.
