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.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wegmans in Fayetteville. Pours a cloudy yellow golden color with a minimal head. Not much aroma but very clean and crisp for what’s there, maybe a little grapefruit hint. Citrusy hops with an overall crisp pils taste. Finish is slightly bitter and short. This would be a good beer for a hot summer day, very refreshing.

Bottle picked up at StateLine.. Poured in to a snifter... big ole’ rocky head, that sticks around. Light orange color which is slightly murky. Nose of tropical fruits...pineapple, banana. Taste is tropical fruits... light pineapple, pear, banana, light bitterness/hop presence in the aftertaste. Nice malty body. Reminds me Sam Adams Noble pils. Easy to drink. Cant say enough good things about this beer... definitely exceeded expectations!
