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.

Straw-orange body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Orange zest, grapefruit, other citrus notes. Light grainy quality comes through in the flavor. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, a bit thin in the finish.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smell of citra hop. Grapefruit pith, bitter, citrus, hoppy deliciously well balanced

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.
