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.

DruncanVeasey (7307) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Keg, The Pony (UES), 19/02/14. Bright lager looks with a narrow white collar leaving lace specks. Slightly vegetal, fried chip, plantain aroma with lime shavings and barley squash. Dry and brittle with curry leaf, woodland notes, lingering popcorn-like pale English malt. Bitter afters more in English GA camp than lager. Expect more from any beer brewed with Citra. Just OK.

The real deal. 7.99 for a 6’er? This is an awesome beer for the money. Yes some of us really enjoy cat piss. New Zealand whites and Citra hops. Love it! Thanks for this as you did wrong by dropping Stovepipe

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours a cloudy pale yellow to golden yellow with a tremendous white puffy head that takes forever to settle down. Lacing galore. Floral, pine hops explode in the aroma even before my nose touches the glass. Also some toasted biscuit and muted sweetness running a distant second. Almost medium body but smooth. How about them citra hops? You like floral bitterness in your beer you will be entranced by the taste. Lingers.

Draft at blue monk. Another solid offering from otter creek. Golden straw, medium to fuller body. Citrusy bitterness, straw and grass. Nice mouthfeel, active. Great flavor, well done

nimbleprop (5076) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 1, 2014
12oz bottle pours a hazy, straw yellow with lots of frothy white head. Nose is awesome, bright lemon peel lemon juice, very grassy, straw, some lime, lots of dank hop pellet. Flavor is strong too, more orange than lemon this time around, grassy, lime, zesty, chive, mild sweetness. Crisp, grassy finish. Really drinkable. Wow, really nice.

Bottle from Bert’s Pours a slightly hazy medium straw color with a huge tightly bubbled bone white head that persists forever being constantly fed buy a stream of carb bubbles. Aromas of floral, pine, grass, citrus, and a hint of sulfur atop a light bready pilsner malt base. The flavor is very light crackery malt with a fair amount of spicy earthy citrusy hops. Hop bitterness is quite present as there is little in the way of malt body to counter it. Light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Smells pretty damn good, tastes ok but really needs a hint more body for my tastes.

emacgee (4093) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Pours a soft and pale straw blonde with two fingers of crackling white head. Nose shows an intense hop profile dominated by citrus and ’dank’ notes with a grassy background. A light malt sweetness balances things out. Very dry and grassy flavor with a touch more bitterness than I’d like. A green astringency develops and lasts a bit more than I’d like.

RichieBoy (27) - Getzville, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Aroma is citrus (grapefruit) hops and pine. Appearance: Yellow, cloudy color with a small, sudsy white head that laced nicely all around the glass. Taste is acidic with grapefruit hops up front and piney on the end. Light to medium bodied that was more oily than watery. Overall its one of my new favorites!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5022) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2014
If you drank the piss straight from the cat it would taste and smell just like this. +++ Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a vibrant yellow-golden color with a small foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was very strong cat piss, pine and more cat piss. The flavor was very strong cat piss, pine, pepper and more cat piss. Long cat piss finish. medium body. Amazingly foul!

Nice hints of citrus, though not tart or sweet. Punchy, some yeast and a balanced hops-centric finish. Refreshing and very drinkable.
