3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 12 oz bottle from Costco. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head that quickly diminishes. The aroma is features pine tar, salt and lightly toasted grains. The taste is malt forward with biscuit and breads backed up by mildly bitter grapefruit hops. The palate is silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and semi-sweet with lingering grains. Overall: Decent lager.

Nice pine aroma; non description light amber appearance with decent head that thinned out.
Taste isn't bad but disappointed. The Ipa and lager weakened each other rather than blending into something really enjoyable or interesting. The Ipa bite felt watered down. But I liked the idea and appreciate the attempt.

Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. The aroma is full of pine and resinous hops, as well as a little biscuit malt. The flavor is similar. I get a ton of hop flavor with some nice grapefruit and pine notes. I also get some biscuit malt. The bitterness is about medium and is very high for a pale lager. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-orange color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish caramel, pine and a bit of dish soap. The flavor was tangy sour caramel, moderate pine and a touch of perfume. Medium length pine and perfume finish. Medium body. Ok.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear golden amber with a nice white head and some lacing, aroma has a little but if citrus and hops, more bread than anything, the flavor has a nice hop front end with a crisp finish, not bad at all

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow, 2/24/13
Aroma: It has a clean grassy nose, some citrus zest, and some pine hops too
Appearance: Pours a clear golden-orange color with a small head that leaves coating lace
Flavor: The taste is nice and clean, with some light sweetness and a nice, clean hop finish
Palate: This one has lots of drinkability, it is tingly, clean and soft, with a smooth, dry finish
I was fairly impressed by this one. It is a quite nice beer. This one is very clean and has a nice, crisp hoppiness to it. Good idea, good execution. Quite sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As advertised, tastes like an IPA with a little Sam Adams lager mixed in. Takes a little getting used to but it's not bad. Not sure if I'd buy this regularly but if I saw it on the menu at a restaurant/bar I'd probably order one.

Hay color, generous head. Large hoppy bite at the start that lasts to the end, mingling with creamy fruit and spice to finish.
