COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the German tradition but influenced by the American love for hops. It’s something we call an IPL – an India Pale Lager. Extraordinarily light in color, this delicate looking beer hides the full force of hop flavor within. Torpedoed with Simcoe, Citra, Columbus and Amarillo hops, it features a profoundly fruity aroma with notes of citrus, apricot and pineapple.

Tap at Iron Horse. Pours clear lighter gold. Small white head. Nose is mild kumquat, orange pulp, Taste is mega hoppy, heavy citrus, squashy noble hop character. Bitter nuttiness, heavy orange peel. Very quenching, clean. Noble hop pilsener like. Palate is dry an nutty. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore and enjoyed in the company of Livermore spokesman, ratebeer’s own, joeneugs. It pours clear gold with a white head and sheet lacing. The aroma offers up some sweetness, solid floral hops and some citrus too. The taste is crisp with floral hop bitterness blending into lime and lemon like citrus notes. This is fresh crisp and pretty darn good too.

Clear golden pour with a white head. Nice hoppy nose. Citrus peel, flowers, and a bit of tropical fruit. Some sweet bread, a bit of biscuit, and mild yeast. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Some biscuit and bready malt, floral hops, citrus peel, and light tropical fruit character. A mild bitterness on the finish.

Growler from Spirits Brick where the brewmaster himself on this one works, nice job Scott. Pours a clear darker shade of straw with an average sized mostly white head. Aroma of dry citrus rind, toast, touch of dry apricot and peach skin, grains. Medium bodied with average to stronger carbonation with and a coating mouthfeel that dries out. Flavor of toast, dry citrus, wheat bread, even a touch of dry nutt shells. Solid.

joeneugs (3118) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 12, 2012
On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore. It pours a clear copper orange color with an off white head. The aroma is very dense with a good balance of piney and citrus hops with some darker, sweeter malts. The flavor is the same. Very hoppy and bitter with some light notes of kilned and caramel malts, but the hops definitely dominate this beer. This was supposed to be a lager, but it tastes a lot like Torpedo to me, only a little drier.
