The perfect blend of West Coast piney citrus hop aromas mixed with the crisp refreshment of a German Helles lager. This classic lager style is dry-hopped with copious amounts of Amarillo, Simcoe and Cascade hops to create a new-age West Coast craft lager like none other.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle. Grassy nose, bready, some pine. Gold/amber color, 1-cm head. Thin pleasant malty initial, lightly sweet, gentle grassiness, and tiny lingering bitterness. The gentle dry-hop bitterness is the high point. Thin-medium body. A bit thick for a lager, but it is tasty stuff.

vyvvy (5015) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma has pine, cream, citrus, bready caramel and some floral notes. It has a medium crisp body with lots of prickly carbonation. The flavor starts a bit sweeter than the aroma with sweet toasted caramel and nicely balanced spicy, piney and zesty hops. The finish is clean, hoppy and bright. Pretty nice.

Lothore (602) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a deep golden hue with a small fizzy head that fades quickly. Aroma is citrus, tangerine, hints of caramel. Starts off with tangerine, light bread notes, lemon and leads to hoppy notes followed by a quick, bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. This is a nice lager. Great nose and an excellent finish.

kaser (4648) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Clear orange pour from draft at jacks cannery in San Fran. White head. Musty earthy taste. Citrus and fruit notes but not dominant. Pretty average overall but easy to drink.

thegreenrooster (3649) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a super piney hop with pale malts in the back round. Flavor is clean dry malt with a bitter hop and an almost wintergreen mint like finish. Really hoppy even for an IPL and almost drinks like an IPA. I think I just found my highest rated lager.
