COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap. Pours clear pale Amber, small off white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is pretty straight pine. Flavor is strong pine resin, light sweet and quite bitter, pretty one dimensional. Light body, lingering bitterness.

tightslice (413) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 3, 2015
On tap at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Pours a dark gold. Aroma is herbal candy, malts, honey. Taste is earthy, herbal, malts... interesting flavors here but took a few turns to get used to.

Lothore (595) - 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 (4063) - 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 (3533) - 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.

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a yellowish with one finger of white head. Aroma is slightly floral but with some pine hoppiness. Clean beer. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

944play (372) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Diamond bright deep gold with scant bubbles. Rubbery off note gets in the way of nicer Graham cracker and mango. Flavor tracks a similar path. A mite seltzery where I’m looking for a bit more chub.

Gold, clear, off-white head. Medium body, grainy-sweet malt, big spicy and floral hops, slight buttery note, interesting beer.
