3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a monster off-white head that has great retention and ample sticky lacing. The arom ais a bit understated with caramel, sweet grains and indistinct citrus. The taste features a big hoppy blast that is pleasantly bitter. Flavors present in the taste are grapefruit, pine, melons, apricots, light caramel and peanut butter. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Loved it--perhaps my favorite IPL to date.

Loved the name, and the idea of an india pale lager intrigued me. It is similar to an IPA, just less intense. Super drinkable and refreshing.

Like an IPA mixed with a dark lager, strange but good. Pours nice a bright amber with a medium head and threading present throughout. Woody taste with forward hops and a malty brown aftertaste reminiscent of a bitter lager. Overall a strange but pleasant brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hop forward brew. pours a nice light hoppy head with beautiful color. slight maltiness on the tongue at first taste, then the citrus, piney hops take over. I would recommend this beer to anyone who loves full flavored ipa’s.

It has a pleasantly thick mouthfeel with a great biscuity backbone, but the star of the show is the orange citrus hoppiness. Brandon picked this up on our trip to SF in 2014.

Bomber. Pretty darn good. Pours a clear orange with fizzy white bubbles. Aroma doesn’t really hint at the Cascade bomb that follows. Clean lager with hops well-showcased. Citrus, bread, light malt sweetness. Balanced and tasty. Would buy again.
