4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pine tree aroma, clear medium yellow/amber body with a white head. Delicious bitingly dry pine bitterness with a little grapefruit and pith. This is followed by a very sturdy caramel and light butterscotch sweetness that does a great balancing act. The 50 IBUs seems low for this, but it may be the lighter body of the lager that lets the bitterness shine through. This is probably the best IPL I’ve had. Sudwerk makes great German style beers, so this is quite a departure and they nailed it.

LOVE the name. Got a kinda sorta fresh bottle a little ways back. Tastes more like a pale ale than an IPL or strong pils, but it does have a hint of the pils malt taste. OK overall, nothing special, nothing to avoid. Medium sweet and bitter with light biscuit.

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.
