Road trips are balls-out adventures loaded with unexpected twists, just like when this beer hit black ice and got spun!. It started out as an IPA recipe, but halfway down the road it blew a tire and a Pilsner yeast was pitched as a spare; an IPP yo! The fiery Pilsner backbone adds a nitrous-like boost to the van load of hops that would make any German pucker up when those hop afterburners singe their lederhosen!

Brewed with a Lager yeast at Ale temps using Sterling hops and Pilsner Malt to make this a crisp and hoppy twisted up seasonal treat.

I dig. I haven't had many ipps so I'm not sure how to rate. Drink by yourself across the street from people you know. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a really nice blond ale, might even be willing to call it a koelsch or something but probably too hoppy for that. It’s cloudy orange yellow w/ a fine-bubbled white head and all kinds of lacing. This stuff has some bready malt character but it is all about the floral (noble?) hops. The nose is somewhat mild but when you taste it, it is simply bursting w/ mellow hop flavor. It’s medium to full bodied and just a touch sweet, which helps those hops to pop. It finishes w/ a firm, floral bitterness in the finish. This is a really good beer and I’m happy to have it in my area now.

Appearance: pours with a small white head that fades quickly, the beer is a hazy yellow color Aroma: very lightly toasted grain, corn, faint Taste: corn syrup, faint hops in there, lemon Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, corn and hop aftertaste Overall: this just reminds me of industrial lager too much, not my choice but still better than a real industrial lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JaBier (5454) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Clear gold in color with a thick white head. Aroma of crisp noble hop and some malt. Malty sweetness up front, giving way to a bitter noble finish. Nice hoppy pils that you can drink all day.

Bosco (227) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Hazy yellow, minimally effervescent. Decent lace laying. Bitter with a sharp tart bite. Some sweetness comes through the bitterness and finishes watery. Best by date: 6/8/15 Consumed on 3/30/15. $1.79/12 oz bottle at Total Wine and More Boca Raton Florida.

Bork (443) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Out of balance brew with a harsh tart bitterness that does not have a body to match. Quite drinkable but a big step down from the previous version.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light amber, solid white head, dots of lace. Taste is sweet malt that turns more bitter on the swallow, then allows a little bit of the malt to return at the back end. Drinkable, but pretty much like nearly every standard issue IPA.

355ml bottle. Though it was a session lager when handed to me. Golden pour, reminiscent of a hoppy aal. Definitely crushable but not interesting.

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Safeway ][ $1.15 ][ Mason Jar ][ 3.19.15 ]
>> Clear light golden pour, thick soapy head, good retention. Nose is lemongrass, fresh linen, mild soap. Taste is grassy, bitter, slightly dusty, good body, fairly dry, balancing sugar, fluffy white bread. Better than expected. For some reason I thought this was a witbier originally- ended up being nicely surprised.
