COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Appealing light orange almost wheat beer color with light fruit & spice on the nose. Bitter all the way through.

Pours a clear gold. Lemon, honey, citrus on the nose. Herbs and spices, sweet citrus. Nice summer ale.

Bottle. Aroma and taste have plenty of Pilsner character. A touch of spice and dryness. Body is a bit heavier though. Nice crisp carbonation. Ok, but don’t really care for the style.

Light golden orange color with white head. This has a light aroma with pale malt and slight hops. Simple and easy beer to drink.

Golden orange color with hardly any head. Smells of malt, spice and citrus. Taste is spicy hops and citrus, with a lingering after taste of of a crisp spice. I am not as impressed with this as I thought I would be. Still better than Heineken, but not something I would put on my list of good brews

ttutony (770) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Hazy orange with a white head. Not much on the aroma, a little grain and slightly yeasty funky smell. Palate has some more of a phenolic yeast note along with cereal grain and a slight citrus flavor.
