Fantastic lager but falls a little short on the hop aroma and hop taste compared to IPAs. Great beer though. Bitterness and malt balance make it very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the pour house. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a bit of a hoppy note followed by grass and florals. The taste is semi bitter with a grassy finish. Almost a pale ale but clearly a lager yeast.

Tap at barcade for beer week. Aroma is amazingly hoppy. Great citrus notes with a pleasant lager yeast supporting. Pours like an ordinary vienna lager with a medium head. Taste is great and hoppy but light. Notes of citrus, pine and biscuit. This is a beer I could drink all night. If Bruery were closer and cheaper, I might just do that.

Draft. Like a super grapefruit-pithy belgian ipa, yes belgian ipa, it has tons of spice, wasn’t the ginger either.

Pours golden amber with a small white head. Aroma brings sweet German hops and a pure crisp wheat maltiness. Flavor is more like a pale ale, bringing some crispa, sweet, and bitter hops.

big peach, pine and grapefruit on the nose. More of the same on the palate, but a thick pine note as well. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this at Brouwerij Lane (I think) with JDadmond after Where The Wild Beers Are. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Musk, sweet funk and chewy wheat. Fuzzy yeast, musk. Spicy musk with a big body full of heavy wheat and moving into a long bitter finish.
