Served at the Grog by an incompetent bartender who looked as if he could be Bela Lugosi’s double. Rice flour, hops, and brief citrus were prevalent; lager yeast and its smoothness followed. Pear skins and crushed pine by swallow. I had fun with it.

Tap @ Tap and Handle Fort Collins. $7 for 10 oz. R u jokin or wat? Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with a nice white head. Super fresh hop cone, citrusy, light garlic aroma. Very dry and refreshing, citrusy, incredibly potent hoppy flavor. Fucken a bro. This is some premo shit here. Best lager I’ve had since my visit to Germany last summer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler fill from old e courtesy of some bros. Appearence is hazy gold with medium white fluff head, nice lacing. Aromas of dank and pungent hops, lots of bitter rind and floral pineyness. Taste was pretty sessionable with a good citrus hop bite in the finish. Easy going with a Medium body. Great summer drinker.

An eleven for the aroma. Like biting a fresh hop. Truely the epitome of this new IPL category, the hops are citrusy and floral and linger around just the right amount. The flagship beer of this newish style.

On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. This was my first positive Bruery experience after trying the painful 5 Golden Rings. Incredibly hoppy lager, balanced very nicely with the yeast base.

Draft at Jerry’s. Gold with huge, flotsam, white bread / Bright nose of cut pine, weed, citrus / Medium body, very hoppy with bite, good fruit to match, just superb balance with fine bitter finish / Elegant flavors of cut pine, weed, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple / Not like a lager that I’ve ever had, but a terrific pale ale.j

Taking a break from Slutfest ratings to catch up on some Mekong backlog. Told people I had something hoppy from the Bruery, but no one believed me. Gold, nice head. Aroma is massive floral and hay hops. Flavor matches, clean, with enough honey accented grain to hold it all together. Very nice, really loved this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Birch. Golden amber with a sticky but thin top. Drinks with a definite resin-heavy hop assertiveness, but is exceptionally easy going and drinkable. The 7% ABV is somewhat evident, but not overpowering. Excellent. (#4974, 4/6/2013)
