Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head...solid lacing and retention. Aroma has nice grass and light hoppy spice. Flavor has great hoppiness...fresh...grassy and spicy...solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and silky with a dry grassy finosh that is fresh and pungent. Very nice.

On tap at The Bruery, poured into taster. Hazy yellow in appearance with thin white head that settles to a persistent film. Leaves some lacing. Aroma is hop-forward with citrus, floral, and pine. There is a little grain, too. Hops carry the day in taste, too, with a moderate bitterness that is less than expected based on the nose. A thin ribbon of sweet malts is perceptible in the background. Nothing shocking in the palate: medium body, crisp texture, average carbonation, dry bitter finish.

Butters (3983) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Sampled on draft at Mekong. Clear straw pour with very ample pillow top white head. Nice clean citrusy hop With not any floral or fruity notes. Its kinda like an american hopped pale pilsner. not Too spicy. Interesting, but I’d rather just have them make sours...

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Pours a nice, clean, clear amber. Not a pleasant aroma, but doesn't taste bad. Clean taste (symbol could be Mr. Clean). Hops and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (13535) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Tap at Proletariat, NYC, 25/11/13. Additional thanks to Puzzl for confirming which beer I’d had at a later date! Lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white head, good lacing ensues. Nose is tarte grapefruit, bitter orange, lemon sherbet, citric dipped straw, light funk. Taste comprises orange pith, grapefruit, toasted malt, tarte orange peel, grassy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy finale. Decent, a little differnt form the Bruery, hopped up pils.

joeneugs (4453) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 31, 2013
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a golden yellow color with a thick white head. Nice aroma of lemon rind, pilsner malt and hard citrus candy. The flavor is big with lemon rind bitterness and lots of florals. A bit too intense with bitterness in the finish, but otherwise a top notch IPL.

At bruery tasting room. It is an IPL and is really well done. The crispness of the lager allows formerly masked hop flavor and aroma to come forward. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

epiphyte707 (66) - eureka, California, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours golden clear orange thin layer of suds. Smells like a field of humulus lupulus on a beautiful sunny cool day, piny, touch of citrus and sweet sugar cane. Tastes light biscuity and green hop floral slight citrusy zesty presence such subtle crisp clean malt finish with hops lingering. This has the hops presence of pliny but the body of a pale. So drinkable and satisfying.
