Draft. Had this countless times, just rating it. Seems to have gotten worse over the years. The Bruery’s IPA. Pours a golden orange with medium head that retains fairly well. Aroma is pretty spot on for resinous hops, cinnamon, hay and slight citrus. Taste is earthy, dirt, bland, lemon zest, soap. Overall, a nice change of pace from the usual stuff here and I find myself coming back to it but nothing that I really need to wish they bottle anytime soon.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is pretty gentle hops and some yeast. Taste is great to open with bubbles and citrusy hops. Don't pick up much of the lager in this one, more of a classic American style IPA. Good overall.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ Mekong. Hazy amber pour with a tiny white head. The nose is full of mango. Pretty bright, mild underarm. Very much the aroma of a ballsy IPA. The taste is of mellow orange sherbet. Toasted white bread. Grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium body, crisp. Pretty tasty stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ The Reservoir (Waterbury). Clear golden/orange wit a small white head and some lacing. Aroms if fruity with citrus, lot of hops, grassy notes and light floral presence. Taste is slight sweet with citrus, fruits and grass with a light bitter finish. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly sticky and dry finish. Very good beer. Main feature is the large amount of hops in the aroma. Drinkable and quenching.

Super fresh growler, I believe this was release day for a new batch and man can you tell. Like the difference between eating fruit off the tree and from the grocery store. The hops and malt are in full display and it is lovely. Everything is clean, clear and in balance here. I just love fresh beer.
The crazy thing to me is this tastes like a dry-hopped Brett ale -- one of my very favorite styles. I don’t drink many lagers so I don’t know if that’s typical.
For me, The Bruery really shines on this moderate ABV stuff.

Pale yellow. Nose is uber juicy like tangerine rind. Peaches, bark and orange candies. Very crass and easy to drink.

Bright golden appearance. Thick, sticky hops w/ mango flavor dominating. Not as crisp as I'd like for a hoppy lager.
