Draft at the Bistro’s IPA Fest. Hazy yellow gold with a huge pale yellow glass lacing head. Nose of ivy and piney hops. Flavor was lightly bitter with some caramel and grainy bread.

Draft: Whole lemon and orange peel nose, fresh. Clear amber, medium head, abundant carnonation erupting from the bottom of the glass. An intensely fresh and juicy punch of tangerine and lemon initially, giving way to orange peel. Lager? Outstanding, although not within guidelines, example of the style.

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...

Draught. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose has some slight corn elements, but has a very pleasant floral hoppiness coming off it. Taste is fairly bitter, yet remains crisp and fresh. Really pleasant beer.

Growler thanks to Will. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong wheat grass and corn. Medium mouthfeel with nice wheat grass, floral hop lingering bitter finish. Yes.

Tap at the ’09 Bistro IPA Festival in Hayward, CA. India Pale Lager, eh? This beer is a hazy straw color (not pale lager like) with a lasting white head. Aroma is malt/grain and some citrusy hops. Flavor is pale malt and grain with grapefruit and pineapple. Light-medium body. Pretty good overall, as I’ve come to expect from The Bruery.

Huge thanks to Sean for this impossible to get DONG... bright murky gold, light tan head, looks good for a growler... smells great, tons of tropical fruits, grapefruit and pineapple, the finish is a touch of alcohol pines... the taste is mostly hops, loses most of the sweetness, more herbal than anything, with some lemon and pine, really easy to drink

Sampled at GABF on 9-18-2010. Comes a cloudy gold with a nice white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and pine. Tastes of citrus and malt. Some bitterness. A bit dry. Enjoyed it.

First beer since returning from MI/RBSG. Growler fill from t0rin0. Thanks! Pours a chill hazed gold, white head. Nose is straight up west coast. Dank, piney and citrusy, all rolled into one with the malt nowhere to be seen. Nice cattiness, likely some Simcoe in there. On taste, bitter and clean. I don’t know if I necessarily believe it is brewed with a lager strain as some nice fruity esters do come out. Really tastes quite cali ale. Bitter finish. Pretty outstanding stuff.
