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.

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.

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

Tap at the í09 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 Iíve come to expect from The Bruery.

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 donít 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.

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.

Had this and the many hop varieties at the Bruery a few weeks back. Color was an orange/amber. Aroma was great for the style; very IPA-ish. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus; hoppy. Flavor was also good, if not as great as the aroma. Earthy and citrus. One of the best in the style for me.
