Growler courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a hazy yellow with a huge white head. Nose is a shit-ton of hops. It sure is an India Pale Lager... there is a bit of light malt in there, but this one is mostly piney hops with hints of citrus and floral. Flavor is a West-Coast IPA, but a bit lighter in body. This one was a great surprise. Very nice, indeed.

Draft. Yellow pour with white head. Light lager tones. Ginger Randall doesn’t really effect flavor, had each in comparison.

obguthr (4427) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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.

Tap. Pours clear golden with a large creamy beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is light pine, citrus, Passionfruit, guava, musk melon. Flavor follows, light sweet and medium bitter, fruity, tropical, a bit dank. Pretty nice finish with lingering tropical bitterness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured vibrant golden/yellow with a thick forming white head. Nice retention and lacing. Nose had big floral and spicy hops. Great mouthfeel, perfect amount if carbonation. Big hop spicing and bitterness and enough malt sweetness to balance it. Bordering an IPA with bitterness and hoppiness, but a clean lager finish made it awesome.

Draft @ Good Karma, San Jose. Light haze in a gold liquid. Aroma is big citrus and hints of cat pee. Citra hops? Am I right with the Citra? Lots of fruit aromas. Body and mouthfeel is right for the style, light bitterness. The flavor is rather good for the style. Lots of fruity citrus balanced with biscuit / dough malt. Crisp finish with nice tropical fruit flavor. Really simple to drink could border on the IPA 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.

RobertDale (4097) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 6, 2010
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.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2013
On tap at Father’s Office, Santa Monica. Certainly a fairly standard lager pour, albeit a bright, brimful, and healthy one. But a quick snort reveals a pungent hoppy brew that balances pine and dry lager notes nicely in the nose. Lively mouthfeel, clean and dry throughout on the palate. Strong citrus comes through in the taste, and while it’s certainly balanced enough in all the appropriate ways, this grapefruity, spicy brew is proudly and satisfyingly bitter.

joeneugs (3979) - 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.
