Draught @ The Bruery, Placentia, CA
Pours clear golden with a smooth head. Aroma of juicy fruits, zesty lemon, grassy hops and hints of biscuity malts. Taste is crisp, hoppy and grassy with some citrus and pine. Finish is hoppy and grassy. Tasty.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery in August 2009.
Poured a dark golden with a nice wheat head and a decent amount of lacing as it went down. The smell and taste were both fantastic. Loads of citrus hops, mostly orange; also, a bit of some tropical fruits. The taste went along very similar lines, with the addition of a nice bitterness that nicely balanced out the citrus and tropical flavors. The mouthfeel was a bit light and exceptionally drinkable. Very delicious--hopefully they bottle this.
Serving type: on-tap

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I thought I have already tried this, but Im finally rating it. Pours a semi cloudy golden color, with an off white head. Citrus, grassy, piney hops, doughy bread, and some sweetness. A simple, drinkable beer. Good thirst quencher.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An eleven for the aroma. Like biting a fresh hop. Truely the epitome of this new IPL category, the hops are citrusy and floral and linger around just the right amount. The flagship beer of this newish style.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
