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.

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...

PhillyCraft (3954) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Growler fill from old e courtesy of some bros. Appearence is hazy gold with medium white fluff head, nice lacing. Aromas of dank and pungent hops, lots of bitter rind and floral pineyness. Taste was pretty sessionable with a good citrus hop bite in the finish. Easy going with a Medium body. Great summer drinker.

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.

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.

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

Taking a break from Slutfest ratings to catch up on some Mekong backlog. Told people I had something hoppy from the Bruery, but no one believed me. Gold, nice head. Aroma is massive floral and hay hops. Flavor matches, clean, with enough honey accented grain to hold it all together. Very nice, really loved this one.
