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.

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.

PhillyCraft (4765) - 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.

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, floral notes. Tastes of floral, grapefruit and lemon lime citrus fruit and peel. Medium body with a dry finish. Great stuff, drinks almost like an IPA.

TimE (4547) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2014
Deep golden color, frothy white head, nice carbonation. Sharp hoppy nose that is fairly herbal with oranges and peaches. The mouth is a bit heavy, full on hop assault, but sufficient enough backbone to balance everything out. Big bad bitter finish. Very aggressive. Hops just linger and linger. Fantastic and really well executed.

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.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Gold and clear appearance with a white head. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus zest, tropical fruits and light husky, toasty grains. Medium body with a nice smooth feel. Nicely done, an excellent lager and a nice quaffer.

maxwelldeux (4270) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2014
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.

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.
