Fantastic brew, would never really have guessed it was a lager. Clean, crisp, fruity bouquet. A little dank on the palate in just the right way, with a very nice, soft, mild malt character fully supporting the hops.

Draft at Jerry’s. Gold with huge, flotsam, white bread / Bright nose of cut pine, weed, citrus / Medium body, very hoppy with bite, good fruit to match, just superb balance with fine bitter finish / Elegant flavors of cut pine, weed, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple / Not like a lager that I’ve ever had, but a terrific pale ale.j

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.

On tap at the shack for Sacramento beer week. Aroma is very hoppy. Nice earthy and citrus hop flavor. Being a lager the hops are very bright. Palate is clean and finishes witha long bitterness/oily. Nice head and lacing. Pretty clear pour. Overall delicious, the bruery never disappoints!

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a murky apricot color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was very strong sweet peach, apricot, orange and fruit cocktail. The flavor was very strong peach, apricot, pineapple, orange and fruit cocktail. Turns a bit dry and harsh then follows with a long finish of peach, apricot, pineapple and fruit cocktail. Thick and full bodied. Outstanding!

Floral nectar nose, light bready malts hiding in background. Strong herbaceous and floral hops start the flavor off, followed by layers of citrus, cracker, biscuit, and a sticky, resinous, dank finish. Seriously phenomenal on every level imaginable.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Cloudy golden color with a nice fluffy white head, good carbonation.
S: A great combination of pine and grapefruit, a bit floral as well (seems to be the case with all Bruery beers, however).
T: An excellent crisp bitterness, like the nose, lots of pine and citrus are immediately present. Not much malt character, which is very well suited for this beer (I think, anyway).
M: Medium body, very plentiful carbonation as well.
D: For as hoppy and apparently high in ABV as this is, you could certainly drink a lot of this (which is why I got my growler filled with it).

Pours a golden translucent color with a two finger head. Sick aroma, so pungent, in your face with hops. Tastes and smells like an ipa, finishes like a lager. Solid beer!

Draft at Mekong.
Excellent clean lager with great grassy hop character and light citrus, an excellent beer and the kind of thing I wish they made more available.
