A very drinkable lager. Nice combination of hops and malts. Hops shine here and the flavors of citrus and malt are complimentary. A nice session ale.

on tap 8/26/2009 at papago. hazy pour? of golden orange-ish brown with a small white head and sticky spots of lace. what a strange nose... pithy grapefruit, florals, bitter (how can i smell bitter?!), earth, a weird dustiness, spice, herbs and cardamom. the flavor is massively hoppy... herbaceously odd yet delicious!... eucalyptus/earthy menthol, cardamom, tons of spice, citrus and resin with a touch of sweet grain and a bitter finish. crazy hoppy... numbingly so! it has a substantial medium body yet it is so bitter and parching... making it all to easy to order another.9/5/8/4/16/4.2

Tap at Verdugo. Clear golden with a one finger off-white head, fading to a creamy film before long. Aroma of hops--dry-hopped to high heaven with them! Citrus, herbal, pineapple and pine hops all up in here, and lovely. The flavor is much the same--citrus and pineapple dominating with the herbal dry-hop notes following, also has some moderate dank weed notes. Not much in the malt realm. Finishes dry with lots of bitterness, peaking at a 7 and lingering. No trace of alcohol noted. Light body with moderate prickly carbonation. A most excellent hop bomb.

First beer since returning from MI/RBSG. Growler fill from t0rin0. Thanks! Pours a chill hazed gold, white head. Nose is straight up west coast. Dank, piney and citrusy, all rolled into one with the malt nowhere to be seen. Nice cattiness, likely some Simcoe in there. On taste, bitter and clean. I don’t know if I necessarily believe it is brewed with a lager strain as some nice fruity esters do come out. Really tastes quite cali ale. Bitter finish. Pretty outstanding stuff.

illidurit (2115) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
On tap at burger. in Santa Cruz. Pours a brassy orange with a thick white froth. Smells like lawn trimmings, but in a good way. Lots of grass, pine needles, and unripe grapefruit. Flavor is based on crackery malts with a big grassy hop explosion. Light bitter grapefruit in the finish. Dry and very herbal but avoids astringency. A tiny bit of malt sweetness comes through at the end. Palate is light, refreshing and dry. A great lager, very satisfying.

Medium bubble avg dissipating head. Amber - like a lager. Hoppy nose. Hoppier than the sterling version. Citrusy hoppy flavor that lingers on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (5578) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
Draft at the Birch. Golden amber with a sticky but thin top. Drinks with a definite resin-heavy hop assertiveness, but is exceptionally easy going and drinkable. The 7% ABV is somewhat evident, but not overpowering. Excellent. (#4974, 4/6/2013)

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.

On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. This was my first positive Bruery experience after trying the painful 5 Golden Rings. Incredibly hoppy lager, balanced very nicely with the yeast base.
