Pizza Port Ocean Beach. Very pale straw-coloured pour with a thin white head. The nose is light and grassy with a distinct Saaz sort of noble hop character. Light lemon peel and a little bit of soft pine as well. Grassy Saaz finish. There is also a nice yeast contribution that gives the beer a touch of honey flavour to the malt. It’s light, well-attenuated and pretty quaffable. Very nice stuff actually.

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.

Draft at Barcade. Huge whiff of hops on the nose, Initial pine and citrus hop flavours with some grapefruit coming through as well. The malt profile works really well, The perfect combination of a light West coast IPA crossed with a lager, Very well balanced with a dry finish. Love this one!

baraciisch (2005) - California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Best lager ever.... Crisp and clean finish that you would expect from a lager, but pine and citrus hops make the foundation with a solid bitterness throughout.... Delicious, a lager for hopheads...

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.

obguthr (4070) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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.

Draft at DoG Street Pub. Amber pour with a short white head. Aroma is hoppy and floral with citrus notes and toasted malt. Taste is big floral hops, citrus fruit, toasted malt, tropical fruit and soft pine. Body is medium-full with a moderate bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, toasted malt, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, pine notes and floral hops.

msante79 (2211) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2013
In tap at The Porter in Atl. Pours clear burnt orange with nice thick white head. Aromas of bright citrus and tropical fruit and some light malt. Flavors of citrus, mango, other tropical fruits and nice dose of bitter hops with clean lager yeast. Beautiful lager. Really an IPA but extremely solid.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Pours golden amber with a small white head. Aroma brings sweet German hops and a pure crisp wheat maltiness. Flavor is more like a pale ale, bringing some crispa, sweet, and bitter hops.
