3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, golden yellow with a thinner, yet lingering, white head. The aroma is more mild, with lemon, pine, and floral hops. Taste picks up from the weak aroma. Lemon and pine remain, but are complimented with orange, caramel, more of an herbal hoppy flavor, and mild spices. It has tart impressions throughout and is a bit bitter. Aftertaste is lemon, orange, and faint pine. Medium bodied, slick in texture, with average carbonation. Kind of refreshing upon drinking. This one isn’t bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Noticed on bottle that this is a lager and not an ale, so my expectations was pretty low for it. Light amber brew with a small head. Oddly it almost smells like transmission fluid, luckily I don’t mind that aroma since I like working on old trucks. Taste is pine, spice, hint of citrus. Has to be the best lager I have ever had.

Enjoyable, smooth IPA. Nothing extraordinarily distinctive but still well crafted.
