blankboy (7928) - Toronto, Ontario, - FEB 2, 2018
[Can (473ml)] Pours a hazy golden-orange with a huge lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is bready, fruity, lightly hoppy and maybe a touch herbal. Flavour (7+) of bready malt, fruit and piney hops -- tastes like what you imagine and IPL would taste like. Medium bodied. Pretty good and enjoyable.

11/19/2016 -- from notes: 16oz can, from Dutch's. Nice big floral hop. Good sort of mildly bready malt base. Very clean. Clear golden orange color, bigger white head leaving great lace. Nice full, fluffy medium body. Mild slick. Creamy texture. Moderate bitter, lighter sweet. Very tasty IPL - great to enjoy with some fried eggs. Enjoyed this much more than I typically do with Hoof Hearted beers..

This was quite nice. A good hop yet still smooth. Didn't pour crystal clear at all but the taste was nice. Good first beer from both of these breweries.

16oz can from the ATG crew. Slightly hazy more than crystal clear. Orange-tan. Foamy white head. A pretty awesome IPL. Not overboard with the hops, more of a nice modern tinged hop balance..even though the Ella hops are not super distinguishable to me. Really well made and also stood the test of time. Solid offering.

Dogbrick (14391) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2017
Pours from the can a cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrus, piney hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of tropical fruit, citrusy hops, pine and bready malt. The finish is fruity with a hops and pine aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.2
JStax (7399) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2017
Draft sample at Against the Grain. The beer is a hazy yellow with a white head of foam. Creamy and herbal bitter notes. Sweet and herbal throughout. Dry. Some pineapple as well. Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.9
drpimento (3875) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Not all that hoppy. Great body, appearance, balance, and finish though. Easy drinking beer.

3.5
rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2017
can. Golden with one finger head. Light body, moderate hops, quite pilsner-like. Bitterness is somewhat restrained for the style. Averageish, perhaps slightly above..

balloonbuffoon (809) - - JUL 24, 2017
16floz can, bottom of can has "05.04.2018" perhaps a BBD, $3.50 single, pint glass. Aroma: herb hop dust. Appearance: Light gold with a large billowy white head. Taste: grassy. Palate: Medium bodied, carbonation, and bitterness. Overall: pretty good, clean beer.

3.8
Braudog (6945) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Can. So, to me "India Pale Lager" means is like Haywards. The beer community just keeps making up new "styles." But whatever. This is musty yellow with a lopsided poofy head. It has a bit of a hoppy American sniff, but definitely has a bit of a lagery base. So I suppose this lives up to the promise. Enjoyable. (#6679, 6/29/2017)
