Can. Lemon yellow with a big head. Smell is floral IPA in nature. Imperial pils? No way. From the start this is IPL, donít let stupid descriptions fool you. However, one thing that differs from an IPA is it has some decent carbonation. This leaves me wondering if bell makes an IPL or if this was supposed to be it. Yep, this is way past a strong old country biting pils, this is india pale pilsner. IPA personality is over the top and down the side. Why does every beer out there have to taste like a bullshit IPA today? WHATEVER superspak (5517) - Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2016
12 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 6/9/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy pale straw/yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-medium pine/herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, lemon/orange peel, pine, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and creamy/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.3%. Overall this is an excellent hoppy pale lager. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering. theisti (4114) - Kansas, USA - AUG 10, 2016
12 oz can purchased as a single at House of Brews in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Pkgd 062316 stamped on bottom of can. The pour is a clear golden with a 2 inch frothy white head that falls noisily with splothcy lace. The aroma is fresh pine spruce with fresh cracker malt. The taste is the pine spruce resin up front, followed by the clean cracker malt and finishing dry with warming alcohol. The palate is medium to light bodied with fine active carbonation and the dry warming alcohol with pine mineral finish. Well executed, clean, easy drinking and fresh.

12 oz. can from Old Town; pgkd 6/16/16. Aroma: Moderate lemon curd, light pale cereal, lighter pine. Appearance: Rich yellow with soft carbonation holding up a foamy white head that settles into a patchy ring. Flavor: Pine and cereals lightly up front with a growing lemon curd hop presence; the finish is bitter and lemony. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A nicely done strong pale lager that showcases just how tasty this style can be when obtained fresh and not from the old Soviet Bloc. Bif (2237) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2016

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a clear yellow color with a small white head. Someone at the bar talked about how much hype this beer has. Whatever hype this might have, Iíd say itís real. Delicious beer. One of the better lagers I have ever had. Nice crisp notes, sweet grain, light biscuit malt. Tasty. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Can from TODD! Thanks!
A: Pale gold with an enormous white head.

T: Quite bitter, sweet underneath.
M: Medium body, quite dry, crisp carbonation, significant alcohol burn.
