Yellow with white head. Aroma of hay. Flavour with malt and citrus. Alengrin (5376) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2017
Can at Uncle Babe’s in Gent. Thick and frothy, dense, stable, egg-white head; hazy peach-tinged straw blonde colour. Aroma of toasted onion or dito garlic, yellow grapefruit, bread crumbs, minerals, fresh bitter herbs, green kiwi, lettuce, celery, green olive. Neutral-ish onset, some basic malt fruitiness but no esters as expected though still a hint of kiwi (probably an early announcement of hops), spritzy and minerally carbonation, grainy and lightly bready middle, softish mouthfeel, adopting a very spicy and grapefruity, expressive New World hoppiness in the finish, drying and long bitter but not too harsh, drying. Typical IPL in which the cleanness of the typical American IPA yeast profile is extended to its logical extreme by not using ale yeast at all anymore; this idea has brought forth some interesting lagers and the hophead in me can certainly appreciate them. This one feels a bit ’green’ and the hop bitterness does become a bit harsh in the end though, perhaps a more tropical fruit and less bitter grapefruit profile with other hop varieties could have worked better. rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2014
can. Golden with one finger head. Pilsner with nice hoppy finish. Very crisp and clean flavor. Nice take on the pilsner style.

bottle at home from drinkstoreGarrold (5276) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
not as aromatic as some IPLs but perhaps a big aged now. Lupulin burning bitterness and pithy orange but little else. a bit hot.
Tap at Canalhouse, Nottingham. Hazy golden. Thin, sticky, white head. Lemon. Bitter grapefruit. Light malt. Taste is dry. Some astringency on the palate. Crisp, bitter, hoppy finish.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a hazy orange amber coloured beer that pours with a large white head of foam. It has a sweet orange and raspberry flavour followed by spicy dried fruit on the smooth, creamy finish. Excellent! CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Lasting creamy white head atop a clouded, sediment filled gold body. Nose of weed, citrus, fruit, phenolic and cardboard. Decent hop front, not terribly traditional - but hey, this is Evil Twin Brewing. Good bitterness yet not clean. Some spiciness. Okay. DialSquare (5031) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2015
On tap at Giant Eagle in Grandview: gold pour with thin white head. aroma of floral, caramel, grass. tastes are bready, spice, dry, grass, lemon. thin to medium palate. grass bitter finish. 7.2 travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle. The look is a lacing white head, clear look, and golden in color. The smell is grain, perfume, cereal, and ok. The taste is cereal, chex, grainy, and crisp. MarcoDL (4964) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Golden beer, small head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is grainy, with some nice fruity hops and a note of banana. Tasty, especially for a pilsner. Still, the body is too thin. Low fermentation has its limits.
