3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2006 Tap: bright orange with huge rocky head. Great lacing. Aroma has a huge citrus zest kick to it. Lots of orange and grapefruit zest. Has a residuel pine resin aroma hiding in the background. Flavor has the same huge citrus zest to it, tiny bit of malt sweetness towards the finish. Would pass for a fine ipa. Assuming it was fermented cooler/lager? Certainly doesn’t resemble a pale lager.

On tap: Excellent orange and citrus hop aroma. Pours a mostly transparent orange with a touch of haze and a nice white head with decent retention and great lacing. Lots of sweet orange up front with a big grapefruit hop finish. Listed as a pale lager, but really comes across as a real hoppy, but well balanced IPA. Very nice. Has to be the best Pale Lager I’ve ever had.
