hawthorne00 (3953) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle, bb 2/18 apparently. Pale orange with a modest loose white head. 2 Aroma of mandarins, lemons and a little pineapple with hay and silage skulking underneath about to no particular effect. Not anything like clean with some boiled oranges and spicy pasture. Zesty citrus goes missing. Moderate but nagging bitterness. Not too flash.

Light lemon in the nose. Nice lemon flavor along with ending on a bitter hop bite.

Tmoney99 (14495) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2017
Draft. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex hop and malt aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well worth having.

DOC: 3/15/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 34C Experimental Style (base styles: 5D German Pils; 18B American Pale Ale)

AROMA: Strong citrusy hops (especially lemon) with a touch of rye-like spiciness. Base malt is nondescript with no sweet notes. Clean fermentation profile. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Banana yellow hue, slight haze but otherwise clear and effervescent. Small white foam mostly dissipates. No lacing. 2/3

FLAVOR: Quite hoppy throughout in terms of both flavor and bitterness. Strong lemon pith flavor at first followed by green tea at the apex and light pine flavor on the finish. Faint spicy sensation in the aftertaste. Malt base imparts no particular sweetness or distinctive flavors but offers balance. Adjuncts offer little to no flavor. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light body; medium-high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing; very quaffable. Seems much lighter and more sessionable than 5.5% ABV. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: This is essentially an APA done as a lager and it works well. I’d prefer a little more malt presence, but palette is enjoyable as is. 8/10

TOTAL SCORE: 38/50

Itzjerm (2869) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Interesting this is listed as a pilsner by founders. but true it is a hoppy lager. Has a lasting head. And the nose remains with lots of hops. This truly is an impressive low gravity ipl. I enjoyed this. On draft. Mouthfeel is crisp and spot on for a pilsner. Nice

60minuteman (1718) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle from Beer Mill. Smells almost purely like weed with notes of straw, citrus, water and pale hops. A medium-full bodied beer. Frothy. Watery and bitter at the same time. Dry hops, straw and wheat. This is in the 84th percentile??
