Draft at Churchkey. Bright golden color, big bubble white head. Aroma of black pepper and straw. Taste is peppery lager. Tmoney99 (14846) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle. Poured a dark clear copper color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy hops, malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid brew and very good for style. crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a frothy/foamy off-white head. Smell is candied citrus, slight dank, and pale malt. The flavor is slightly acidic. It has a sharp but medium-low bitterness. Bready malt backing, slight tropical fruit, lots of lemon and citrus. Interesting choice of beer styles for their 25th as this is a style that is booming right now.

Sample at Cat’s Eye Saloon as part of Ohio Brew Week. Pours a clear bright copper color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma is citrusy with hops and malt behind it. Medium-bodied with flavors with flavors of zesty citrus, hops and roast malt. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hops aftertaste. Above average overall. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013

Nicely hopped up IPL. A great idea, be more summery if a bit less abv. A big foamy head on light orange body. Expiry date a month away. Slightly dry finish. Orange citrus and vey good drinkability. BVery (11209) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2013

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours gold with off-white head. Nose is pale malt, hops. Tastes crisp, pale malty, hoppy, smooth, with well hidden alcohol. alexsdad06 (10636) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, biscuity malts, floral hops which come off a bit soapy, grass and a splash of citrus. Dry finish with some herbal character. I just don’t really get the style. phaleslu (10546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a clear orange-hued gold with two inches of frothy off-white head that settles unevenly and leaves a ton of lace streaks and spots. Aroma of sweet and biscuity malts, grassy and floral hops, citrus peel, and a bit of a spicy kick. Surprisingly clean. Flavor of sweet malts, tangerine, floral notes, grass, and resin. Light-medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy then dry mouthfeel. Some bitterness late. I normally don’t go for the strong lagers but this isn’t bad. Must be the Dortmunder Gold influence.
