4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into lager glass.
Deep golden orange with a humongous frothy head that subsided to a tight layer with tons of lacing start to finish. Aroma was malty, earthy, some yeast, citrus fruit, a slight but of pine resin. The citrus aroma reminds me of lemon lime hard candies. Get the malts immediately on he sip, then a huge blast of citrus more grapefruit than the nose suggested. Earthy underneath, nice hit of bitterness, not overwhelming. Tiny bit of breadiness or yeast, slightly toasty. Flavor hits and passes quickly, and grapefruit and maybe mango linger just a bit. Very clean and refreshing, light on the palate. Finishes dry and makes you want more. The carbonation is light and refreshing. Very drinkable and can see this on a hot summer day.

A great hoppy IPL with a just the right amount of bitterness and a dry finish. Has a gold color and a frothy white head when poured. The hops permeate the aroma.
I’m thankful to be able to buy this on the regular in Massachusetts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a honey gold color topped by a medium-sized rocky beige head. Aroma is light grainy malt and tropical fruit hops. First sip is light malt and subtle citrus hops. Very smooth with medium body. Bitter hops come in around midtaste. Very drinkable with nice malt/hop balance. At 6.5% ABV, the alcohol only appears late in finish, though it is unobtrusive. Great clinging lace to boot. Outstanding!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
IPL. If you are a hophead and think lagers are wimpy, then this is a godsend. But I still don’t think it works as well as an IPA. The body is too clean to resist the hops, and the result is something that ends bitter (although I myself have a high tolerance for that sort of thing). West Coast grapefruit and pine with a cheesy aftertaste. Not a lot of aroma for its taste. It’s pretty good, but I’d rather they used ale yeast.

Quality stuff! Pours transparent gold w/ a white head & decent lacing. The aroma is a huge burst of west coast floral hops! The taste is hpppy yet clean & crisp at the same time. Tasty & highly drinkable. If this is a Pilsner, I see why it’s at the top! Terrific!
