3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille de 500 ml, merci beaucoup à David. Arômes de houblons américains (zest d’orange et résine). Très légères notes sulfureuses au nez. Robe dorée et limpide, effervescence moyenne et légère dentelle. En bouche, le houblon se montre plutôt aromatique, tirant surtout sur des notes d’agrumes et de résine. Le caractère de fermentation demeure présent, avec de légères notes sulfureuses. Belle texture souple en bouche et finale relativement douce. Très facile à boire.

On tap, Ginger Man NYC. Bright golden, thick white foam, nice to see a bright hoppy beer! Clean grainy body, booze hidden well, hint of some rich tea biscuit sweetness, lingering bitterness from hops. Nice strong lager, have to say I didn’t get the real aromatics and flavour of the west coast hops as much as some reviewers, but it was a pretty tasty beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12-ounce can pours hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma: pine, pineapple. Flavor: all of the above, plus white pepper. Medium-bodied. Flavor: caramel, brown sugar, bubblegum, dark bread, pepper, pinecones. Rich mouthfeel. There’s a sweetness that assaults your tastes buds and lingers a bit too long for me. Too malt-forward for me, so cloying. Their Excess IPL is a more pleasant beer, but I acknowledge it’s all personal preference.

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!

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!
