3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Ernesto. Pours a hazy light orange with a modest white head. Aroma is a little off. Some pepper and almost smoke and ash. Maybe some nuts. Taste is hoppy at the front with a medium mouthfeel that by the end has a lot of the heat from the beer. Haven’t had many hot beers like this. Overall, interesting but having just had a Pizza Port Imperial Pale Lager last week this one just doesn’t stand up to it from a hop perspective.

On tap at Hops Hill. Smells like a swimming pool. Really weird. Pours a golden amber. Malty, strong alcohol flavor. Good finish. Interesting. Tastes stronger than it is.

Best IPL ever! No really, it was that good. And I’m a big fan of the Mass Rising, but this was better. All about the hops with mild to moderate bitterness. Will grab even more of this next year.

Enormous thanks MacBoost! Shared with ogivlado and Iznogud! Poured a hazy pale golden body, small white head. Superb, fresh aroma, dank, orange, onions, cat piss, just lovely! Nice, soft light body, just a vague touch of caramel, to support a nice, citric-herbal hoppiness, some onion too, lighter than expected, but superbly drinkable. Actually more complex than expected, getting more interestingly hoppy by the sip. Just great. Alcohol very, VERY well hidden. One of the best hoppy lagers ever, anywhere!

Pour from a can, consistent amber color and not cloudy. Slight head. Taste is sweet with a hop bite. Very smooth and not much aftertaste. I recommend for anyone who finds 2x IPA too aggressive. Nicely done.

16oz can. This is a great rendition of the "Double India Pale Lager" concept, with an obscene amount of tropical fruit hop character and a very light, basically imperceptible lager yeast flavor. It drinks like a DIPA, which is a high compliment.

Can from Toby. Very pale golden, fine sparse head. Light citrusy aromas, taste ticks up the tartness, tangy: prickly finish. Fairly juicy, light on the palate.
