COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dream Machine, an India Pale Lager or IPL, is a melding of varied visions of an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager. Once poured, its light copper color delights the eyes and a citrusy hop aroma flows through the nose. Upon first sip, a smooth hop bitterness reveals itself - fresh, bold and slightly spicy - before subtle hints of mild maltiness appear. A big hop bite and a crisp, clean lager finish combine for a beautifully balanced beer. Take Dream Machine for a spin and let your reverie begin.

Tasty beer. The IPL is now on ky radar, between this and the Sam Adams version. Clean finish, soft mouthfeel. Fairly light and easy to drink.

DruncanVeasey (8056) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Can off cousin Matt. Dusty orange with a generous, dense-lacing head. Aroma of vanilla, vomited pine and peach throat sweets. Soggy honeyed peach-infused batter and wholemeal flavour. Not remotely lager-like. Or beer like, really. Peach, sick and menthol. Aniseed or caraway. All unsubtly mashed together. Why would you make a beer taste like this? Strange fluid.

Bif (2104) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a fair head and bit of lacing. Aroma of citrus, bit of malt sweetness and is quite floral. Taste of citrus, bit of caramel and grain. Moderate bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp with a bit of a grainy feel.

nimbleprop (7628) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle at an art opening pours clear orange with some cloudy, white head. Nose is OK, grass, lemon, some grist, a little stale. Flavor follows right along, a little cardboard, grass, straw, mild malt. Dry finish. OK.

"Dream Machine" my ass! This stuff is a bloody nightmare.Val Blatz dreamed a little dream and his blessed pleasure elixir was born.....and that ushered in an unheralded era of peace, prosperity and wanton bacchanalian orgies of unheralded proportions. When you want to wake from the dream of dreams to find yourself in lockdown at the local jail, imbibe a case of Blatz and LIVE THE DREAM!!!!

Pours a deep golden yellow. Nice aromas of hops/citrus/peppery. Nice hoppy flavor, spicy/pepper, alcohol shows up in the back end.

pkbites (885) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle. Nose of malt, caramel, faint citrus. Dark amber pour with white head that died too quickly. Initial watery mouth feel, but then the hops show up. Kind of an odd thing if you ask me. After taste is late but nicely bitter. Slightly higher alcohol content not detected. Little malt. Leaves a bitter coating in the mouth. Kind of a strange brew, but overall OK.

Sirmixsomewhat (215) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
I like Dream Machine, but I dont love it. Its bitter enough to want to cook with rather than drink, and as a beer for cooking, its quite good. Ive used it in the crock pot with chicken a half dozen times and it really adds something to it.

jmgreenuk (8015) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle at Brewerkz, Sentosa Boardwalk, Singapore. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, light caramel resin hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light citrus, toffee resin hop bitter palate and a lingering light bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

drjoeng (946) - SINGAPORE - OCT 27, 2015
5.7%ABV. IPL. Poured out of the bottle a slightly cloudy amber. 16SRM. Nose is beery and wheaty with a clean citrus finish. Mouthfeel is carbonated and light. There are sweet, malty, bready, biscuit flavors, cut by some nice fresh hops. The finish is brief, clean with a herbaceously fresh bitterness. Nice balanced lager. Not much character, but a very balanced, well thought out and executed brew. Very nice and very pleasant recommended for first time hop explorers.
