India Pils Lager
Our spring seasonal offering brewed with 100 percent positive vibrations and single-hopped with Citra hops. The presence of the Citra hop is elevated by a clean fermenting lager yeast that allows the subtle Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malts to lay a crisp, bready foundation. The citrus and tropical fruit character of the Citra hop comes from kettle additions followed by a huge dose of ‘em again in the fermenter.

Enjoyed in Vermont on our 2017 Easter trip with friends. Poured a light golden colour, slightly hazed, with a big frothy off-white head, good retention and lots of thick creamy-foamy lacing. Grapefruit aromas with grassy notes of saaz over pils malts. Still lots of grapefruit in the taste, overpowering the rest. Mouthfeel is a mix between creamy and dry, with a nice bitter finish. Not feeling much the pils notes as the hops take over. Still, a nice refreshing citra and mantra IPA-style brew.

Tap at RFD. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus with a mild cat pee aspect. Med +body. Flavor is citrus in a near burning way. Nice malt support . Excellent. It wants to be dank.

12 oz. bottle, part of a mixed 12 pack from a local grocery store. Reasonably priced too. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a 2 finger rocky white head. Head leaves bits and pieces of lace. Strong citrus aroma. Clean and sharp. Lemons and limes. Same with the flavor. Sharp citrus flavor backed by light pilsner malt. Light bodied with a dry finish. Very nice!

2 month old bottle > chalice.
A: Poured a finger of tight froth that retained well on a clear pale gold body. No visible bubbles but sheets of lace.
S: Fresh oranges and sweet bread dough.
T: Resinous and bitter. Pith and zest out front with a hint of alcohol and baked bread rather than dough. Citrusy aftertaste.
M: Resin and a slight chewiness. Medium bodied finishing wet and sticky.
O: Unsure if it’s great or poor but definitely different and interesting. Overall though not what I generally look for in a lager.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Medieval Times branded lager glass acquired from the local Savers. Aroma is clean and pleasant. Appearance is pretty standard for a lager. Taste has a nice fruity hop bloom balanced out by the crisp, papery taste of a pils. Overall, this is pretty nice, especially for a lager, if somewhat unremarkable overall. Similar to a lot of the hoppy lager offerings from Jack’s Abby, but lacking in some of their nuance and kick. Still worth a look if this style interests you.

Bottle. Hazy golden body, big white head with decent retention. Sweet aroma of peaches and orange caramel, sugar, candies. Taste of pine, grapefruit zest, orange candies, a touch of herbs. Ok, not sure about the style though.

Bottles on clearance in Fl. Strong orange aroma. Light bitterness but lingers. Hoppy. Light colored, doesn’t look like much and to me, didn’t really stand out taste wise either.

LinusStick (3521) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Very tasty beer. Thought it was an IPA at first. Aroma was fiercely hoppy with grapefruit rind and a slight graininess. Pour was a nice hazy light gold with tons of rising bubbles and a one finger white head. Taste was all hops in this one. Strongly bitter with a lager backbone. Hops are lemon and grapefruity with a dry bitter finish. Good carbonation.
