Very well made ipa. Cleanly made, medium hoppiness but not astringent. Well done.

Rating #2263 -2015.12.17 - Beer #17 in the 2015 P49/Central City Craft Crossing. Pours a clear golden with a bubbly white head, intricate lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium-high carbonation. Decent hoppy bite for an IPL, finishes rather reserved. simonblaine (593) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2016 2015 Central City Parallel 49 Advent Calendar. Pours light brown, small head. Aroma of lemon, pine, fruit. Taste is much the same. Mango, lemon, pine, straw. Good intro ipa for lagerheads DuffMan (10936) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle, craft beer advent calendar 2015. Slightly hazy medium gold, lasting white head. Big tropical fruit hop character, biscuit malt, long bitter finish.without being told this is lagered, it would pass for a decent IPA. sulawang (1217) - - JAN 3, 2016
Visual: Pours apple juice yellow with a very small dissipating head, thin hazy retention, a few slow singular streams here and there - barely anything.
Nose: apple juice from concentrate, light fart (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: very crisp, micro fizzy/almost creamy
Mid-palate: (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) hints of red apple, light skunk, non-aromatic malt
Finish: subtle and short hopped bitterness, hints of lemon, malt crisp finish.
Summary: Liking the crisp mouthfeel; it drinks like an upgraded lager with an extra hop dimension and a bit more depth and length. Went down with zero hassle.

Pours a clear light gold colour with a small white head. Aroma of malty lager.Taste like a lager but more hoppy and bitter, medium carbonation,has a crisp malty finish. It’s between a lager and a pale ale. Not a huge fan but worth a try. Reimer96 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
CC day 17! Imo the qualities of lager are present in this one... But not in a good way. Aroma has some citrus and grapefruit quality bit it’s really muted by the perfumy lager yeast. The flavor is smooth on the finish but really mutes the hop flavor and bitterness... 8 guess if an ipl was a style this likely would be it... But I have no use for layering beer ad ruining the lager characteristics with hops. Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2015
341 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow, firm lasting white foam. Citric lager malty aroma. Taste is juicy citrusy hop, semi-sweet leaner lager malt. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, moderately hopped. Clean fresh palate cleanser. Make this available in six packs please!

Hazy blond color. The aroma is fresh and tropical, I wish it were stronger. Dry mouthfeel, the malt profile is delicate and crispy, nice hopping level, with a good blend of hop resins and tropical/citrus fruits. Not as fresh as the first time I had it, though, but still performing better than the bottled version.

Hazy blond color with small head. Nice aroma of grassy and citrusy hops, and crackery malts. Dry mouthfeel, crisp malt flavor, citrusy hops, compared from the draught taste this time there is a bit more of chamomile; rather dry finish.
Fresh and nice.

Blond color, clean, with creamy head. Clean Lager, with some crisp malt in the background, not too dry for a nice chewy mouthfeel; and a very nice hopping with a well defined citrusy character, lemony in the aroma and front, a bit more of bitter oranges in the final.
Draft - Nice light citrus sweetness . Clear gold with a small white head. Light sweet citrus and a bit of syrupy finish.
