Draft on tap at The Beer Spot GTMW Eve Event at Brickhouse (Madison, WI). Pours a nice golden pour, gentle haze with frothy offwhite head. Dies to a filmy layer, laces ok and sticks around. Aromas are gentle florals, citrus, and dry malt elements. Straw, grass, and gentle citrus. Firm grapefruit really catches on. Initial is dry, citrusy, and mello. Clean malt bill meets firm American citrus hopping. Dry, citrus, and grapefruit. Some florals, bread. Middle is druy, citrusy, firm hop presence is flavorful without being overhwhelming in the bitterness category. Backend is dry, rind driven. Some nice resiny quality. Dry, grapefruit driven rind presence. Finish is dry, bitter, pleasant. Quite enjoyable. jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Light and crisp with flavors of pine, marshmallow, and pale malt. Has a grassy finish. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
bottle. Golden with one finger head. Definitely the best IPL I’ve had to date. Deliciously hoppy and aggressive. bwa5879 (963) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Pale gold/light orange clear pour with just a thin film of white suds. Subtle but juicy pine scent. Average mouthfeel, soft carbonation, bitter mouthfeel. Piney and floral hops with great pale burton-y malt. Very good and robust lager.

Tasted from a 12oz bottle (thanks again to Pablo). It poured golden yellow with a frothy white head. Citrus aroma with hints of pine. Nice hit of hops on the tongue. pablo951 (695) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Had it out of a glass, pours a clear beautiful orange hue with a creamy head and no lacing. The taste is surprising for a lager, big flavors of citrus and hops, and the aroma is is a subtle blend of sweet pines citrus. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus hops, light pine, and faint grass. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a soapy film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There’s a decent amount of soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy citrus. The finish moderate-heavy grapefruit and light pine. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, the flavor profile is that of an IPA. I’m really digging all the hoppy beers Shorts has been releasing lately. rage90969 (3) - - AUG 2, 2013 does not count
