Alright, I'm late to the party here, but let's get this right: This is not an IPA. Period.
Clear deep copper and bronze coloured glow with a thinnish, one to two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, light malt, some caramelised sugars and a dose of grain. Medium-bodied; Assertive biscuity and grainy flavours at first with a noticeable bite of malt and alcohol at first with some assertive pine and malt notes with bitterness and a dose of flowers and a touch of sweetness on the tail end, but some lager yeast is definitely noticeable and ends with a fairly simplistic and pungent malt kick. Aftertaste is strong with a big kick of biscuits and grain with a purely lager flavour along with the yeast and not much of a hoppy/ale side of things, just the lager and pungencies. Overall, a decent beer at best that shows some biscuits, grain, alcohol and astringent flavours with not much of a pleasant side, aside from the 'label', which is obviously why this beer has such a high rating! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from King Richard's Wine & Spirits in Michigan City, Indiana on 09-September-2015 for US$8,99 sampled at home in Washington from my Oldest Daughter's 5th birthday, who I was there with when I bought this beer; Sampled At home in Washington on 15-October-2017.

Bottle tasted at a hotel share in Athens, OH. Kind of hazy gold orange color. Pours with a bigger white head in my taster glass. Leaves good lace. Nice big floral citrusy hop, nice peppery character. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Mild dry finish. Very nice and smooth. Mild to moderate sweet taste, mild to moderate bitter, great balance to the taste. Good hop character, without being too hoppy or too bitter, for a kolsch. Yeah, this works great. A touch too peppery maybe, but aroma-hop does its job. alexsdad06 (11392) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2015

22 ounce bottle, bottled on 02/18/2015. Served in a stange/altbier glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a couple inch frothy white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like grassy hops, bready and sweet malt, and some lemon. For the most part I think the taste is just like the aroma, but with the addition of some floralness and a bit of honey. Nice amount of bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a little coating and crisp with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was an enjoyable brew, glad I got to try this one! $9.49 a bomber. jcr (2806) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2015
