On cask at the Pizza Port Carlsbad Real Ale Fest 2011.
Poured orange with a golden haze, nice thin layer of foam receded slowly, for a cask pour.
Smelled of citrus, grapefruit, mango, and fresh hoppiness.
Amazing taste, a full flavored citrus hop-bomb but with measured bitterness.
A refreshing mouthfeel, crisp and light for a beer of this abv.
So drinkable and delicious. This is the top IPL and rivals some nice IPAs/IIPAs on my wish list.

2 liter growler from j47paco (thanks so much for the opportunity to try this!). Filled 2/23/14. Served in a Bruery snifter.
Pours a brilliant golden straw yellow with a fluffy two fingers of near white head. A hearty layer of froth persists and leaves large sheets of lace caked on the glass.
Crisp aromas of leafy orange citrus, piney hop resins and faint lemon with a mild cracker and dry yeast character.
Bright piney and cirtrus rind hops are the stars here. Pine, grapefruit rind, orange pulp, cracker, soft lemon, dry biscuit, pepper and mild yeast. Herbal and slightly grainy with no dicernable alcohol. Very easy to drink.
Fairly light body with healthy carbonation. Dry with a bitter finish of grapefruit skins, pine and crackery malt.
Further proof that lagers can be quite flavorful. Bitter and oily like an IPA with the refreshing, dry crispness of a pilsner. A hoppy departure from The Bruery's standard fare and good stuff in a very different way than what I typically drink by them.

Draft at Duckworths Ballantyne. Pretty clear gold pour, thin white layer. Sticks to the glass a bit.
Aroma, some pine and citrus zest. A little bready pilsener like malt.
Taste, light biscuit, heavier pine and citrus zest again. Bitters linger quite a while. A little more caramel and grain comes though as it warms, but very little.
On the light side body wise, nice smooth carbonation. Drinks very easily.
More of an ipa than a pilsener, probably why it is rated so high. Needs more malt and grain balance. Very straight forward.
