On draft at Hamilton's
Appearance is a translucent light orange hue, moderate white foam dissipates mostly, huge lacing on the glass
Smell is clean and crisp biscuit malts, moderate grassy hops, some cotton candy sweetness
Taste is initially pale bread/biscuit malts soon followed by grassy and earthy bittering hops, hints of tea leaves, citrus, and pine, lager yeast, finishes thick and malts with slight alcohol burn
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, watery texture with oily resin residual, amped-up carbonation is detracting from the flavor
Drinkability is high, nice balance of malts and hops in a lager framework, carbonation is overly high, but this is very drinkable for a unique style

Poured into a becker a clear rich burnt orange infused golden with a great looking large fluffy white crown that settled slowly leaving alot of broken lace behind.Aromas were yeasty with overripe citrus fruits and a bit toasted bread,a hint of sweet booze as well.Flavors of somewhat sweet doughy bread with a big shot the overripe citrusy hops,again the yeast plays a big role.I really liked this hopped lager,it actually seems bigger than what it is.

Tap @ Hamilton's. This is not the first IPL I've had, but its definitely the best. Pours clear gold with a one-finger white head. Moderate lacing. Sweet, floral hop aroma. Lots of pine and lemongrass, less of the grapefruit/citrus. Sharp, crisp resin bite up front. Mellows a little into a grapefruit-lemon-orange peel sweetness. The lager back enhances the West Coast IPA feel, giving it a sweet finish. I could drink this all night its so smooth. Very well done.

Appearance - Pours crystal clear and golden yellow in color with a white, 2-finger head. Fair retention gives way to a broken layer of suds with a nice ring around the edge of the glass.
Smell - Predominant mango aroma, along with touches of orange and pine.
Taste - Follows the nose. Orange and mango dominate upfront, but there's a distinct pine resin undertone throughout. Malt bill is clean and adds sweetness, but without a truly defining flavor. Finish is a nice orange zest character.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with fair, tingly carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.
Overall - One of the better IPL's I've had to date. For the price I paid, it's well worth a few more trips "into the Fathom".
