4.05/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

a beautiful clean light copper/golden yellow pour with 2 fingers of white bright head, nice retention and lots of lacing. aromas of piney hops, caramel, tropical fruits, bready. at first, this tastes just like an ipa.. nice piney hop flavor, grapefruit rind, citrusy.. the you get a decent amount of caramel/barley, and finishes dry with a bready flavor. a really nice beer overall, the lager yeast akes it more refreshing than an ipa, but i do miss the lingering bitterness of the style.
medium in body with high carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish.

3.84/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a translucent orange with a fluffy white head.

S: Lots of orange and mango, as well as peach and tangerine in the nose.

T: Tons of pine, nectary tangerine and mango.

M: Medium bodied and a bit flat.

O: I guess I prefer IPAs. If this were top fermented, I think it would have been an A- or an A. Overall, though, it was decent. I can kind of see why the style is growing in popularity, but Im not into it just yet.

4.18/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: golden pils like color but a little murky, beautiful head from a gentle pour that holds nicely and lasting. Laces out,

S: balanced scent of sweet honeydew and hops, very dry and clean on the nose. Very enjoyable here

T/M: very close to the nose and that's a real good thing! Almost pilsner like on the tongue and a dry and light hop finish that gives a hint of melon fruit. The mouthfeel is lush a full. Very nice beer, enjoyable even though its not my favorite type. Enough body to satisfy, but I'll still take 2 :)

Would buy again and serve to friends

4.45/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Golden yellow with an awesome sizable white head. Lacing as well!

S: Aroma is pilsener malts, hops definitely, and some honey.

T: Same as the nose: pilsener malts, big strong hardy hops, honey bread, clove, and some orange peel. The after taste is amazingly refreshing!

M: Light to medium. It's got an almost perfect mouth feel. This is my second IPL as well as the best one I've ever had.

O: Was expecting something boring, but this is an excellent beer and I will be buying it again.
