Had on draft at Lures on 4/14/14

A-Clear deep golden liquid with small to medium white head. Great lacing.

S-Aroma of citrus, tangerine, grapefruit, biscuit, mango and bread.

T-Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of grapefruit, citrus, mango and bread.

M-Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.

O-Overall an idea to have a clean version of IPA that makes you have more.

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.

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

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.
