16oz can purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $2.49. No freshness date. This seems to be a descendent of the Golden Hills 7 Seventy IPL that appeared on-tap in and around the Spokane area around the turn of the decade.

Poured a clear reddish orange-amber, with a big, creamy looking beige head that left lots of lace on the sides of a 20oz Sam Adams Boston Lager glass.

Softly piney and citrusy hops greet the nose. There’s also some peppery notes and a fairly strong malt backbone.

Mildly hoppy taste of pine, pepper and greapefruit.that becomes stronger at the fadeout. There’s also a distinct, caramelish and bready malt backbone. At the swallow, the hop flavor actually seems to kick in harder, leaving a hop resin impression on the tastebuds.

The mouthfeel is slightly oily. It finishes fairly cleanly, like one would expect from a lager, yet there’s a little bit of a hoppy aftertaste, though it’s of considerably lower amplitude than a typical IPA.

This is an interesting hybrid of styles. It’s not sufficiently hoppy to slake an avowed IPA thirst, but it might be a good beer for the hop-wary and the hop head to share. It is rather easy drinking, and if it had a lower abv could easily be a session beer.
