The body of this beer has the appearance of freshly polished brash. The white froth pops energetically and lingers.

Smells of pineapple and orange and not much else.

Tastes grainy with a fruity middle and a fair amount of spice and faint bitterness at the back. There's not a lot of India-anything going on here.

Somewhat chalky and crackery but mostly crisp with a medium mouth-feel.

I wouldn't go out of my way for this one, but then again I've kicked very few women out of bed for eating crackers too.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of grassy, slightly dank hops, mild biscuit malt. Flavor is citrus and grassy hops with the same light dankness as the aroma, light biscuit malt that is buried by the citrus flavors. Medium bodied. Interesting; hopped like an IPA but with a light lager body. The hops are strong enough that they overwhelm the light lager flavors. A pleasant, hoppy lager, but the hops were a bit unbalanced. Interesting experiment, but maybe this is why the ale style was used for IPAs.

Beautiful golden color in the Ciney snifter. Ample foam that froths up with every gulp. Mouthfeel is just what you'd want in a Lager.

Warm and brambly with a thin and fairly sharp taste. The overall flavor and hoppy aromatics are worth it, however. Piney, citrus aroma. Highly drinkable, very crisp, and just bitter enough with a resiny aftertaste.

One of the best actual Lagers I've had in a long time. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at 99 Bottles in Federal Way, Wash.

Light, clear and crisp. Nice lager base with a hoppiness that you can actually smell and taste.
