Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a thin white head that dissipates to patches. Aroma of sweet biscuit malt, light piney and grassy hops. Flavor is biscuit malt, grassy hops with light piney and citrus elements. Finishes with grapefruit and citrus hop bitterness and citrus rind. Medium bodied. Exactly what is expected from a India pale lager, with a classic lager body with distinctive grassy hops with piney and light resinous notes. The hops are well balanced with the crackery malt. A little of the distinctive Boston Beer light butteriness in the finish.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle from a Hop Tour Sixer to a Pint glass.

A: Clear, Burnt Orange. One finger white head that diminishes after a short bit. 4.
S: Strong hop smell, one of strong orange peels, light berry, and other tropical fruits. Very nice. 4.5
T: Taste follows the nose, but the hop flavor is not as strong as it was in the smell. The most evident flavor is of orange and citrus flavor. Sweet, light bready malt balanced the slight bitterness of the hops. Finishes crisp with hardly any aftertaste. 4.25
M: Light to medium body, nice finish. 4.
O: Although this is a lager, It does laps around your standard BMC beers, boasting stronger malt flavor and lovely hop bitterness. The bitterness isn't overwhelming, so I think many people would enjoy this beer. I sure did!

An interesting mix of a mild IPA and a crisp light lager. Some citrus, balance between bready malt and light bitterness with a good size head.

A little different than a standard IPA and much more interesting than a good many lagers. This beer isn't great, but is worth a try. Went well with dinner.
