Pours a copper with a small head. Mild to low carbonation. Smells biscuity, not much hop presence in the nose. Very smooth and crisp going down. I don't much care for lagers, but I am starting to open up to these IPLs.

Appearance - Great looking beer. Dark gold with a nice foam head that laced the glass.

Smell - My nose was overwhelmed with the hoppy and piney smell

Taste - Nice hoppy taste without an over powering bitter taste. Slight hint of citrus flavors with a touch of pine.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with descent carbonation.

Overall - I am not huge into hoppy beers but this one is actually good. Has an actual nice hoppy taste without being extremely bitter.

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.
