Number 3 on the Hop Tour. Pours a rich copper amber with a short lasting frothy white head that gives way to...well, nothing. The beer does have some legs and leaves a little lacing but on the whole is quite thin. The aroma is pleasant with a large amount of citrusy hops and a nice malty backbone. The flavor follows the nose with a hop forward bitterness and a generous amount of citrus and grassy notes. This is an enjoyable pour; nothing outstanding but a great beer on a hot day or after a long shift. Definitely enjoyable but not of note.

ALOT of head. this beer poured with more head than beer at first. I'm not a fan AT ALL of IPAs so I thought I'd try an IPL, since I'm a lager fan. the aging didn't help at all, lol, I still don't like IPAs. I'm not sure YET, as to what makes it have that "IPA" flavor, I think it's the hops, but whatever it is, I don't like the hops flavor.
