look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a 1" fluffy white head which recedes quickly leaving moderate lacing. Color is clear light gold. Abundant streaming carbonation.
Aroma: hop oil dominates the aroma but there is some yeasty aroma and bread dough along with some fruity aroma.
Mouthfeel: mostly light and watery with an oily stickiness and a dry finish.
Flavor: bitter citrus hops combine with sweet barley malt and some raisin/plum flavor.
Overall: an interesting hybrid beer that truly tastes like you combined a lager with an IPA.

As decent beer. Pale, straw color in the glass. Crisp, dry, and with noticeable carbonation. Some fruit notes, noticeably lemon, and pine. A hint of wheat, and a long, dry finish. Nothing too bold, or overly original here, but a drinkable IPL. Worth a try at $9 for the six.
