Pours a classic, light pilsner color, pretty modest/weak head. Smell is classic pilsner with a nice subtle shot of citrusy hops. Taste is similar. You can absolutely taste the hops and this would be an enjoyable twist on the classic pilsner on a nice, hot day. Nothing to write home about, but good. I'd drink it again.

3.75/5  rDev +13%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, golden copper color with orange highlights and a finger and a half of white-colored head that slowly dissolved away into a not-thin and not-thick lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very nice aromas of piney, citrusy hops and bready, biscuit toasted malt, as well as some caramel, black pepper, a touch of coriander and clover.

Taste: Wow, really nice beer. Lots of piney, floral, citrusy hops up front, followed immediately by some caramel-like sweetness and finished with a lot of bready, toasted malt and a touch of brown sugar-like sweetness. Tasty.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, creamy and slightly effervescent. With an ABV of 5.7%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Wow, what a really nice beer. I wasn’t sure what to expect, never having tasted an IPL, but this is really nice. There’s a good balance between the hops and the malt. Recommended.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Amber color with a thicker white head that lingered. Lots of carbonation. Medium lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops and citrus, maybe some pine notes in the background.

Mouthfeel/Taste: A little rought medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops with a subtle sweet citrus on the after taste.

Overall: Not bad. I would have this one again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Straw yellow colored with fine bubbles rising up to a white tightly bubbled head that recedes quickly. Aroma of creamed corn and cotton candy, floral notes. Flavors of honey malt, peppery spiciness, some burnt rubber offering sharp bitterness. Hops are subtle, somewhat floral and spicy. Mouthfeel is a bit slick, but finishes tingly. Overall an okay beer.

12 oz bottle served ina pint glass.
Look great in the glass with excellent clarity, plenty of visible carbonation and a large, creamy bone-colored head. The head is exceptionally durable.

Aroma: fruity (citrus) APA with a solid malt base. Approaches 4.
Flavor: followas aroma. Great balance. Mildly bitter.

Feel: excellent - lively but soft. Medium body. Smooth.

O: an exceptional version of this style.
