4.78/5 rDev +44.8%
Poured from bottle to pint
Rich gold color and moderate head.
Aroma is of pronounced hops, a touch on the Pacific-Northwest grapefruity side. Not overpowering but very promising.
A pronounced hop bite at first sip that disappears remarkably quickly. No bitterness lingers. Smooth, sweet maltiness in the finish cleans the palate and makes me want to keep sipping.
Overall great beer and glad it'll be year-round!

Dream Machine pours a perfectly clear, medium gold with a finger-and-a-half thick, fluffy white head. Lacing is top notch, and as I sit here typing this, the head is still a finger thick, over ten minutes after pouring it.
Healthy carbonation helps bring the aroma out. Amarillo and Sterling dry hops add a bright, citrusy aroma with a touch of spice on top of pale malts.
The body is more pronounced in the taste. A slight sweetness hits the tongue first, followed by the citrus hop notes. It finishes with a nice spicy hop finish and aftertaste. Overall, surprisingly smooth and well-balanced for a 50 IBU beer.
The mouthfeel is pretty good as well. It's a bit thin as the beer warms, but overall, a medium-light body with a healthy carbonation makes for a smooth, easy-going drink.
Overall, this is an impressive beer, well worth the wait from Magic Hat. It has a great hoppiness to it that hopheads will love, without being too much, as some IPA/IPLs can be.

I got this single 12oz brown bottle at the Jewel//Osco store in Glendale Heights, IL as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99, making this single bottle $1.67. No freshness date.
The beer poured a fairly clear golden/orange color with a big 3-finger rocky white head that lasted several minutes, but for some reason left very little lacing or I would have rated it higher in looks.
Big citrus hop aroma on top of a lager beer smell. It really smelled nice.
The first sip delivers some bitter citrus hop flavors - mostly lemon, orange peel, and grapefruit. Then some sweet malts kick in for balance, but then it returns to some really bitter citrus hop flavors at the finish.
Light bodied, but crisp with above avaerage carbonation.
This was a very unique and interesting pale lager, and I liked it a lot.
