Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: TheBrewo on 05-15-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A super hopped American pale lager brewed exclusively with Zeus hops. The wet green dank aroma of the Zeus hops pour out of this beer with sweet hints of orange. Pleasant resiny hop essence dominate the flavor profile transitioning quickly to a bold bitterness that seems amplified due to the light clean lager finish

Poured from bottle into plain ol' pint glass. Color is pale, hazy yellow, and yields a finger of white fluffy head that's here and gone. Head settles to a centimeter cap that hangs about. Some lacing. Highly carbonated, with lots of teeny yeast floaties swirling about, some settling on the bottom. Extra vitamins for me, I guess. Aroma is bread and bright citrus, lemon/orange zest. Taste follows, yeasty goodness, lager fresh, with a hop bite on the end. Clean finish is nice.

L - It is a soft golden color. There is a slight haze to this beer. It is capped with three inches of rocky, off-white head that leaves some lacing.

S - The smell has citrus with what I perceive as a lime influence, contrary to the orange rind which I do not pick up.

T - The taste is just like the smell. I get citrus with a focus on lime. The finish is bitter with a lingering aftertaste.

M - Moderate

O - I must not have a sophisticated palate. All IPL's taste very similar to me. This one resonates as more bitter than previous IPL's. It's a pretty good beer. I have yet to dislike a beer of this style.
