-hopped with amarillo and citra. Draft at source served in shaker pint.

A: Bright orange coloring, frothy milky head of 0.5 inches, standard affair capping for bullfrog, with a silent carbonation factor. Head diminishes rather quickly but provides a decent sheet coating on the vessel.

S: The nose is bright and fresh of oranges, tropical fruit and dank pineapple and mangoes. Soft background of pine and sweet malts with a nice level of intensity for an ipl. sweet citrus in flashes.

T: The flavor was big on citrussy-grass hops. dried tropical notes follow with a pale malt backing. Big dry citrus, flowery and grassy and dried lemon notes from the amarillo give this a pretty big bang of dry hoppiness on the finish.

M: Lighter medium body, crisp lager like feel, with a smooth texture and dry finish.

O: Crisp drinker, big on grassy-citrus hops and tropical fruit give this a big bang for its buck. Big dryness and very good per style.

Picked up a growler after trying a taster at the frog.

Poured into a pint glass: color is translucent gold/copper, head is brighter white with fine bubbles that dissipate to ring and very light lacing.

Smell is a huge burst of lemon/citrus rind then some lighter citrus bitterness, malt is clean and not too noticeable.

Taste is very citrusy upfront, and surprisingly so - that citrus like presence is difficult to do and do well - and it is done well with an enticing aroma and flavor blend - though I think the lager qualities are hidden in the mix of this beer, but the flavor is still beer with citrus on the quality side.

Mouthfeel is a bit on the sharper side for lager, but understandable as this is identified as an IPL style.

Overall a good beer, funky mix of flavors, hard to review to style with the blending of citrus flavors but I'm glad we picked up a growler full.
