On tap at Big Fatty's Grill, White River Junction, Vermont.
Despite being poured into a pint glass, I got what was going on, so here are my observations.
The appearance was a nice looking glossy to pulled back hazy yellow to dismal orange color. Just a cap of a little white foamy head sat atop and dissolved within seconds. Barely any lace.
The aroma had a fairly nice blend of grassy to semi-sweet yet slightly pulled back citrus. Good dose of bready malt, but not too lager-like, it's sweet smelling like a lager yet trying it's best to bring in the hops.
The flavor was moderately sweet through a blend of the hops and the malts and then a stifled bitterness of the hops clenching it's grip ever so slightly in the background. Slight bready to pulled back sweet and bitter hoppy aftertaste (citrusy).
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability. Hop bitterness wasn't distracting but there for enough harshness to tell me this was an India Pale Lager. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Good semi-hoppy finish.
Overall, as an India Pale Lager, I'd say this one works and I'd welcome this again.

12oz can into a pint glass. canned 8/29/18, so 2 months old.

Hazy straw yellow body. Good streams of carbonation. Decent size bright white head leaving good lacing.

Light, faintly lemon aroma.

Hay, grassy taste. Clean. Not much in the way of hoppiness though.

Medium on the mouth. carbonation feel a little more than expected. Ever so faitn bitter finish.

Overall, an inoffensive, quite refreshing beer. More of a lager taste than a hoppy wheat.

Aroma is wheat/malts, spices and citrus hops. The flavor is fruit, wheat/malts, slightly grainy, mild sweetness in the middle and a hoppy/medium bitter finish.

From the can, it pours a slightly hazy amber with a nice white head and leaves lacing as you enjoy it. Spicy scent in the nose. In the mouth, it is a bit of malt.
