Really liked this blend of IPA and Lager to create the IPL. Liked better than then plain lager or IPA, worth a try for sure.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a lot frothy off white head that settles and laces fairly well.

S: Citrus and pine hops, maybe a touch of fruitiness, and a little light malt.

T: Lots of pine and citrus hops up front, some grapefruit and tangerine, with a nice light malt backbone. Tangerine and malt sweetness come out more as it warms.

M: On the lighter side of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Didn't really have high expectations for this one given the style and that this bottle is less than fresh, but I have to say I was quite pleasantly surprised.
