My new favorite as stated on the bottle "Fiercely Hopped" the use of four different varieties of hops gives it a great hoppy flavor. Carmel, citrus, and nice malt= my #1 choice! try it you'll love it!

Pours into a becker a clear rich copper/bronze with a fluffy full one finger white head atop that leaves two broken rings of lace as it settles.Wow great fresh hops aromas that really hit ya,grassy and herbal with some pineapple also being detected,just big and fresh,some sweet dough and booze is there as well.The hops hit up front on the palate with some grass and citrusy notes,the malt base is bigger in the flavors than aromas with some caramel and sweet dough being rather large,some more sweetness comes from sugary alcohol as well.Really liked this beer,just a great hop profile in the nose.

A- Copper in color and slightly hazy. A one finger head develops with a heavy pour but dissipates quickly. A light halo

S- Sweet mango, tropical fruit, bready malts, lemon, tangerine. Citrus in grass. Smells wonderful.

T- This is definitely a hop forward brew. A floral, piney hop presence hits the senses first. A earthy malt bill balances the flavors nicely. The middle sees more sweet malts, but the hops make an encore appearance in the end to my satisfaction. Pine, citrus, lemon, bread. Delicious.

M- A lager with balls. Hard to tell its a lager, and I like it. Drinkable as hell per the feel. Fantastic.

O- Well balanced and extremely drinkable. Clean crisp citrus flavors with a keen balancing malt backbone. I have never heard of this brewery before but I need to check them out a little more because this brew is something else. An IPA with a light feel. Freaking sweet!

Hoppy but not overly so. Has a malty sweetness that balances well with the hops.

This growler is courtesy of a coworker who picked it up early this week. The growler was labeled as "IPL", India Pale Lager. Very interesting. It pours a light bodied, bright bronze in color with a slight white lacing around the glass. The aromas are slightly hoppy, with a piney presence. It has the soft malt characteristics of a lager but the stickiness and pine resin of an IPA show through. It's interesting. It tastes of sticky, piny hops with a slight hoppy, yet this lager-esque bitterness. It's interesting. It drinks pretty light and is somewhat sessionable. It drinks fine and is an interesting hybrid. Overall it's a fine beer, yet a tweener and in between styles.
