12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 5/8/2017. Pours crystal clear medium golden/yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, biscuit, light honey/toast, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, biscuit, light honey/toast, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus peel/grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, biscuit, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Very clean and lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate dryness from lingering bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.3%. Overall this is an outstanding IPL! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. Very juicy, dank, and vibrant on hops; nice malt backbone with no residual sweetness. Never overly aggressive on bitterness. A highly enjoyable offering.

Bottle dated 5/8/17. Pretty fresh here.
Pours a medium orange and copper color with minimal head. Tiny amounts of lace on my glass. Explosion of dankness, some grapefruit and floral qualities on the nose.
Taste is very bitter (good!), hints of tropical fruits, florals. Mouthfeel is spot on to what I expect from a lager. Crisp, clean finish and drinkable.
It's a winner in my book! Easy drinking, flavorful and a solid value.
