I liked this beer and would buy it again.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Clear yellow color with decent initial head and good lacing. Citrus smell and taste. Nice hoppy bitterness. Good beer.

Light, not hoppy, very drinkable. Nothing distinguishing, yet fresh tasting. Enjoyed 12/23/19. Will drink this one again.

Initial impression from a can:

IPL. 5.8% ABV. Fun label art.

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE

***
04/13/19:

Floral notes. 2-row barley/pale malt. Vague citrus. Some hop oil & resin.

Drinks clean without yeast esters. Not a beer with an interesting hop profile, however. Worthwhile to try once, but not a standout IPL by any stretch.

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE

My first Wall Ball. Identified by the folks at Real Ale BC as an India Pale Lager (IPL) with "mad hops." I like the can. Sort of a throwback image. Qbert meets the Kool-Aid Man meets meth.

The beers pours a slightly hazy golden color with noticeable carbonation, but not much head or lace. The nose is nice, light and fruity. Faint apple, pear and vanilla notes with a citrus presence. The taste is surprising. Earthy and malty, but with a nice hoppiness. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, with a faint bitterness in the aftertaste.

I like this beer. It's everything I never knew I wanted out of an India Pale Lager. I can see myself revisiting this one quite a bit this summer. Cheers.

Musty and stale tasting. The most lager of an IPL I have tasted. Not bright or crisp. Maybe a bad can?
