Notes / Commercial Description:
Dream Machine, an India Pale Lager or IPL, is a melding of varied visions of an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager. Once poured, its light copper color delights the eyes and a citrusy hop aroma flows through the nose. Upon first sip, a smooth hop bitterness reveals itself – fresh, bold and slightly spicy – before subtle hints of mild maltiness appear. A big hop bite and a crisp, clean lager finish combine for a beautifully balanced beer. Take Dream Machine for a spin and let your reverie begin.

Undated bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a solid eggshell-white head. Initial impression is pine hops, nice malt backbone, touch of citrus. Medium mouthfeel; refreshing carbonation. Slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable. Kind of like a mellow IPA.

I'm New to the IPL scene, but as I'm not a huge IPA fan this was a pleasant surprise. I frankly love this beer - great combination and easy drink ability, not a lot of depth but very smooth while simultaneously getting suttle IPA notes.
