12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- pours a hazy pale golden color with a small foamy white head that retains for a short time and settles into a thin film floating on top

S- grassy and piney hops, green vegetables, lettuce, spicy lager yeast, cracker malt

T- strong floral hop notes up front, followed by some green vegetables, spicy lager yeast, finishing with some citrus and piney hop notes, and a spicy linger

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish

O- an interesting combination, the balance and drinkability seemed a bit scattered, the cabbage/lettuce flavor just didn't do it for me

Bottle from Champane's Cellars. I was getting lettuce above all, a tad of other vegetable including cabbage. Still drinkable and lighter mouthfeel. More hops, or they just had an older bottle.

A - Pours a hazy gold with a two-finger foamy white head. The fades to a thin ring leaving lots of sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of piney hops, grapefruit peel, and tangerine.

T - The taste has a good amount of sweet malts upfront with tangerine, grapefruit, and mango. The piney hop really shine midpalate through the finish. The finish has a nice lingering bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a dry finish.

O - A fine wet hopped IPA. The balance of flavors make this a very enjoyable offering from Short's.

Pours a light copper color with a lasting ring of head and leaves light lacing.

Smells like hops. Lots of hops. Bright citrus and peppery/spiciness that follows in the taste for sure. You get the clean lager finish at the end but overall its a spicyish citrus hopped lager. Picked up a couple bottles from the local store here, glad I did as its a very interesting take on a IPL
