The best of both worlds! This brew combines the clean, crisp, dry drinkability of a lager with the flavor and aroma of North American hops typically found in IPAs. It also has a nice malt character for balance and color. On the fence? This beers for you!

chinchill (4271) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Pint served at the brewpub (from Oct. 2011 notes). . Clear, dark amber with a thin light tan head. Leaves some lacing. Light aroma with hops and malt in about equal proportion. Taste starts mainly malty, turns more hoppy, finishes with a mostly hoppy, and has a surprisingly strong and long lasting hop aftertaste. The N. American hops make this a bit earthy and more bitter than an average pale ale. Medium body with some crispness. Quite dry. A unique and pleasing new worth seeking out. Classified by brewer as an IPL.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Amber color with a white head. Aroma contains some caramel, pine, and graapefruit. Flavor is somewhat bitter with some caramel, orange, grapefruit and toffee. Although its a lager very similar to an east coast IPA. Overall a good session beer.

Cybercat (5123) - Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Comes out of the tap a clear, appetizing amber with a thin white head that may be an artifact of the pour. Malty aroma has a hoppy undertone and a fruity hint. Hoppy flavor has a malty undertone and floral, apple and pear hints. Firm-bodied, strongly tingly texture leaves a hoppy, fizzy and slightly woody finish. The best of both worlds indeed!
