This year’s “First Brewed” is formulated as a hoppy India Pale Ale but fermented with a lager yeast, becoming an India Pale Lager. The grist bill combines floor-malted English Maris Otter and floor-malted Bohemian Pilsner malt in equal portions, and contains an additional dollop of German Munich malt. 65 IBUs of hops in the kettle (Millenium, Summit, GR Magnum, GR Cascade, Tettnanger) followed by a single round of dry-hopping in the conditioning tank with equal portions of all five hops leaves no doubt about the India Pale-nature of this brew. Fermentation with our house Lager yeast imparts a clean, round flavor characteristic of lager beers. Hatsujozo 2014 India Pale Lager is available exclusively on draught (no bottles).

Tap at Gar Eden. Golden orange colour, small white head. Aroma is yeasty, grainy, bit of grass, floury, wheat. Taste is similar, high on wheat and flour, light citrus, nice. Light bitterness.

KyotoLefty (9310) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 10, 2014
Tap at Marciero. Love hop nose, grassy, citrus, oranges, a bit tropical. Noble and more. Good solid bready malt. Lovely crisp flavor, tons of fruity hops, but mild bitterness. Great balance. Nice malty texture. Great.
