India Pale Ales, as we all know, are highly hopped and fairly strong top-fermented beers borne of the era of British colonial domination of India. Well, we have taken this extremely popular craft beer style, brewing it to the specs of a moderately strong IPA (14.9 P, 5.6% ABV, 62 IBU of American Magnum, Centennial, Glacier & Cascade hops), and fermented it with a bottom-cropping lager yeast. The result is a smooth and round lager flavor with a snappy, almost prickly, hop bite.

Draught at Bungalow. Slightly opaque, pale gold. Decent lacing. Slightly sweet citrus aroma, somme heavier hops behind it. Flavour starts with sweet orange, then gets hit with some great hop bitterness.

Draught at Q-Brick. Big clean citrus hop nose. Amber with a low, fine, head. Smooth, sweet, malty, yet very clean. Great hops, lots of citrus. Very nice and eminently drinkable.
