An IPA brewed with Lager Yeast.
Shmaltz Brewing Company unveils a stunning spectacle: the delicate balance of 8 hops gracefully thrust into the inner sanctum of 4 luscious malts astonishing in depth, dazzling in mouthfeel. A scintillating brewing performance.

Botled. Poured darkish orangey. Medium head. Some hops and other stuff. I couldn’t really tell a lot of difference cause the hops killled me. Not undrinkable.

nuplastikk (5793) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2008
500ml bomber bottle. Cloudy golden-tan color. 8 hop varieties in a lager? Interesting, but what the hell, this is 2008. The hops definitely dominate, but in a fairly enjoyable way. Pretty much what every sub-standard Eastern European strong lager could only dream of being. Strong in alcohol, relatively "classic" lager taste, but with a hop and malt bill that blows them out of the water. Good stuff.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Tasted 6/27/08. 22oz bomber. Filtered with a bright golden hue. Bubbled ring of white head. Mild peppery hop aroma. Medium bodied with a big effervescence. Bitter and crisp. Totally hoppy example.

DYCSoccer17 (3636) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2008
22 ounce bottle purchased from the Davis Food Co-Op. Sweet, sugary, candy-like aroma with some mild floral hoppiness as well as a bit of sweet orange citrus. Transparent golden body with a large, pillowy, white head. Nice lacing and good fortitude from the head. Starts a little sweet, before this one becomes very spicy, very herbal. Has some light doughiness in the body, before if it finishes minty with a significant, bitter, dry hoppiness. Grapefruity. A assault of hops.

bhensonb (14157) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bomber from the Coop in Davis. Orange tinged amber color with a minimal white head. Pale malt aroma rather dominated by mostly grassy hop. Lots of hop. Medium body with very mild carbonation. There is malt sugar, but there is indeed a lot of hop. It’s just hard to pin down any particular type. I’m guessing grassy, citrus and resin. Finish is neither sweet nor bitter. The sugars are tastable, but there is a lot of hop bitter. Maybe this is balanced? Certainly unusual.

Drake (11913) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle from Wine Warehouse. Amber color with a medium quickly disappearing head. Nice floral, pine hop aroma with sweetness to balance. Taste is a slightly metallic take on the same. Medium body. Not bad.

Pours clear golden with white head. Grassy aroma. Flavor is slightly bitter and malty with some alcohol and a metallic taste. Body is pretty full for a lager. Moderate carbonation. An OK lager.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Bottle... Clear golden ale with a big, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Spicy and peppery, metallic nose. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Medium to heavy metallic bitterness. Lengthy, bitter, nickel/steel finish. Appropriately named!
