Brewed like an India Pale but fermented with lager yeast! This beer blends American hops citrus burst with lager crispness. A unique hybrid for the hopheads out there.

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus and pine hops with pale malts. The taste is herbal hops, a bit of a pine note also, with pale malts. Medium bodied.

On tap at Rustico Ballston. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head and some spotty lacing. The nose has a bit of herbal and floral quality plus some citrus rind in the background. Flavor has a bigger hop kick with nice bitterness along with herbs and citrus character. Body is light with crisp carbonation and a moderately-bitter finish. Really nicely done.
