COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been a dozen years since we’ve brewed a lager—and, true to form, we’re going big with Dissenter India Pale Lager, our argument in favor of the potential for complex lagers. Brewed with a wide variety of tropical, citrus-forward hops, Dissenter clocks in at 8.7% ABV and 70 IBUs. Our ales are fermented at warm temperatures, but this lager is fermented cold, using a different kind of yeast. The longer brewing process used for lagers gives Dissenter an exceptionally clean finish, allowing you to appreciate the clear beauty of the hops as you would a well thought out, eloquent dissenting opinion. We’ll let this one speak for itself.

På flarra. Jävlar vilken fräsch humlerik doft . Smakar fruktigt krämig känsla i munnen. Påminner om en Dipa jävlar i att. Fyllig IPL som slår ut alla andra jag testat. Rejäl fin mjuk efterbeska . Rejäl maktbas.. Ja jävlar god

Flaska. Buren från staterna. Underbart god IPL. Fina aromer där det ligger lite lagertoner som en skugga. Påminner mycket om dipor. Smaken bred något söt o maltig där humlen slår fint igenom. När jag känner efterbeskan så känns det att det finns inslag av lager.

burg326 (4558) - Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Clear golden yellow color from the bottle with aromas of hay, grass and bright citrus hops. Flavors were grain and hay with a light citrus bite and hops. Nice lager qualities with some hoppi ess abv hidden well.

katrinaez (535) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Very nice with some hops that bite. Rich hazy yellow. Goes very well with spicy food as it calms the palate from the spices. Bottle

nuplastikk (5033) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Tap at Coopers. Cool crisp noble hops. Sweetness. Coop and crisp vegetal hop tones. Excellent lager tones. Really authentic feel amped up with better ingredients. A pretty spot on example of the style. Great mouthfeel. Nails it, easy drinking for the ABV.

DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy and the table at Radio Maria. Bright orange, a bit hazy, lasting white head. Sweet citrus (tangerine), light pine, light spice, long bitter finish. Delicious.

sinfull (1055) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 26, 2015
Clear, golden color . Medium -sized , white head with good lacing. Fantastic aroma of pine , citrus , apricot and a bunch of other fruits . Taste is malty and unbelievable juicy. Without alcohol notes at all. Probably, the best imperial lager i've ever tried.

bartzluke (270) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 18, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bomber into stemmed tulip. Moderate head, nice lacing. Opaque, light orange, hazy. Lots of citrus up front. Nose is citrus and candy. Taste is citrus fruit. Fairly layered. I actually like this quite a bit, but somehow the aggregate ended up fairly low.
