COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís been a dozen years since weíve brewed a lageróand, true to form, weíre 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. Weíll let this one speak for itself.

Well a really nice IPL, hardly distinguishable from an IPA. Golden color, modest head, plenty of fragrance and a subtle moppy off note.

thegreenrooster (3304) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a eye opening citrusy hop. Just as good as any IPA. Flavor is again more of a melon rind hop with some cakey sweet malt. In a blind tasting one would probably consider this a IPA more often then not, itís that hoppy. Gotta keep reminding myself this is no chugging lager as there is no noticeable alcohol. Solid beer for those looking for more out of a lager.

GODiSSOUTHERN (382) - Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Has the distinctive founderís style of hoppiness. Citrusy, earthy, and a bit spicy. Has an interesting sharp clean finish unlike other beers of theirs.

ccex (961) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bomber pours a clear golden yellow with small white head and a little lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus hops, with some cloves and biscuits. Taste is bitter with some malty sweetness in the middle before a bitter, grassy and almost dank finish kicks in. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Iím surprised this is a lager. Itís a decent IIPA in my book. although a littlet pricey.

smroush (41) - Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Quite hoppy aroma. Citrus hops. A little spice, perhaps a slight touch of clove. Hint if hefeweizen. Color is a cloudy yellow-orange. Small light cream colored head. Taste: mostly a moderate amount of hop bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Finish is long with the hop bitterness combining with the carbonation is quite nice. Overall I liked this more than I was expecting. For a lager itís pretty complex. Really reminds me more of a pretty good IPA.

Pours hazy golden orange with white head. Smell is hops, tropical fruit and caramel malts. Taste is hops, pine, citrus and a crisp malt finish. Medium body, medium carb.

A good night is one in which I get to try 2 new releases from Founders. The mysterious label seems to have a story behind it. Dark gold pour with a crackling head. The humid aroma carries hints of cheese and lemons. Dissenterís flavor is very interesting and hard to pin down. There is a little Belgian golden or tripel taste, plus strong lager and pale ale notes. There is a fair amount of honey taste, and the hops are robust but not too intense. Another rock solid release from Founders.

tmoreau (2570) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Shared 25.4 oz. bottle, poured to snifters showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of bubbly, soft white head foam, and some dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was extremely dank & citrusy, with some grassiness & greenery. The taste started with a touch of malt sweetness, then exposed a quite lingering, earthy & rind-like bitterness. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, nice alcohol warmth, and agreeably crisp & clean finish. Any tropical notes seemed to escape me.

Bomber from New Pi. Very fresh hop aroma. Pale yellow pour, dense white head. Smooth body, lots of tropical fruit hop flavors. Dry finish. Itís very good--Iím not sure itís worth the price, but tasty.
