Growler, Tap and Bottle. Proof that lagers can stand with any IPA. This pours a golden color with a white head. Strong citrus and hop aroma, medium to light body. Starts with malt and hops really take over, good/great tasting beer.

Cask at Meadhall. The beer pours to a golden body with a very thin white head. The aroma and flavor is quite nice. An interesting blend of tropical fruit, citrus, and a scosch of onion. Vibrant hops. Super easy drinking carbonation, likely due to the cask.

Bouteille de 500 ml, merci beaucoup à David. Arômes de houblons américains (zest d’orange et résine). Très légères notes sulfureuses au nez. Robe dorée et limpide, effervescence moyenne et légère dentelle. En bouche, le houblon se montre plutôt aromatique, tirant surtout sur des notes d’agrumes et de résine. Le caractère de fermentation demeure présent, avec de légères notes sulfureuses. Belle texture souple en bouche et finale relativement douce. Très facile à boire.

On tap at the Horse Shoe in Hudson. Asked the bartender which beer was the hoppiest. She was probably right. And despite the intensity of aroma and flavor light and smooth in body.. My first beer on my Boston trip and among the best (another being from this same brewery.) bitter but balanced by malt richness.

Pours amber/gold with decent lacing in the proper glass.Very nice hop aroma(slight sulfur). Malt flavor lasts about 1.5 second and then the hops take over in a big way. Satisfying bittersweet finish. Overall awesome brew. I absolutely can not go more than two days without a cold glass of just about any beer these guys make. These guys are masters of hopped up lagers!

Amazing idea to make a super-hopped lager. So points for that. But really, this beats most session IPAs hands-down for flavor and relatively low ABV. Wonderful beer and a steal at $2.69 for 1pt. 9oz. bottle in western MA.

16.9oz bottle, thanks to Mike L., shared. Code on bottle seems to read "MFG 04.19.2" ? It’s a little cut off. Mostly hazy orange amber color. Thin white head, nice washes of lace. Nice piney citrusy kind of floral nose. Great bitter taste, a light zest. Just a light hint of that lager age. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, very easy drinking. Lightly creamy, almost. More dry finish. Awesome, crushable, intensely tasty india pale lager. Check it out.

1/2L bottle to taster (thanks DrSilvworm). Looks good; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells solid; doughy and hoppy with a pleasantly skunky lager scent. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a Nice citrus presence and good mouthfeel. An awesome lager!

500ml bottle in a lager glass. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of citrusy and floral hops, a decent amount of pale malts, and a little bread/dough. Flavor the same with a good amount of hoppiness and a good texture for a lager. A good, interesting beer.
