COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Sometime around midnight in a city nobody can agree on, the idea for Left Hand and Terrapin to brew a collaboration beer was born. Oxymoron is the third in the series of one-time releases between out two breweries. A combination of contradictions embodied in liquid form. Oxymoron is an American-style IPA brewed with three German malts, six German hops varieties, and a lager yeast strain. Obnoxious yet reserved elevated yet modest, it’s the embodiment of blending two brewing philosophies together in order to achieve singularity. Consider it an expression of cruel kindness".

Once upon a time, the term IPL didn’t really exist, and this beer did. Grassy noble hop presence with the alpha acid bitterness of an American IPA. A tasty enough and certainly interesting collaboration. No Depth Charge, though.

Hard to believe it’s lager. Taste and aroma is like solid IPA. Hoppy aroma is incredible and fulfills the room after serving this beer in the glass.
