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".

Bomber from Ace in Boulder, CO. Pours clear amber/copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roast caramel. Hop? Med body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is pale malt and a heck of a lot of hop. Grassy/herby hop. Noble hop. Not pure Saaz. But very nice. It starts to finish sweet and then the hop goes bump. Incredibly delicious.
