Brewing innovation is about asking "what if?". What if we gave an IPA a new identity and used some of our favorite West Coast hops, with their grapefruit, piney, & tropical fruit character, in a lager? The result is this boldly hoppy & and flavorful brew with the crisp smoothness of a lager. Cheers!

MALT VARIETIES Samuel Adams two-row pale malt blend and Munich malt
HOP VARIETIES Zeus, Simcoe, Citra, Ahtanum, Cascade, Centennial, and Nelson Sauvin hops

@ Remkes / Crescent Springs bottle date - 5/14 Clear deep amber with a good head that drops to 1/2", swirls of lace. Full-bodied caramel malt that adds medium bittering midway through the palate, both staying around through a lingering finish. Outstanding brew, great for sessions, plenty of flavor for 5% abv.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, best by July 2013 oops, poured into a glass. Pours light copper with off-white head. Aroma is nice fruity hop aroma, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel malt, fruity hops, crisp herbal hops, some pine, and malt backbone. This beer holds up well.

okay, okay, I’m sort of digging this one. The Double Agent is zest, citrus, pine, and considerably smooth and sweet. Whatever Sam calls this , it is pretty good.

from a 12 ounce. Nicely hopped. Decent malt build. Overall flavor is citrus and a really clean taste. Much better than I anticipated.

Strange combo of crisp lager style with hoppiness that didn't really work for me. Bottle was near end of freshness range so maybe a liitle past it's prime. A little too bitter without the hops flavor I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This seems to be the new cool thing in brewing now, a lager that is supposed to taste like an IPA. My question naturally is, "why not just have an IPA". Not liking it too much.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 Aroma up front is cutrus, pine, caramel, and sweet bread. Pours Crystal clear copper. flavor is very floral. Not much malt character in the taste. Thin-medium bodied. Very interesting. Slightly astringent.

Crisp and clean like a lager, yet very hop forward. The hops are a bit muddled- slight citrus and pine with a spice bite. I enjoy this newer style though (IPL).
