COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

ADesenberg (554) - Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle: pours a light copper color with a big fluffy off white head. Aromas of caramel, pine and resin. Flavor is very nice... resin and pine, but some sweet caramel too. It’s all mellow and super drinkable, though. Awesome stuff. Definitely pushes the innovation factor and gets a few extra points there. Such a simple concept, but done so very well.

cfrancis (2250) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
Pours clear gold with a small white top. Aroma is citrus and earthy hops with some cereal malts. Taste is a pleasant citrus hop flavouring with a strong malt backing. Well balanced, tastes just like a proper IPA.

Smells hoppy, citrusy. Nice copper/gold color, off-white head. Smoother than I was expecting. Bittersweet, piney, orange, some lemon. Very nice.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2013
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep golden bronze with a clingy-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a fresh herbal hoppy nose with notes of citrus and pine atop lightly toasted caramel malts. Starts with good fullness and appropriate carbonation along with lightly sweet pale malts and good resiny hop flavor and bitter balance. Smooth and very drinkable.

The Double Agent IPL pours a mostly cloudy orangish yellow with a thick off-white head that lasts forever leaving excellent lacing. The aroma is citrus, lemon, orange and pine. The flavor is lemon, pine and orange. Overall this is a very interesting brew as it is a mix of an IPA and a lager. I hope to see more of this brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
