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

Tasty and smooth brew. Malt flavors are slightly toasted and only mildly sweet. Hops provide decent flavors and a balanced bitterness. Easy drinking and sessionable.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
Poured a clear copper color with a thick soapy head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, floral, toast, and cereal. Taste is pine, grapefruit, floral, grass, caramel, and a nice bittersweet finish. Very good beer and wish it was available in a six-pack.

Clear Golden Color with moderate carbonation. Smell is very piney hop and citrus forward. Flavor is very piney hop heavy, along with strong citrus and yeast note; Aftertaste is quite resiny. Body is light along with the carbonation. Good beer overall

wildbeercat (354) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Aroma: Wow, this is actually pretty hoppy! Very citrusy; especially grapefruit. Appearance: Transparent light amber with a soapy white head. Taste: Not as hoppy as it smells, but still quite citrusy. Palate: Medium body, somewhat of a lingering finish. Overall: I was expecting this to be just a watered-down IPA, but it’s really...interesting. Has all the aroma of a strong IPA, the citrus and (somewhat of a) hop character of an IPA, but drinks like a lager. Really interesting beer. Worth a try!

mansquito (4650) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 6, 2013
Hop Devil Grill, NY tap ($7): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is passion fruit, pine, and some citrusy stuff. Taste is pretty much the same. The hops are more flavorful and fruity than they are bitter. The body is light for easy chugging. I think SA successfully combined the elements of lager with those of an IPA.

DrSilverworm (9467) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Best by: July 2013. Clear orange color. Good thin off-white head, decent retention. Good lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry overall, but a good ample body, still. Nice bitter taste, very little sweetness. Bready lager aroma, but very satisfying crisp hop flavor. Nice grassy light floral and pine. Some citrus. Light spice. Good hop bouquet. Nice long hoppy aftertaste, with bready lagery malt mixed in there, too. Really good, satisfyin stuff. Smooth, easy drinking, and very tasty, and also very interesting at the same time.
