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

Excellent beer! If only it wouldn’t have been kept under fluorescent lights at the store. Poured at a good temperature with a decent, foamy, frothy, thick, long lasting, cream-colored head and plenty of lace. Color is a clear orange amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is hop, malt, fruit, bit of skunk. Flavor is like nose, largely loses the skunk, has a great balance between bitter, tang, and sweet right up front and dance around each other in the mouth. Body is spot on; ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, has good length and is great drinking! Hope to get more of this.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear golden amber with a nice white head and some lacing, aroma has a little but if citrus and hops, more bread than anything, the flavor has a nice hop front end with a crisp finish, not bad at all

jcr (2205) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Hazy light amber body. Frothy, off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of leafy hops, toasted grain, grass, lemon peel, spice. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of pine, resin. Aftertaste of raw grain and fresh, leafy hops. Thought it could be cleaner, crisper.

This a well executed and gorgeous beer. Pours dark gold with towering, fluffy head. Aroma of hops, like an IPA. taste is hops with a malt backbone. This a really excellent beer.

Grabbed the Hop Project mix sixes from Duane Reed. Pours clear copper with one finger soapy white head that dissipates quickly. Great nose of grapefruit. Tastes of tropical fruit, grapefruit, bready, light tea leaves, and cloves. Very drying and smooth.
