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

rosenbergh (10610) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2014
12 oz bottle. BB Jan/2015. (Martin's) Winchester, VA. Clear amber colour with a small white head. The aroma is full of hops... candy, citrus, pine, fruits and pine hops... what else is needed? Nothing. Absolutely great aroma. Delicious. Hard to believe it's a mass produced lager... The flavour is a bit more rounded. Candy and fruity hops, lots of sweetness and malt in the flavour. Too sweet. Otherwise I'm impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear orange gold with large frothy off white head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong pine and grapefruit. Thin mouthfeel with a strong citrus and light hop with nice crisp finish. Easy to drink, a very good premium lager.
