We’re turning things deliciously upside down with an aggressively hopped cold-fermented brew that brings together the clean crisp finish of a lager with the hoppy aroma and character of an IPA. PROST! To turning convention on its head.

355ml bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is leafy with citrus and caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a leafy and citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nice hop forward IPL that is balanced and tasty.

onceblind (7496) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Clear sun kissed orange/gold with a thin white cap. The aroma is quite bitter and grassy with a kiss of lager and orange zest. Crisp and lagerish flavor with plenty of German blonde grains and lager yeast but also with a nice citrusy bitterness. Bright and a little leafy and quite lagerish with a biscuity finish.

rondphoto (4103) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear medium orange amber color, white head that drops to a cover, strips of lace. Aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is caramel malt and tropical citrus fruit that adds light fizz on the swallow, and drifts from there to a finish that gradually grows more bitter. Decent, easy-drinking, balanced brew.

altonbrownd (5770) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Nice inviting amber body with medium head. Nose is nice and toasty, of hops aplenty and some spices. Taste is hops up front too and nice and sweet and floral. Sweet honey finish. Quite nicely done.

r464 (2293) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Very light, but full and crisp. Punchy with citrus zest and a good bit of hops, but not all that bitter. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Thanks iNBe. Nicely balanced I’ll say. Grassy herbal hops with biscuity malty sweetness. Serving: Bottle

Christpuncher (2833) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Smell is awful and the taste is worse. Very malty and bitter. You need to be a real man to choke this abortion down. Pours clipper with a cream head. Sink pour at best

trapped (2321) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 27, 2015
Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Hazy bright orange with small off-white foamy head, lemon peel aroma, low carbonation, bitter lemon zest taste, medium bitter finish with a great deal of aftertaste. Smooth body but strong lemon flavor.
