COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. I’m actually quite a fan of this emerging style... I was excited to try this one. Nose is decently hoppy with some grass elements coming off this one to me and just a little bit of that lager corn smell in there. Taste is much the same, with a hefty amount of bitterness from the hops and a hint of the lagery sweetness at the end.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Lake Placid Pub & Brewery pint glass From: Vons in Montecito (Santa Barbara), Calif. Price: $12.88 for a variety 12-pack (w/ Vons card) Purchased: July 4, 2013 Consumed: July 4, 2013 Misc.: Born on April 22, 2013 Poured a light caramel amber color with 4-5 fingers of frothy off-white head. Lots of foam. Very good thick foamy lacing along the sides. Good retention on the top. Smelled Cascade hops with lime, pine, lemon and some spices coming through. Also lemon juice, lemon zest, soap and floral notes. Not quite as good as it could be though. Tasted better than the smell, but still not great. Could taste the alcohol immediately, followed by floral hops, Cascade hops, lime, caramel, honey and soapy pine. Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter refreshing finish. A bit disappointed when comparing it to their other seasonal IPA’s. Good beer for the summer I suppose.

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a clear golden appearance with an off white head. Cat piss, onion, big garlic, very spicy, grapefruity aroma. I’m a bit conflicted with the aroma. Flavor is better with a smooth, dry malty, quite grapefruity, onion, spicy hoppy flavor. Pretty easy to drink.

jstraw (1939) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Hazy orange with good, creamy white head, decent lacing / Earthy, lightly skunky nose of citrus / Medium body, some sweetness but lots of bitterness with some astringency, no as much fruit as would be desirable / Muted, dull flavors of orange peel, pine, grapefruit / I don’t really see the point of this style. I’d rather have either a lager, or a pale, but not a hybrid.

This beer tastes like a Belgian wheat and an IPA mixed together. Overall it is a relatively balanced beer but nothing too special.

thegreenrooster (3341) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Pour is a hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is minimal. Some grainy malt and a slight hop. Flavor is a spicy hop to start then comes a bit of dull malts. Definitely a hoppy’er than usual lager but still kinda bland with nothing following up the spicy hop

Beaver (1363) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours clear gold with a small white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet starchy malts with some fruity hops.

The flavor is sweet vegetal malts with some harsh metallic bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, kind of a mess of sweetness and bitterness.

Aroma is pine, citrus, light fruit and malts. The flavor is grapefruit, fruit, citrus, mild hop resin notes, malts and a very dry/bitter finish. Great lager, am really enjoying this style.

czar (4769) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
tap at redhook brewpub, portsmouth - actually contracted there. clear bright yellow with a nice white head, good retention/lacing. passionfruit, flowers, orange creamsicle aroma. lager fruitiness, mostly herbal notes but citrus tends to make its way through and blend in well with these subtle lager fruity notes. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, almost bland herbal finish though, too bad. still.. a nice ipl.
