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.

DialSquare (2683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Had a couple of these on tap at the Portland Timbers game and like better than my original rating (it was likely fresh - so makes sense. Bumped a few points. 4/27/13: 12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Yellow pour wit a thin white head and good retention. Aroma is muted citrus, floral hops. Tastes are caramel, bread and grass. Not a lot going on here.
