COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weíre 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.

Pours pale from a bottle into a room temperature glass. Heads lasts a bit. Aroma: gentle hops pop out of the glass, some citrus, a hint of grassy malt. Flavor: lager but with much more character and hops; some citrus, grassy malts. Mouth feel: lightly prickly. Good.

Bottle into lager glass. Pours a lightly cloudy honey gold color with a thick head that dissipates quickly leaving behind little lace. Aroma is definitely IPA with notes of orange peel, spruce pine, and hints of cloves. Taste is a little bland but is definitely lager-esque with an acetic initial flavor finishing lightly bitter. Light-medium body, soft carbonation, watery feel with a light alcoholic finish. I love the idea of this cold brewed IPA and it is a great result.

On tap at Stagecoach. Gold and clear with a nice white head. Nice fresh aroma and flavor of citrus, tropical fruit and toasty malts. Bitter and lightly sweet.

Smells like an IPA but drinks like a lager. Aroma floral with some yeast/bready qualities maybe a little orange or other citrus lightly present. Appearance is clear golden yellow lacing present throughout with a nice creamy head that stays throughout. Taste is crisp with a slightly salty bitterness that is pine and roasted malts and pepper. Great balance and it finishes peppery but not bitter. Lager like finish with hops everywhere. This is almost a sessionable IPA/IPL from Widmerís rotator series. Its exceptional medium to light body with good carbonation and a long finish. Its what I expect from the series which has featured amazing others including OíRyely and Falconers IPAís. Its a perfect IPA choice for someone who normally doesnít like IPAís.

lerchland (1) - - NOV 18, 2013 does not count
Didnít find it at all hoppy. I thought it was kind of on the sweet and fruity side and didnít complement my meal as I hoped it would.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1590) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2013
From Asahiya, bottle 525 yen. Served in a snifter. A clear orange pour with a tropical fruit aroma, I am getting mango, passion fruit & kumquat. Delicious smell! The taste is well balanced, tropical fruits, solid malt caramel & a dash of bitterness.

ttoadee (609) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Clear yellow, quick white head. Nose is apricot and pine. More astringent than bitter. Middle is alcohol & lightly kilned grain. Finish is bitter from hops and alcohol. I found this beer somewhat unbalanced.

BobbyAnalog (320) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Chalky, vehemently dry, rife with an petulant mouthfeel thatís just stubbornly bad. These two styles get together to buck heads and rap knuckles against one another. Bad.
