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.

Wow, there’s a *lot* of catty, grassy hop aroma coming off this one! Crystal clear medium yellow with a soapy white head. Those hops bite right in immediately on the tongue with more of the same as well as some pine resin and citrus pith. It actually seems like this is a really strong beer, but I think it’s the hops, not the alcohol (at only 6.7%). Even with this, there’s a really good balance here with some light biscuit malt sweetness. A bit of hay and yeast funkiness in the background (although again that might be the hops!). The bitterness lays down and wraps around the tongue like a delicious hop blanket. Bitey right through to the end, there’s a lingering earthiness and honeyed sweetness that makes you want to go back immediately for more. Excellent, tasty and surprising lager.

showsto (1) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014 does not count
Clear golden color. Light hop and malt aromas. Some citrus and grass smells. Medium carbonation. Not much of a front taste somewhat flat mouth feel. but the back taste is smooth with floral and citrus notes. Overall this is probably more of a pale ale but it’s a decent beer.

b3shine (4440) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2014
Draft to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent golden orange with off-white head. Smells solid; a fairly bitter hop profile with notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a bit of sweetness. Average on the palate. A enjoyable lager.

rougeau13 (1867) - Texas, USA - APR 8, 2014
Clear golden with a whitish head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma of citru, caramel, grain, and resin. Taste is thin ipa as expected; somewhat grainy and substantially bitter with mild sweetness. Light medium bodied and dry.

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2014
Aroma of orange and resin, some spice way in back. Clear orange like an IPA, but very still. Sweet malty flavor, hop/spice serves only as balance. Really more like your American pale style than anything too hoppy. Flush mellow body. Just alright.

Bottled from Grocery Outlet. Clear light golden in color. Fairly hopped nose. Somewhat citric in quality. Good hop character. Well balanced with the lager qualities. Tasty brew.
