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.

JanLaursen (3052) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
Flaske. Klar gylden med et ok hvidt skum. Humlet næse, desværre i den i den græssede, let støvede stil. Der kompenseres for den manglende friskhed med en god fyldig næsten kikseagtig maltprofil. Bedre i munden end i næsen. Desværre endnu en ok, men middelmådig øl fra Widmer.

northropfrye (2195) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Definitely a good lager. Cloudy yellow body with short-lived white head. Pine aroma. Sweet grain and a touch of bitter hops in the taste. Achieves the crisp lager finish as described. Enjoyable.

Pours a pretty bright orange color with a lacing head. Aroma of dank hops, orange juice, and bready malt. Pretty sweet flavor. Clean finish.

India pale lagers tend to be OK at best and this is no exception. I think the extended batch aging necessary for a lager tends to make them taste a touch old from the get go. This is perfectly clear orange golden with a foamy white head and some splotches of lace. The nose is mostly pine with an undertone of honey pineapple tropical fruit. This is a bit on the sweet and heavy side for my tastes but the sweetness does at least bring out some orange notes. It finishes w/ a resinous, sticky bitterness with some earthy mineral overtones. This is really just not fresh or vibrant tasting, which is really what I typically want out of a hoppy style. It does have a nice balance though for those who like their IPAs on the sweet side.

12oz bottle pours out a crisp golden topped with a white head. Nose is biscuit malts herbal hops and some sweetness. Taste is as the nose with a nice mellow hop profile and a good balance of malts.
