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.

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12oz bottle (Courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 42°. Color is bright gold with good carbonation and rocky white head. Aroma is very mellow with some malt showing and a bit of hops. It has a lighter medium body giving a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is very light malt, citrus, spice and bitterness. After taste is clean and bitter. Overall its ok, smooth and clean but not much flavor.

patrick767 (3604) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2014
bottle - Pours yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head. It smells of citrus hops. The flavor has some caramel malt and a good citrus hop character. So it’s a lager? Okay, it tastes like a pretty good IPA.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
Lager meets IPA and the result is ... satisfying. Yellow-orange with a fine head. Grape dominates the aroma with further notes of metal and hay. Bitter with some alcohol noted in the distance. Nice.

Pailhead (5073) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate lager yeast, pine, light florals, sweet cereal notes, and a touch of straw. It pours a transparent golden-orange with two finger white head that quickly fades to a thick film. There is a good amount of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light honey and grainy sweetness. The finish has light-moderate pine, lighter citrus, grapefruit, and a touch of grass. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, not bad, but not really my thing.
