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.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a small quickly dissipating white head. Hoppy head and bitter aftertaste but very boring and mild inbetween.

crisper than your average ipa but definitely hopped like one. slightly resinous, good balance and a nice fresh nose.

demitriustown (1118) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2015
12 oz bottle: Aroma has a really nice floral hop scent, juicy, pine, light resin, and little to no malt characteristics. Appearance is a clear golden with the slightest orange hue and a medium white head that diminishes slowly. Taste has got a nice punch of hops upfront with a nice smooth lager finish. Palate has got a medium carbonation and a clean aftertaste. Overall, I was really surprised with this one. I enjoyed it a lot. Cheers!

jmohno (1207) - Iowa, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Clearish gold, light gold, light head. Average carb. Aroma is minimal on hops with light fruit notes and mostly a minerally light toast/caramel character. Light floral maybe. Bottle is only a few months old and this is seasonal? I believe. Taste is of a toast malt buiscuit with some slight roast and light toffee/ caramel. Has some hop fruit in flavor with a light slickness. Bitter is kind of spicey like with grapefruit and minty pine. Hop flavor and bitter is there but aroma is lacking. Something a bit diety tasting in the nature of the bittering/hops in this though. Not too bad overall though.

jandd1983 (3050) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 22, 2015
It poured a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of pine, resin, a touch of fruity notes and some bread with malt notes. The taste was crisp, clean, bitter with mild citrus and pine notes. Nice.

tekstr1der (120) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Clear golden pour with minimal head—no lacing. Aroma of grass and biscuit. Flavor is semisweet, malty with a herbal bitterness. Very enjoyable up front, but a lingering dryness to the finish.

on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - Really good! A nice, hoppy, sweet IPA. Nice aroma and flavor. I’ll definitely look for this again.

I was looking forward to the return of this beer from Widmer. A unique cross of lager with the hop profile of an IPA. Beautiful golden color in the glass. Easy to drink and finishes with a little dryness. I don’t find the 6.7 ABV too overwhelming.
