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.

12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear deep gold body supporting a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up smooth soft yet rich citrus hop extract enhanced grapefruit notes as well as malt sweetened orange peel. Well, behind those notes I get a sense of lager-y yeasty esters but I’m not sure I would notice them if I wasn’t expecting to smell them. The taste is similar with a pleasing clean citrus hop extract flavor that tugs onto a wedge of resiny citrus hop bitterness and those notes seem to go back and forth for a while. In the background is a light sense of the lager yeast presence as well as a faint malt backbone. This is pretty darn nice as well as hoppy.

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.

cheap (4271) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Dull hoppy aroma. Wew, first taste is a big kick in the palate and now I see its almost 7% wew. Chewing on older green grapefruit rinds. Over the top and too much for these girlie taste buds. Finish is like licking slick oily liquid soap. Terribly on style if this is an doubly impy pale ale. Clean clear taste of a lager or do you imperial pilz? Brutally on hoppy style something strong or imperial.

cbfobes (2596) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Poured from bottle, pours a clear dark gold with a bubbly white head, the aroma has a good amount of fruit and hops with a kick of grain as well, the flavor has a hop and citrus front end with a sweeter finish at the same time, hoppy sweet juice, huh.

12oz bottle pour, two finger white foam head. Light golden to amber color. Nice floral smell, very much caramel taste on the start with a crisp, slightly bitter finish.

hopdog (9270) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Pine, grass, and stale hops with some graininess.

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 (3672) - 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.
