This is an intensely hoppy and strong lager that we refer to as a Double India Pale Lager. Over four pounds of hops per BBL of New Zealand hops (Kiwi Hops) were used in progressively larger hop additions throughout the brewing process. Four kettle hop additions, whole leaf hops in the hop back, and multiple dry hop additions infuse an intense floral and citrusy aroma. No kiwifruit or kiwi birds were used in the production of this beer.

Tap. Awesome hops! The flavor is nice, fresh and strong with citrus up front and floral accents. The bitterness is apparent mid taste but doesn’t leave a lingering astringency in your mouth. Cloudy yellow pour with medium head. Excellent all around.

16 ounce can. Hazy deep gold color. Large frothy white head. Nice clinging lace. Big dank hop aroma with citrus notes. Flavor upfront is intense complex hops. Resiny, dank and juicy. All this attention to hops is clearly evident. Notes of mint, lemon verbena, Thai basil, grapefruit and a late grab of toasted malt. Warming alcohol notes. Quite tasty, this one.

On tap at Hops Hill. Smells like a swimming pool. Really weird. Pours a golden amber. Malty, strong alcohol flavor. Good finish. Interesting. Tastes stronger than it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Canned 440ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him and Iznogud. Orange/golden coloured, small white head, citrusy hoppy nose. Moderate malty, heavy fresh citrusy fruity hoppy and well balanced bitterness. Notes of alcohol as well but well rounded. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Really really good brew.

Best IPL ever! No really, it was that good. And I’m a big fan of the Mass Rising, but this was better. All about the hops with mild to moderate bitterness. Will grab even more of this next year.

Enormous thanks MacBoost! Shared with ogivlado and Iznogud! Poured a hazy pale golden body, small white head. Superb, fresh aroma, dank, orange, onions, cat piss, just lovely! Nice, soft light body, just a vague touch of caramel, to support a nice, citric-herbal hoppiness, some onion too, lighter than expected, but superbly drinkable. Actually more complex than expected, getting more interestingly hoppy by the sip. Just great. Alcohol very, VERY well hidden. One of the best hoppy lagers ever, anywhere!

Pours gold with an offwhite head. Aroma is pineapple, earthy, grass and citrus. Medium bodied, alcohol well hidden, good carbonation. Nicely done pils as it is bitter with a touch of sweetness.
