"Sometime around midnight in a city nobody can agree on, the idea for Left Hand and Terrapin to brew a collaboration beer was born. Oxymoron is the third in the series of one-time releases between out two breweries. A combination of contradictions embodied in liquid form. Oxymoron is an American-style IPA brewed with three German malts, six German hops varieties, and a lager yeast strain. Obnoxious yet reserved elevated yet modest, its the embodiment of blending two brewing philosophies together in order to achieve singularity. Consider it an expression of cruel kindness".

Grassy/herby hop. Noble hop. Not pure Saaz. But very nice. It starts to finish sweet and then the hop goes bump. Incredibly delicious.

hopscotch (11018) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle Clear amber lager with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma reeks of way too many spicy, musky, resiny and peppery German hops. Theres also mild biscuit and medium-roast malt thrown into the aromatic mix, but overall theres just way too much lupulin here from a hop growing region that I dont particularly care for. Medium to full-bodied with kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is all about the hops. As previously mentioned, they arent my favorite varietals, but they certainly are intense. Even at room temperature, the sweetness is very low and my palate is bombarded by sharp, tannic, walnut skin bitterness. Finishes astringent, bitter and dry.
