India Pale Ales, as we all know, are highly hopped and fairly strong top-fermented beers borne of the era of British colonial domination of India. Well, we have taken this extremely popular craft beer style, brewing it to the specs of a moderately strong IPA (14.9 P, 5.6% ABV, 62 IBU of American Magnum, Centennial, Glacier & Cascade hops), and fermented it with a bottom-cropping lager yeast. The result is a smooth and round lager flavor with a snappy, almost prickly, hop bite.
