COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewing innovation is about asking "what if?". What if we gave an IPA a new identity and used some of our favorite West Coast hops, with their grapefruit, piney, & tropical fruit character, in a lager? The result is this boldly hoppy & and flavorful brew with the crisp smoothness of a lager. Cheers!

MALT VARIETIES Samuel Adams two-row pale malt blend and Munich malt
HOP VARIETIES Zeus, Simcoe, Citra, Ahtanum, Cascade, Centennial, and Nelson Sauvin hops

A delicious beer and a great concept. Aroma was decent. Grapefruit, pine and lager. Pour was a nice, clear and bubbly medium gold with a thin white film for a head. Taste was nice, crisp and refreshing. Started off very pilsener-like. Light grains balanced perfectly the citrus hops. The hops don’t overpower but make a great bitter presence. Nice carbonation. Will buy more of this in the summer if it’s still around.

Bottle. Pour is a nice clean orangish gold with a decent head that dies down almost immediately. Aromas are weak... A little grain dust and a mild hop presence is all I pick up. Flavor is more interesting, but pretty washed out. Caramel malt up front with a bland tropical fruit finish.

Drank from the bottle. A hoppy lager? Who woulda thunk it? Mild hoppiness and a little citrus; smooth finish. A lager that hopheads can enjoy.

A nice smooth lager with slight spice notes, reminiscent of an unfiltered whet with a meager hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with white head. Aroma is sweet with huge floral and citrus hop notes. Smells amazing. Taste is citrus and floral hops and kind of fruity.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is pungent pine, resin, and herbal hops. Very nice. Flavor is the same with the addition of some floral hops and lightly sweetened malt. Has a lively hoppy finish. Medium body. Well done Boston Brewing Co.

12 oz bottle, part of the "spring thaw" 12 pack. Pours a clear bright yellow with a 1/2" white head. With a beer this clean and bright, can spring be far off. Aroma is fruity hops with a touch of spice. Light fruitiness in the flavor. Some bready malt. Finishes dry and crisp. Thin palate. Everything about screams spring.

Pours golden with light white head. Aroma is pretty hoppy with lots of grapefruit and pine. Moderate bitter taste with a crisp easy finish. Definitely something new and also delicious. Quite smooth overall interesting mix

Bottle poured into tulip. Appearance is clear golden copper with a nice off-white head. Aroma is intense bitter citrus with pine hints. The taste is a bit heavier on the pine and grass with a rather bitter hops aftertaste. Slightly creamy feel to, carbonation seems fairly light. Not too bad.
