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

12 oz. bottle. It pours a nice crystal clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma on first impression has some dense base pilsner maltiness with a good balance of American citrusy hops. Typical clean, crisp lager yeast esters. Slightly doughy. The flavor is hoppy up front with some grapefruit and light florals followed by some bread and honey sweetness and a crisp lager like finish. A bit full bodied, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Really drinkable and a pretty good brew. Slightly on the sweet side like most SA brews.

Bottle. Looks like a pale ale, coppery light orange but with a tick creamy light beige head. Nose is balance of grain/sweetness and sweet grapefruit and orange peel. Resiny, but not overpowering. Bitter and crisp finish. Overall, light and refreshing.

Frozer (241) - Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Poured into a pint glass from a bottle. Two fingers of off white head which leaves nice lacing. A bouquet of citrusy hops fills the nose. Taste is pleasantly bitter. An excellent easy to drink ipl!

Great hoppy aroma but something is amiss in the taste. Not liking the finish. Tasted at the A6P. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samuel Adams Double Agent IPL has a very thick, off-white head, a mostly clear, orange-golden appearance, streaming bubbles, and a lot of thick lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is sharp- strong, citrusy hop oil and some sweet bread. Taste is of sweet bread, strong hop oil, and a bit of citrus juice. It is pleasantly bitter. The mouthfeel is medium, and Samuel Adams Double Agent IPL finishes crisp, refreshing, dry, and drinkable. Another winner from Boston Beer Company, this one scores high marks. RJT

Bottle; poured a clear orange type color with a medium frofthy white to off white head. Aroma of pine, caramel, and earth; some citrus. Flavor had a more bready presence. Lager like backbone, gives way to a piney/earthy hop taste that finishes rather muted and subdued. If this is a pale lager, obviously a good one.

BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Clear light orange pour with a big foamy white head. Citrus and floral nose with a bit of lager yeast. Taste brings some pine into the mix - easy drinking, flavorful, and a crisp clean finish. Really well done.

Pours a clear copper color with rings of lace throughout. Aroma is pine, lager yeast. Lager taste with a finish of piney hops on the finish. Interesting beer.

boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from Mari’s. I was nervous about this one but it sure didn’t disappoint. Pours clear copper with a small off white head and some carbonation. The aroma is pretty fragrant with some big pine, floral notes, and then some of that bready lager. The taste has a nice hop bite followed by some citrus balance.. with a dry finish. This guy is pretty wild and the best lager i’ve ever had.. cool concept.

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with long lasting, foamy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of orange, citrusy hops and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, bready and caramel malt some cotton candy fill the moth. Finish is long IPA like. There is some mismatch of flavors but, on the whole, it is good brew.
