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

Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours crystal clear, rich gold, effervescent, with a strong, frothy off-white head. Nose has tangerine, melon, pine needles. Light sweet flavor with decent piney hop character, along with moderately dry pale malts, melon, grapefruit, mildly pithy citrus. Light bodied with average carbonation. Reasonably well balanced to finish, some oily hops, dry pine, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon rind. Not bad at all.

Hazy light amber. Aroma is a bit earthy, stale. Taste is like the lager but with more hops and stale. Dull malts are kind of chewy and the alcohol muscles in at the end...high end krepkoe.
