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

Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus, grain and fruit aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well worth having.

Floral hop nose, this is just too mishmashed a beer. No choesiveness whatsoever.

3.6
j12601 (12698) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden tinged amber with a large white head. Smells lovely and hoppy right away, but picks up a sweet grainy note up close, and that’s not all that bad. Medium bodied, a little bit of tartness. Grainy with a touch of sweet malt. Nice hop notes and a bit of bitterness on the finish. Pretty easy drinking and would have been quite good about six hours ago when I came in from doing three hours of yard work.

"I may have waited a little too long on this, but it IS before the date and still pleasantly hoppy and floral. Tropical fruits, citrus and a hint of pine. Light in body, so as not to be cloying. Solid brew. Best new one I’ve had from them in a while."
