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. Great beer. Loved the rich citrus hop taste that one finds in a IPAD but had that crisp refreshing finish of a lager. Great stuff.

Zeswaft (1739) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Slightly tropical citrus and pine hop aroma. Flavor is remarkably rich and hoppy. Tangy tropical hops. Well rounded flavor from start to finish. Must be the lagering. My only complaint is that it is a bit cloying and full bodied for a 5% offering. Tasty but not all that refreshing.

MetalNHopHead (1736) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JAN 1, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2015 A brave blending of styles that blurs the lines between lager and IPA. Its damn tasty, too. Double Agent has the malt character and alcohol content of a lager with the hoppy, fruity flavor of an IPA. This is a great idea with even better execution. This beer makes me wish that India Pale Lagers were more common. Ive gotten to enjoy a couple of these and hope to have even more in the near future.

Finhead (1703) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2013 Clear, deep gold with a white head. The malty aroma has some bread and cereal notes. The light body has an oily texture with lively carbonation. It has a mildly bitter taste with a dry finish.

Sampled on tap at a local bar. A nice crisp ale with a well blended hop palate. Quality but nothing special.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Crisp and clean like a lager, yet very hop forward. The hops are a bit muddled- slight citrus and pine with a spice bite. I enjoy this newer style though (IPL).

guzzler67 (1678) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Clear amber appearance with an average size, off white head and light lacing. Tropical fruit and lemon are prominent in the aroma. Resinous, piney hop characteristics more pronounced in the taste. Aftertaste has a earthy, citrus edge. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a medium length finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
lamas (1627) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle. Enjoy before: 07/13. A clear copper pour with a thick and fluffy antique white head that leaves rings of lacing behind. The subdued aroma features some caramel, a bready maltiness, hints of rye, pine, citrus rinds, and some grapefruits. Thin to medium-bodied. Caramel and some sizable bready qualities start things off taste-wise. Cereal grains and some spiciness in the middle. Zesty rinds and some bitter grapefruits at the end. Kinda stale. Wet cardboard qualities abound. This was much more enjoyable when it was fresh.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. Light amber with medium whit head. Caramel and hop aromas. Similar flavors with grain at the end.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours light orange with white head. Smells fruity. Tastes very fruity with a lagerish finish. Its a a nice transition beer for lager lovers to ale lovers, and vice versa. Good.
