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

deyholla (11505) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of pine hops with some sweet grains and a bit of crisp lager yeast. Flavor starts with crisp lager yeast and grains and has a bit of musty pine coming out in the finish.

shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle. Pine/grapefruit peel and orange malt aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Sweet orange malt and mildly bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. Hops more subdued in the flavor. Nice.

j12601 (11135) - 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.

DocLock (10659) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle from new spring sampler pack. Pours hazy dark straw colored with off-white head. Nose is pale malt, tropical fruit, peppery. Tastes crisp, pale malty with an assertive hop flavor and notes of grapefruit and tangerine. This one is very good.

BVery (10327) - 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.

DuffMan (10284) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Light amber clear with a thick white head. Pleasant citrus hop aroma. Hoppy palate, grapefruit and light pine, lighter malts but in good balance, finishing clean and bitter. Good.

marcus (10156) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 21, 2013

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Best by: July 2013. Clear orange color. Good thin off-white head, decent retention. Good lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry overall, but a good ample body, still. Nice bitter taste, very little sweetness. Bready lager aroma, but very satisfying crisp hop flavor. Nice grassy light floral and pine. Some citrus. Light spice. Good hop bouquet. Nice long hoppy aftertaste, with bready lagery malt mixed in there, too. Really good, satisfyin stuff. Smooth, easy drinking, and very tasty, and also very interesting at the same time.

arminjewell (9585) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with nice white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, some lemon, touch of some odd stale veggie and cardboard notes when cold, but as it warmed it turned into more spicy and old hops. Taste is a mix of slight spice, grain, biscuit, bread, hints of grass, touch of cardboard and old hops, finishing fairly bitter, slightly dry.

3.6
JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit citrusy and tropical. A bit of kiwi and some light orange and mango citrus. Juicy and tasty with a lingering bitterness. I like the hop profile they have going on here - clean and tasty. There’s a bit of malt sweetness in here as well. Pretty nice brew.
