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 (12191) - 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.

rosenbergh (11793) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2014
12 oz bottle. BB Jan/2015. (Martin's) Winchester, VA. Clear amber colour with a small white head. The aroma is full of hops... candy, citrus, pine, fruits and pine hops... what else is needed? Nothing. Absolutely great aroma. Delicious. Hard to believe it's a mass produced lager... The flavour is a bit more rounded. Candy and fruity hops, lots of sweetness and malt in the flavour. Too sweet. Otherwise I'm impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

3.1
arminjewell (9720) - 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.

blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle.Clear amber gold with a big off white head. Clean malty base, with bitter piney and citric hops, followed by a bitter finish. Clean, light, hoppy, refreshing, and cheap (relatively). This beer at this price point is a very awesome thing.
