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

3fourths (9332) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2013
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 bottle. clear gold with soda water bubbles and a small white head. mellow and somewhat stale hop aroma on top of bare pale malt sweetness. lightly chalky and husky, lightly coarse carbonation, medium hop bitterness. simple, lean, a little "snappy" but lacks any trace of life or vibrancy. very dull and plain.

blipp (9175) - 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.

douglas88 (9064) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle from Guntown. A solid brew. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. A big nice nose of fruity hops. The flavor is oranges and more citrus, crisp, clean malts, very nice.

solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Not bad but not quite as easy drinking or good as ordinal session ipas. Pours hazy amber without much head or lacing. Light sour and bitter finish. Bottle from Chevy chase.

b3shine (8804) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle to pint. Looks good; a transparent orange with thin white lacing. Smells of hops and dough with a bit of pleasant skunkiness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel and a clean lager finish. A good lager.

drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2013
3/3/13. 12oz bottle from Proof in Tallahassee. Clear copper pour with a nice white head that fades and laces surprisingly well. Rich hop aroma with plenty of citrus and dank with some pine and caramel and doughy almost pilsner malts. Lighter flavor with caramel and doughy malts and a touch of citrus. Not bad.

Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2013
12oz bottle pours crystal clear deep gold with copper hues and supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts, citrus hop notes and a fairly lager yeasty esteriness. Pretty nice. The taste starts with citrus bitter tangerine hops and then moving into complimentary grainy malt notes and sweet lager yeast fruity esters. It comes together nicely and the sweet esters are kept in check and only add a small facet to the flavor experience rather than take it over.

what do i think? you’re nuts .. . deep gold .. great head and lacing .. nice solid dose of hops .. . quite clean for a SA product .. very impressive beer, why can’t all lagers have this solid a dose of hops! .. . . they’re abandoned! We think it’s a winner.
