COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Lager / IPA hybrid is a revolution in refreshment and flavour. All the crisp clean notes of the finest lager but with the discrete bitter finish of a well-balanced IPA. It’s not confused about what it wants’ to be, it’s just the best of both worlds.
Hops: Savinjski Goldings, Citra, Magnum, Cascade, Equinox

pivoveskotsku (201) - - SEP 21, 2012
Light pale yellow lager colour, slightly grassy aroma and quite hoppy. Taste is very much like a grassy lager which has been hopped. The "hybrid" label is a tiny bit misleading as it’s essentially just a hoppy lager. That said, I think it is very tasty and I very much enjoyed it. Brilliant name, too!

suurjuust (3674) - ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear golden yellow beer, medium soapy white head. Nose is hops, biscuity malt, herbal and citric notes. Flavor is hops forward, citrus, something vegetal. Hops and grainy malt in the finish. Lingering grapefruit peel plus grainy sour notes. Somewhat fizzy mouthfeel. Easy drinkin', but not balanced.

rand (1770) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle 500 ml / Hyperboissons - Doubs (F). Sparkling blond lager with aromas of cereals, grapefruit and straw. The taste is fresh, light, hoppy trend citrus-grapefruit with a grassy, floral and fresh hop which doesn't stifl creamy malt. Dry and bitter amplified.

0,5l bottle, hybrid but maybe little bit more IPA than lager, refreshing and ok.

Like a standard citra based golden ale the lager malt gives it a freshness through some soapiness.

3.5
AnG_BrgNor (791) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2017
Can. Clear golden with white head. Aroma is weak of sweet malt and hops. Aroma is like a standard lager, a bit more fruity. Taste is fresh, crisp of malts, citrus and some bread. A nice bitter ending. A fine beer.

3.4
NallePalle (683) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2017
Can, 33 cl, ABV at label 4%. Interesting beer, refreshing. The fruits of an IPA are recognized, but overall it is not that bitter. Went well on a sunny evening with a delicious seafood soup with my wife.
