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

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

AnG_BrgNor (759) - 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.

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.

Lage IPA hybrid and has a bit of both: the summer freshness of a lager on top of the conplexity of a well mad IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cítrica y floral en nariz. En boca equilibrada y ligeramente amarga. Sin ser brillante es muy bebible y correcta. BB 2018/04

Melko mieto, hieman kuin Hoegaarden. Sitruunainen ja kevyt. Kalan ja salaattien kaveri. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: floral hops, grass, hints of grapefruit. Looks pale yellow with decent frothy white head. Tastes unbalanced, somewhat soapy. Prevailing hoppy bitterness isn’t the kind of the most pleasant ones, seems to randomly appear every now and then. Hybrid result of a hybrid beer: should have combined best features of both styles, however, the result is unclear as well as the worthiness of this experiment.
