I almost don't know why they call this a lager. It tastes exactly like an IPA.

Pours a nice yellow beer. Smell is average. Taste is exactly like an IPA. Bitter, dry, light, refreshing and easy to drink. I don't know why they bother with the lager label. In any case, this is a great beer. The Bruery is got the funk.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this one on draft at Bruery Pint night at Columbia Ale House. Outstanding beer, looked the part completely. Had the absolutely wonderful smell and the citrus taste that I love in IPAs without the bitter bang that can turn me off. Truly a great beer and one I hope to enjoy at some point in the future.
