Notes/Commercial Description:
In the spirit of our local history we are revolting against the status quo. We are writing our own story by fueling the fire surrounding extra hoppy beers. We infuse Mass Rising with increasing amounts of American hops during the kettle, hopbock and dry hopping processes. Together, we have taken a journey to redefine the term 'lager.'

Picked up a bottle of this at Julio's. This is their new year round DIPL, based off of their 2nd Anniversary Lager. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a wonderful crystal clear light golden hue with a good almost two finger white creamy head that fades to leave sticky side lacing and a creamy, creamy blanket. Very nice.

S - The nose just pops of a waterfall of hop varieties. If this holds true to 2nd Anniversary, and my nose is not lying, its lovely Citra, Apollo, Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Calypso working to make a very, very nice nasal assault. Crazy good exotic tropical fruits, pineapples, mangos, grapefruit, earthy slightly herbal aromas.

T - Taste is just spectacular. Super unique and delicious with TONS of tropical notes, mango, pineapple, dank hops, sticky bitter hops, grapefruit peel, oranges...the lager yeast is absolutely crushed by the hops here. As assertive and assaultive each and every hop variety is, each one can be picked out on different sips. I drink this, and wonder if I am simply rubbing my tongue with cones. The finish is strongly bitter, which is to be understood with this, however it is not a pallet wrecker. And if things could not get any more epic, as this warms...fresh peach nectar!

M - Mouthfeel is bitter, super drinkable, zero ABV noticeable. Nice bright carbonation.

O - Overall, this is one of the best beers to come out of Jack's Abby. While not as good as that first go around of Kiwi Rising, this is very close. Very well crafted and at $4.99 a 500mL it does not break the bank.
