Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rudzud on 09-07-2013

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.'

This beer is very pilsner like with the malts and the hop aromas, flavors, and bitterness are pleasant and abundant.

A fantastic IIPA, light body with active carbonation. Taste is very happy and fruity, smooth with a citrus finish.

I am beginning to really like this style. I received this on as an extra on trade. I have no idea if these fall off like IPA’s supposedly do, but it tasted pretty damn nice considering it is an elderly 4 months old!

Appearance: Light yellow and hazy, pours with a huge pillowy head. Very much like you would expect from a lager.

Aroma: Floral and tropical notes. Hops are present but not in your face either. Pleasant aroma.

Taste: Once again this brewery has hit a homerun with this beer. You get the nice tropical mango notes from the hops and some floral notes as well. But, the lager component smooths this one out, it has a bit of bite on the back end but it is full and juicy.

Overall: Well made beer totally enjoyable! I would seek this on out again for sure

Not my traditional beer style but glad I tried this one. Excellent, smooth, hoppy beer that is exceptionally balanced. You can drink this all day long.

Pours a pale yellow with a white soapy froth that leaves a sheet of lacing of the glass. The aroma is hoppy but also with gassy, bready lager notes. Herb, bathroom, and lemon scent.

The brew is bready and also quite bitter with an earthy, dry hop flavor. A one two punch of lager sweet and hop carnage, Bitter, piney, herbal, bready and smooth. No trace of 8% alcohol really in the taste,

Overall, this is a nice full bodied double IPL with ample hop flavor. Not the most complex, but great for what it is.
