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.'

Served on-tap in a 10 oz clear glass snifter at The Reservoir (Waterbury, VT).

A: Clear honey-golden with 1/2-finger cap of foamy, light beige head with good retention and a think collar of lace. (4)

S: Noble hops dominate with grassy, minty aromas combined with slightly sweet pilsner maltiness with a light grainy edge. Alcohol is well-masked. No yeast esters. (3.75)

T: Clean and crisp despite the high ABV, it drinks more like 6% than 8%. The minty, herbal nature of the hops carries through all the way from early to the finish with a clean lightly grainy and sweet pilsner maltiness that is bready. The flavor, while enjoyable, is not terribly complex. Bitterness is medium at most. (4)

M: The feel is amazing for this big of a beer -- still crisp and drinks lighter than its true heft. (4.25)

O: I liked this beer but wish it had more complexity -- it is a one-trick pony flavor-wise but it does that trick with noble hopping well.
