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.'

Pours a bright gold with a rather foamy head that leaves plenty of lacing.

Smells of grapefruit, and some apple. Standard hop fare here.

This beer bites back, citrus on the front, bitter finish. Not getting too much by way of complexities.

Medium body, crisp exit.

Not my kind of brew, but one of the better IPLs I've had.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very pale yellow orange. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Generic citrusy hops. Pilsner malt behind it. Doesn't smell like a whole lot.

Taste - Crisp citrus hop flavor. Aggressively bitter. Pilsner malt flavor. Grassy bitterness lingers in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Well carbonated. Very bitter.

Overall - The hop flavor isn't very distinct. The malt flavor is still interesting though.
