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.'

Awesome beer. As advertised, a hoppy lager with a crisp refreshing finish.

Best beer I've ever had? no.. but the best lager I've ever had by far. Hence, a high rating, number one in that class.

This is a very good beer, with one exception...carbonation. The aroma was very good and the taste is stellar, my issue is the carbonation. To me this beer is slightly over carbonated. With all that said I would still buy this hoppy, golden , well balanced beer.

Bottom Line: The brews good.
