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.'

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Look: Faded lemon color. White pillowy head. Nice looking bottle.
Smell: Smells like a Lowenbrau.
Taste: This has a Germanic taste combined with light hops. Light and somewhat refreshing. A hoppy Lowenbrau.
Feel: Excellent. Crisp. Dense carbonation. Light to medium body.
Overall: An interesting tasting beer. For me, this tastes like a nice session beer with a high ABV. I would like more. I like it a lot.
