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.'

A: Slightly opaque orange/amber color. I got a massive head but I think this was due to a not fully cleaned glass (long story). The bottle lists 100 IBUs and 8% ABV. The date, on the neck, is totally unreadable.

S: Grassy with some malts.

T: Grassy, spicy, slight citrus. Tangerine and apricot. The 100 IBUs is balanced enough to not be a punch in the face.

M: Clean and crisp with a dry hop finish.

O: This is a really enjoyable beer. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp. There are malt and grass notes that make the taste very nice. I was worried about the bitterness at 100 IBUs - but it was nicely balanced. Also the 8% ABV was hidden well.

On tap at the Worthy Burger. Deep straw color and attractive in the glass. A thin but attractive head and great, thick, and lasting lacing. A light scent of hops and citrus, nothing heavy or overwhelming. Feels light and drinkable, with well masked alcohol. A citrus pallet and bitter finish. An excellent IPL from JA.
