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.'

Poured from bottle into tulip. Golden color with huge froathy white head...looks so creamy and fluffy!
Sticky head on the glass...huuge hop aroma...
crisp grain, sweet hops, bitter hops, malty finish...dry finish with some residual sweetness for balance...such a well balanced beer its insane.
This has to be one of my favorite IPAs..well, IPLs. It blows most IPAs out of the water. Its just so crisp and drinkable that its a true pioneer of the style. Nearly perfect brew. Enjoy it.
