Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Sammy on 12-27-2012

We have turned our brew house into a brewer’s playground with the introduction of our Craft Beer Exploration Series called Mad & Noisy Brewing, named after the two rivers that merge and flow through the village of Creemore. Hops & Bolts India Pale Lager is the first release in our ever changing series of imaginative, innovative, and delicious craft concoctions. A Czech twist on an English IPA it takes the best components of a lager and an ale and rivets them together to build a beer much greater than the sum of its parts.

A really nice combination of hops with a toasty sweet caramel finish. I really enjoy this beer.

Pours a dark amber with a light head around 1", stays for about 30sec. Not a whole lot of carbonation. First smell gives off a slight fruit and hoppy aroma. Tasting has a crisp beginning and a bit of that hoppy bitterness in the finish.

A little too strong on the malt and weak on the hops for my liking, unfortunately in this case it subdues the fruitiness/citrus ambiance that one expects from an India Pale beer and displaces it with a touch of sourness. A difficult beer to get ones palate around, 5.3% a touch on the light side for an India Pale beer.

My first Indian Pale Lager

So the look of it: golden colour with a finger of head. Bold colour also.

The smell of it: You have that Indian Pale Ale with a touch of lager on it.

The taste of it. Very powerful. A both combination of Indian Pale Ale and a larger. A bit too strong on the after taste I will say but a very easy drinking beer

So overall would I recommend ? Yes, if you like Indian Pale Ale and Lager this beer is for u !

Judged as an India Pale Ale, not so great. Judged as a Lager, not so bad. Just not a style I enjoy that much.
