Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

I (tried) to enjoy this beer at the local hipster establishment in a hipster city,

The tap looked interesting and I thought I would give it a shot since I had never heard of an India Pale Lager.

A- The beer had no frothy head (maybe 1/32nd of an inch or less).
S -Somewhat fruity, faint traces of hops.
T - Very plain - not too bitter, a little alcoholy.
M - ? It was wet.
O - Not the tastiest. Since it is the only IPL I have ever tasted I had little to compare it to.

An India pale lager. That's a little too easy when it comes to doing something odd but OK, I do love hops. Beer was dark amber/orange and not particularly frothy. Aroma was innocuous enough, no detectable fruit, malt biscuits and floral notes. At first taste I got dank swamp vegetation rather than citrus, ample skunk and cat piss, some chalky dryness, pungent sourdough. There is not enough sweet malt to balance out the hops. I did appreciate the dry finish. There was a decent lager malt background but at least on this occasion the hops were hopping in all the wrong ways. Will revise review if I can track this down again and things improve.

From notes.

A - Cloudy golden pour with good carbonation. Two finger loose white head left good lace and a film of retention.

S - Orange, some citrus, sweet grain.

T - Orange, grapefruit, a little dusty. Mostly orange flavours coming out.

M - Decent enough bitterness, good carbonation, medium body.

O/D - A macro attempt at a hopped up lager. Couldn't drink a whole lot and stay interested in this one. Lacking hop complexity and seemingly afraid to push the boundary. All said, a good intro to 'craft' for the masses.
