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.

Looks and feels like an IPA, but lacks the appealing hop character. Unpleasant aftertaste.

Smell: orange peel, caramel, floral hops.
Taste: thin mouth feel, low carbonation.
Finish: bitter dry, mild pine note, astringent.
Seems unbalanced - bitter without much citrus.

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

Hazy dark gold color with moderate activity. Creamy beige 3 finger island head, lasting around 10 minutes, with good leggings. Flavors of biscuits, caramel, orange, pineapple, lemon, roasted grains, herbal spices. Sugary yet overwhelmed by bitterness. Oily, almost full body, with moderate carbonation. Strong strength finish, lingering astringent grassy and piney hops, with caramel and tropical fruits. Feels more like an IPA. The smell is faint and the taste is decent, but nothing amazing. Okay freshness, but a little dull. A little too strong for the lack of flavors. Overall the quality is pretty average for this craft.
