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.

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.

On tap.
Hazy short-lived head
Small hop aroma
Rough bitterness lingers with a bit of unpleasant citrus rind flavor.

"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 found the very opposite of this to be true.

A - Hazy orange/amber colour, one finger of slightly off-white head that dissipated pretty quickly with a little bit of lacing
S - Mild hops, orange peel/citrus, malt
T - Hops, citrus, grapefruit, malt, a little brassy(?)
M - Bright carbonation, leaves the mouth a tad dry
O - A good IPL, very drinkable but nothing to write home about

Appearance - This beer poured a very hazy Amber redish color with 2 fingers head which fade to a foamy film which covers the top.

Aroma - Pine hops, orange peel a slight grapefruit smell, a strong caramel malt backbone,

Taste - Piney hops, orange peel, some grapefruit a very strong Caramel backbone very similar to the smell, also have that lager crispness, almost a spring water flavor.

Feel - closer to light , light medium body, in between an AAJ and an IPA smooth and easy drinking for a more bitter beer.

Overall - I wasn't drinking craft so I can't say whether or not Molson has changed the recipe's that Creemore Springs came up with, As Lagers go this is one of the better I have Tried, Easy drinking with more than enough flavor I don't know what stopped me from trying it sooner.

Does not tie together for me. Overly harsh unbalanced (mineral?) bitterness. Nothing wrong with it aside from a sulfury aroma note, but I could be wrong there.
