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.

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.

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