This India Pale Lager is brewed by the Boston Beer Company also known as Samuel Adams. It is available year-round now and has a 5% ABV.
I found this beer to pour a nice copper color that created a decent amount of head with retention, and lace. The aroma of this beer has a nice citrus hop tone to it as well as some tropical fruits, and piney hops to go with its sweet malty backbone. The taste of this beer starts off sweet, and slightly hoppy as the piney hops show up first with the malty backbone found in the aroma. There are also hints of tropical fruits as well to go with the great balance of this beer.
Overall this is a very good beer and I like how Samuel Adams went out on a limb to create this new style. I have never had anything like this before and I will be getting it again.
