We don’t believe the world needs another IPA. We do, however believe there is room for a beer that is similar to an IPA, but is one that allows the hop characters to shine through as only a lager can do... "An IPA done better", if you will. To get this clean, crisp character, we brewed an "IPA style" beer, using lager yeast. The lager yeast is superior, in this case, because it doesn’t create all of the fruity esters and fusel alcohols that ale yeast create... so it allows the delicate hop oils to shine through in the beer. Our IPL takes longer to brew and is more expensive to make than an IPA, but once you try this IPL, we think you’ll agree........ It’s worth the extra time and expense.
