Received: Widmer Hopside Down IPL

The “IPL” stands for “India Pale Lager” and this is the newest beer in Widmer‘s Rotator Series of IPAs—and they sent me two at the end of last week:

Oregon Beer

The idea behind Hopside Down is, of course, taking the Rotator Series which is normally an IPA (“ale”) and turning that “upside down” and brewing it as a lager instead. Plus of course lagers are bottom-fermenting so there’s that play as well.

Widmer makes good beer (which I’ve extolled the virtues of before) so I’m definitely interested in trying these out. Stay tuned.
