Notes

This brew won gold in the Sangre de Cristo Craft Brewers SMaSH Competition. (Single Malt and Single Hops) Very hop forward but the Citra kept it from going over the top.

Inspiration came from reading of a Hungarian brewery that came up with a "hoplager" as their answer to the American IPA. Not sure what their IBU's came in at but I know I exceeded it. Never planned on it winning and was striving for outlandish. I thought I hit my mark but everyone who's tried it, liked it. (I'll try more hops next time ;) )

If you choose to make this beer make sure you do a good diacetyl rest and give it plenty of time to lager. Mine came out crystal clean with no off flavors. (that's what saved it with the judges)
