If stoudts is in your area, you have to try their smooth hoperator. A hoppy dopplebock. All summit and Amarillo. Wonderful.

I have not attempted a lager yet as I don't have the temperature controlled environment yet. So, please don't slam my question here, as I have not researched the subject. But, what if you went through all of the normal lager steps, but let the temperature come back up a bit at the very end for a week of dry hopping, then bottled or kegged immediately after that and cold crashed? As I've said, I haven't researched it enough, so if it was a stupid suggestion, I apologize, just trying to throw out an idea.

Jack's Abbey out of Framingham Mass. They are redefining the world of lagers and they are all amazing. They do an IPL and now even a double IPL. They are amazing...along with almost all their beers. Did I mention they are amazing? Seriously, best brewery in mass.

Sam Adams has a new seasonal "Double Agent IPL" which is actually pretty tasty.

And some of the other "extreme beers" they have in those black bottles like the Spanish champagne I've gotten around here in the wooden case with 2 tulip glasses. Freiksne,or something like that. So many beers from commonly known companies I never get to see.
Also, union, if you ever see "Deus" at a store and want to spend 30 bucks, pick it up. Infinium is meh to me, but Deus is absolutely fantastic.

New Belgium's Shift is labeled as a Pale Lager, but has a really nice hop profile to it with 29 IBUs. Not quite in the IPA range, still a good hoppy lager.

Yeah, I'm a HopHead and just tried SA IPL and was pretty impressed with it!

Funny, that is exactly what I am brewing! I started this last weekend. Won't know how it test for a few months.
Started with an Irish Red Ale, over hopped, and a Lager yeast.

Will give more details after tasting.
