IS there such a thing?

I have been kicking around the idea to try it....

and IPA fermented with Lager yeast.

I have the equipment to control temps.....But would it be worth the effort? Would a light clean hoppy lager be good?

I can see some pros and cons...

A regular lager would be a bit light for all those hops. But a red lager seems to me like it'd work better. Red Man IPA anyone? Red River IPA?

Heck yes it would be good....summit maibock is a clean hoppy lager.

I think if you used a maibock style grain bill and fermentation procedure but hopped it up to IPA levels using traditional maibock style hops I think it would be quite tasty.

it works pretty well, but the dry hop is the tricky part. dry hopping doesnt work as well at colder temperatures, but if you dry hop prior to lagering, you'll lose a bit of the nose.

I've had the Fathom IPL from Ballast Point and it was pretty nice.

Sounds almost like an imperial pilsner

Vicotory Prima Pils is also another great example of a smooth, hoppy pilsner with moderate gravity
