Funny this just crossed my mind the other day when I was trying to figure out my next batches. I may want to give the IPL a try!

I don't know where you guys get this stuff,but I've absolutely never seen or heard of a single one. Especially the Sam Adam's we only get literally a few of them anywhere around here,& every place seems to get the exact same things. WTGDF????? Some of the other SA's look pretty good. Didn't even know about till now. This distributor needs a colossal ass kickn!

There's a world of difference between an IPA wort fermented with lager yeast (Lagunitas Zephyr) and a "light clean hoppy lager" made with noble hops and zero or minimal crystal malt (Coney Island Sword Swallower). The former is weird, the latter is sublime.

wouldn't the lagering process cause a loss of much of the hop aroma? I guess I see several cons(all the extra time, yeast, temp control of lagering) but I don't see the upside.

Brooklyn Lager has a really good hop character. Definitely not and IPA but it's a good example of a hoppy lager. Haven't had it in a while but that's how I remember it.

I just watched the 2 videos of SA's infinium. Holy cow,a champagne beer style? With help in the learning process of over 2 years to figure out how to make it from weinhestephan in Germany. After seeing it poured & described,it gives me new insights. It's bottle conditioned with a second yeast type as well. 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.

Ballast Point has had an IPL forever, called Fathom. It is fantastic. I have the grain bill:

Fathom IPL 7.5%
IBU 70
1.065
1.010

2 row 600
Flaked oats 50
Munich10 50
60L 50
Pilsner 550
Flaked barley 100

In lbs I think.

Cheers

You know,between the time I 1st posted in this thread till now,I have been shocked, angered, amazed,& humbled. Thanks for providing that link to Sam Adam's site. I'm feeling revitalized by this thread & that link! I haven't felt like this since we tasted my 1st brew together! I have to thank you all for this feeling,honestly. Wow! Makes me feel better about What I considered going out on a limb trying to reproduce a famous ale from Victorian times With modern extracts vs the original in AG. I only wanted to give the extract brewers something cool to try from history that has been lost on the modern world. I seem to have a knack for thinking outside the box to to reproduce modern takes on some old beers. Seeing them with different eyes than the math minded,or science minded types. Although there's nothing wrong with that. Maybe a new insight was needed? Or am I just jerking off? (lolz,preacher in Blazing Saddles)...

I 1wouldn't call that an "IPL." The label calls it "Imperial American Bock." I guess I'd agree with them or just say it is a Barleywine. ....but anyway, it is DAMN sure a great beer, i don't care what you call it! I wanna clone this one

Human Blockhead is really fantastic
