Colorado Native IPL is a clean-tasting, hoppy beer made with lager yeast (vs. ale yeast). We don’t believe the world needs another IPA. We do, however, believe there is room for a beer that is similar to an IPA, but is one that highlights the hop character as only a lager can do. An IPA done better, if you will. To get this clean, crisp character, we brewed an IPA-style beer, using lager yeast. The lager yeast is superior in this case because it doesn’t create all of the fruity esters and fusel alcohols that ale yeast creates, so it allows the delicate hop oils to shine through in the beer.
