Zeus Hopped India Dark Lager – Mission Springs Brewing

From Mission BC’s Mission Springs Brewing comes their “Zeus Hopped India Dark Lager” a beer that the brewery calls a mix between a Cascadian Dark Lager and a Muncih Style Dark Lager.  The beer pours a very dark brown colour with a brown head.  The aroma consists of big roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and maybe a hint of hops.  The flavour is of burnt coffee, huge roasted malts, smokey, earthiness, a hint of chocolate, huge bitterness and a very dry finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 75.  This beer has lots going on and challenges your taste buds.  This beer may not be for everyone but if you like a big roasty backbone with a generous hops bitterness then this is the beer for you (just like it was for me).

Commercial Description:  Brewed with hops aptly named for the ruler of all gods, it’s no wonder this dark lager hits your palate like a lightning bolt of flavour. Born out of a love for artisanal handcrafted beers, here is a beer that defies style, crosses multiple genres, and demands no guidelines.
