Dryish opinion

Big Drop Brewing’s Kodama Lager is an India Pale Lager - a Lager brewed using the same process as IPAs. This process, together with the hops used, produces a Lager that combines some of the tangy, citrus and orange hoppy tastes characteristic of some IPAs with the hints of honey and the light, crisp refreshing body that is more typical of a Lager. Kodama IPL is also slightly more overtly bitter than many Lagers, although is less bitter than most IPAs, and unlike Lagers its bitterness grows (pleasantly) in its aftertaste. Unusual, enjoyable and refreshing.
