Southern California Craft beer is synonymous with big, hoppy beers and Ballast Point carried that flag with them in this Sierra collaboration. We've had a few India Pale Lagers in the past and quite honestly, up until now we never quite saw the point. Lagers are all about the subtle malt flavors revealed by super clean yeast. Once you blast away at a lager with IPA level hop charges that subtlety usually goes right out the window. Electric Ray is the exception: It's every bit the lager even as it hits you with big hop flavor and aroma.
