Late last year, Bay Area brewing icon and legendary home brewer, Mike "Tasty" McDole passed on. This beer is a tribute to a legend, mentor, and friend. 21st Amendment graciously shared with the brewing community a recipe for their collaboration with Mike on a beer called "Tasty IPA". We were also inspired by Tasty's famous fast lager fermentation techniques. We used both as the inspiration for this beer - borrowing a bit from the Tasty IPA recipe and the idea to make an IPL in the spirit of a quick fermented lager. Using a new Kveik yeast to provide a lager-like ale.
