Style | ABV
American Pale Lager |  6.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This lager harmoniously combines lager yeast fermentation and west coast IPA hops. Our India style Pale Lager is like a traditional IPA but with a twist - it’s fermented cold and aged for extended periods. A blend of classic American hops creates a huge tropical fruit and citrusy hop aroma. A dry finish accentuates the pleasant bitterness and hop profile. Hoponius Union uses locally grown dehulled spelt from MA.

Big thanks to billab914 for this one.

A. Mostly clear honey gold with two fingers of some of the prettiest head I've ever seen in a beer. Settling down to a half finger over time, the head, lacing, and beading remain consistent and impossibly tight. Suds absolutely blanket the sides of the glass.

S. More excellence. Big tropical mango and tangerine notes, some honey sweetness, and then a healthy dose of garden herbs and tall grass.

T. Mango, pineapple, underripe strawberry, earth, pine, thyme, crackers, rose petals.

M. Really nice. It starts big and tropical but then finishes with that classic, earthy, dry, and floral lager finish.

O. This is a really good Pale Lager. Very hoppy but incredibly well-balanced and has a very classic pilsner finish, with spice and grain providing a very crisp, refreshing experience. I love this beer and would make it a staple in my fridge were it available in my part of the country.
