This was poured for me at Jacks Abby, and I brought this growler home and poured a chimay goblet full of Hoponius Union.
I'd say this is in the Dortmunder Export style, but with the distinct hoppiness of an IPA. Unlike any in the Dortmund style due to its unusual amount of hoppiness.
Hoponius had a nice one finger of head, which was light and creamy-looking. Almost fluffy. Light golden color and small bubbles rising.
Super floral, grapefruity, zesty, and pine aromas. The amarillo hops are evident in the bouquet.
Hit hard by the crisp floral bitterness, again, very floral, sharp and bitter at first, followed by light sweetness. Mouthfeel, very soft and creamy. Carbonation is mild. So well balanced, the blend of hops creates a complex world of flavors that are not overwhelming, though the dominant flavor seems to come from the Amarillo hops.
Chewy pine resin with clean floral finish. Makes me want to drink another. A very fine beer.
Serving type: growler
