Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mschofield on 08-07-2011

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.

Pours a clouded copper with a foamy white head that lasts nearly forever. Leaves clumps and globs of lacing behind. I'm almost convinced that if you lowered the beer level without disturbing the head it would stick behind completely intact.

Smells of citrus, grassy grapefruit.

Slight fruity taste, follows the nose here, slightly over hopped, not complex otherwise. Hint of mango. I dislike hoppy brews, but this is balanced well.

Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Alcohol is hidden very well.

For a hoppy brew I'm not too turned off by it.
