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.

Bottle poured fresh from brewey and cold into a glass. Golden with semi rushing bubbles a spotty off white legs. Smell strong citrus and floral accented by a bit if earthiness. Taste and feel impressive at first getting a pleasant grapefruit and line leading into a the lager profile which is a bit hard to explain but almost a toasted bread which probably is the yeast or spelt? Overall feel, depth are outstanding with a unique flavor profile. Welcome change from the regular apa/IPA
