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.

I really like this beer but for some reason it pairs well with nothing. So I drink it when drinking.

I think I had the wrong beer before I tasted this but it really came around. Color is correct, but a little clear. Smell wasn't great, even after I got through half of it.

This is a world class pale lager. It has an unbelievable floral aroma but not overpowering in any way. It tastes amazing,
