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.

Pour is transparent amber with a lot of fluffy white head and some large bubbles. Nose is light, clean and fresh. Some grain, a touch doughy, strong hop punch, tropical fruits light, grassy and herbal. Taste is the same, well attenuated, clean grain notes, a touch doughy, with a strong hop punch. More tropical fruit, grapefruit, grassy hop behind, and light bitterness with a dry well carbonated finish and lighter body.

A - pours a rich golden color with a nice finger of dense caramel head, nice retention and lacing.

S - citrusy dank hop bitterness, nice bready malt backbone. Smells like sweet pot. phenomenal smell

T - citrusy semi-dry hops, bready caramel malts, super refreshing slightly dry aftertaste - simple but well done.

M - refreshing and not too light, decent carbonation. Nice drinker

O - best lager I've ever had by far. Balances fantastic flavor and mildness very well
