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.

3.8/5  rDev -10.8%

Very heavy on herbal, grassy hops, and less on citrus and pine. Also a touch of mineral dryness at the
end. Not my favorite, but not bad.

Pours a slightly hazy burnt straw color with a 1 finger white head. Low carb and nice lacing on the edges.

FIrst smell is lemon, a hint of grass, a little subdued but still pleasant.

Lemon is main flavor. It's pleasantly hoppy but not a blast in the face. A touch of grass on the finish.

The finish is spot on. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. A little puckering lemon on the sides of the tongue though which I could do without.

Very enjoyable and easily crushed. I'm a fan and believer in Jack's Abby.
