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.

Dont let this APL fool you, it tastes just like an IPA. Jacks Abby has found what they are good and perfected it to its greatest quality.

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,
