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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle in to a Duvel tulip.

A- Absolutely clear golden body with 1.5" of fluffy white head that sticks around for a few minutes.

S- This smells like, well, a hoppy lager. Just what I expected.

T- The hop flavor is there but comes to an abrupt hault and finishes smooth and malty. I could probably drink this all day.

M- Medium body and medium amount of carbonation

O- Quite a good beer. A wonderful melding of styles.
