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.

Courtesy of rudzud via trade.

Poured into a tulip. Color is faint copper/light straw with a big, foamy head. Nice legs left in the glass. Aroma is piney hops with grass and earth, slightly astringent. flavor is subtle hops and light, bready malt; dry and refreshing.

I prefer a bit more hop assertiveness in my brew, but overall this is a nice, light drinker and a good beer.

My first IPA/lager? Weird style. Never even heard of it.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful golden orange/yellow color with a finger of white head.

Smell: Smells of citrusy hops, tropical fruits, and lager yeast.

Taste - Taste is amazing. Tropical fruits, citrus, and the aftertaste of a lager. So weird, yet so good.

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is perfect.

Overall: One of the best beers I've ever had.
