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.

Very good beer, will have again. Need to Visit the Brewery in Framingham and try a fresh one.

Thought it was good but there are many other beers I would likely get instead.

Jack Abbey is creating a great beer and for themselves, kudos!

Once I try it fresh at the brewery I may change my mind.
