Notes / Commercial Description:
Tropical IPL. We gave our classic Hoponius Union a tropical fruit twist to create Hoponius on Holiday. This IPL combines cold lager fermentation with a West Coast IPA hop profile. A blend of classic American hops accentuates the tropical fruit flavors and lends a citrusy aroma. A refreshingly crisp finish complements the pleasant bitterness of the hops and leaves you wanting more.

Clear golden orange appearance with a slight chill haze, and a small white head. Good retention, and streaky lacing.
Awesome bright tropical smell; peach, guava, passion fruit, pink grapefruit, mango, pineapple, honey and toast.
The taste follows the nose--tart and juicy pink guava, pink grapefruit, passionfruit, mango, pineapple, papaya, and peach, with a lightly sweet honey and toasted malt. Clean finish.
Medium mouthfeel, well carbonated, smooth, crisp, clean, and slightly sticky.
Awesome tropical IPL! The title describes it perfectly.

Unlike regular Hoponius this one has more IPA like taste and doesn't have a metallic aftertaste.

16 oz. can dated 10/29/18 and poured into Aslin Teku glass.

L: 1F+ foamy white head with lots of lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is a nearly-clear golden.

S: Lots of tropical fruit and citrus - pineapple, passionfruit, orange, grapefruit. Lager yeast and bready malts.

T: More or less follows nose, especially with the nice, bready malts. Tropical taste dimmed a bit over two months, but not horribly so.

F: Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Construction and balance very good.

O: Very decent lager with a tropical twist.

Clear lager pour with bountiful head. Crisp taste of citrus with a smooth finish. Not your typical winter beer, that’s when I had it, but definitely a keeper. Great taste.

Poured from a tall boy can into a pint glass. Color’s a pale straw gold with just a tiny bit of haze and sparkle, with a nice slightly beige head. Smell is ordinary IPAish, not really giving away the flavor wallop to come. Taste is a super fruity tropical splash with a sticky slightly malty finish. Mouthfeel is dense, sugary, but smooth. Delicious, if a bit heavy. A really festive tropical IPA.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that left delicate lacing on the surface and a collar consisting of medium-sized bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of mangos and watermelon are present in the nose.
T: The taste has tropical flavors of mangos along with hints of orange citrus. A slight amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and a little clean with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has the type of aroma and flavor profile that you would expect from an IPA but has the cleanness in the mouthfeel that you would expect from a lager.

Serving type: can

Canned on 12/07/17.Pours into a becker clear rich golden with a large fluffy nearly two finger white head that settles ever so slowly into s frothy mass leaving two broken rings of lace behind in it's wake.Floral citric hops in the nose,slightly yeasty.A mellow feel even though it's quite highly carbonated,very nice.Tropical fruits like the label implies come thru on a hopped up palate,there is dryer crispness in the finish showing off that it's still a lager.Easy drinking it seems smaller than what it is,a good rendition of the style.
