BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jack's Abby Brewing
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

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.

Sweet and tasty, it’s smooth and full of caramel, biscuit, grapefruit, graham cracker and toasted grains. It paired well with fish tacos and went down super easy. A fine session beer.

Not a fan of IPA's whatsoever, but as an IPL Hoponious Union hits the nail on the head in a big way. There is a hint of the hoppiness, but it does not have the bitterness of an IPA. I believe this is the best beer Jack's Abby has made to date.

Good lacing on the glass, somewhat pungent aroma that get's your attention. At 6.5% alcohol it is a bit deceiving in texture and feel. It's a beguiling beer with the usual hint of hops yet it is very palatable and not overpowering. Very drinkable beer in winter or summer.

Just a truly exceptional lager beer. Bright, strong taste. This one will never get old. It makes sense that it seems to be their flagship brew. Excellent.

Pours a slight hazed golden yellow. Taste and smell is fruity with citrus hops, sweet malts balance this out. A crisp mouth feel with just a touch of bittering hops. Its a lager that drinks like a pale ale.
