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.

Disappointed by this one. Hoppy but weirdly bitter.

Not bad but I expected more. Dark golden color, light lacing. Apple juice up front, nice initial lemony hop snap. The aftertaste disappointed, leaving me with an unpleasant final impression. I really wanted to like this more.
