BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American 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.

They're best lager yet. Yet, still just another lager in a long list of lagers.

Well I should have expected the super bitter hoppiness, but it seemed to far for me

Kind of an odd combination but it works. Smooth and malty like a lager with the citrus and hops of an ipa.

Had this on tap at Reservoir in Waterbury. From notes.

A - Golden, bright pour. One finger of white head on top with minimal spotty lace and no retention.

S - Grass, hops, honey.

T - Nice hops, grassy, some light spice, honey.

M - Good carbonation, light to medium body, not enough bitterness.

O/D - OK. A decent craft lager, but way less hops than I was expecting. Wouldn't revisit it, but a nice take on the style.
