BEER INFO

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.

Basically the drinkability of a session IPA but I get the 6.7% ABV. Smooth. Flavorful. Good. Period.

Interesting brew. Smells like an IPA, though not crazy tropical fruit IPA. Taste a bit sweet and subdued. I could drink a bunch of these but not enough pop to warrant a higher rating.
