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.

A- Deep golden body with just a hint of amber. Mostly transparent, but a slight haze to it. Big, foamy, frothy white head that leaves a mess of sticky lacing behind.

S- Herbal hops with some citrus and tropical fruit undertones. Slight hint of toasted bread is there too, just behind the hops.

T- Very nice hop flavors come through first, with the herbal characteristics there, followed by zesty citrus and hints of mango and tropical fruit flavors. The toasty malt comes through enough to balance the big bitter hops.

M- Medium bodied, with a lot of stickiness to it. Medium carbonation and easy to drink.

O- A tremendous hoppy lager. Big, bitter hop goodness with a toasted malt body.
