BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

A: Small head, copper in color with great clarity.

S: Piney, citrus, resiny, and tropical hops. Very fruity, kinda like a kid cocktail. Sweetness coming trough.

T: Bitterness comes trough right away. Fruity up from and the malts come in with bready notes with lingering chalky bitterness in the end. Bitterness eventually mellows out after a while. Pretty subdued flavor.

M: Smooth, crisp, medium bodied, love the dryness.

O: Pretty solid IPL. Really loved the aroma but the flavor was subdued and mostly tasted malt profile and bitterness of the hops.
