Massachusetts, United States

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.

MFG 08.09.2013. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a pale straw color, brilliant clarity, with a finger of nice bright white head. Very good retention but minimal lacing.

S: Smooth, sweetish pale malt, and floral hops.

T: Light floral hops, nice supporting pale malt, finishing with mild to moderate lager yeast flavor with mild bitterness.

M: Super smooth, medium-light carbonation and body.

O: Nice stuff. Smooth, easy drinking with mild flavors.
