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.

bottled 6/25/15 poured into snifter
This beer poured a orange-golden color with a moderate white head.. Amazing lace down the glass. Smell is of tropical fruit and citrus with a hint of cracker, breadiness. Taste has the fruitiness of the nose interplaying with the pilsener malt to balance out nicely. Feel is medium with moderate carb. Love me some hoppy lagers.
