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 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- color is a bright gold. Carbonation within the beer is invisible, beer pours a moderate amount of white, thin head that settles into spotty lacing.

Smell-Mildly fruity, Resin, grass, faintest yeast.

Taste- Upfront is Resin, mild fruit, (maybe melon?), Slightly citrusy, slightly floral, toasty, yeasty notes.

Mouthfeel Light/ medium body, medium/ high carbonation, crisp, slightly dry in the end.

overall- excellent beer, satisfies on many levels, tasty, refreshing, satisfying, this could easily become a go to for me
