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.

Hands-down awesome beer. It has some mouthfeel, you'd expect it to be overly bitter, but it's crazy smooth and balanced. The color is beautiful, there's a slight haze from it not being filtered, smell is fruity and hoppy, and the taste is balanced. If you can get your hands on this, try it.
