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.

This is little different and a pleasant surprise. Dark honey color that matches a sweet honey, florals, malty nose. Taste is equal parts malt and bitter hops -- very nice balance. Light to medium body. Refreshing. Outstanding brew.

Very very good beer. Crisp and refreshing. Nice little hop presence. Good stuff here! Would love definitely have this beer regularly if I could get my hands on it.

Disappointed by this one. Hoppy but weirdly bitter.
