COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoponius Union 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 sourced ingredients. OG 15.5 Plato

FROTHINGSLOSH (5530) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-apricot color with a large creamy-soapy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet, tnagy pine, honey and citrus. The flavor was sweetyet bitter, piney, citric and a hint of perfume. Long finish with growing bitterness. Moderately full bodied. Tasty!

bennetporter (361) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2015
I’m rating this one as an IPA. Pours a slightly hazy amber from a bottle with a small white head. Aroma of floral/tropical hops, flavor is not quite citrusy, but sweet and not overly bitter surprisingly. Very good beer. HELEN

This is so good, I don’t know what else to say. This is a blast of dankness, citrus and pine. Absolute hop bomb of a beer. The taste follows suit. Absolutely wrecks your shit hoppy with a super smooth finish from the lager yeast. I love these ipl’s, theyre so refreshing in this huge sea of sameness lately. I’ll drink this over most ipa’s currently, it’s that good. Cheers.

Bottle. Aroma of resin, tropical and citrus fruits. Citrus and tropical flavours with a crisp bitter and somewhat boozy finish. I wish all lagers were this well-hopped ;)
