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

Bottle from friend. I have not been too kind to the new style of India Pale Lagers, but this was lovely. Think of a normal Imperial IPA with the "fat" lager taste and palate. Not something I would seek out normally, but it was interesting.

Pours in hazy orange color body with no head at all. Aroma has fruits, such as citrus and grapefruit with sweet caramel and malty balance. Taste has caramel sweetness with earthy bitterness and very dry finish. Body is full, high carbonation, dry.

mgajdaczewa (500) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 11, 2014
W obecnej chwili trudno wyobrazić mi sobie lepszego lagera. W aromacie jest sporo amerykańskiego chmielu, lekka cytrusowość, wyraźniejsze owoce tropikalne, ale też sporo nut od słodu, wyraźnie tostowo - zbożowych. W smaku solidna goryczka, wysoka pełnia, wyraźne tostowe nuty i kremowe odczucie w ustach, finisz zdecydowanie chmielowy z lekkimi rozgrzewającymi gardło nutami. Pijalność ekstremalna. Zaskakujące i doskonałe zarazem!

kramer (4939) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Pours a clear bright gold body under a frothy one finger white head that left lots of nice lacing. The nose is nicely hoppy, very fresh and leafy with a little piney note. The malt base is very clean and crisp. The flavor is just as clean as well, a load of fresh juicy and leafy hops over a light pale malt base. The malt is barely there, letting the hops do all the talking. Finishes with some light lingering bitterness. Light bodied and very easy drinking, very crisp on the finish, soft fizzy carbonation. Excellent lager.

Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized white foamy head on top of a cloudy orange to amber colored beer. Aromas of loads of hops but also some stingy hops that make it smell like plastic hops, some nettle, some apricot, some grapefruit, grapes, herbs.very nice crispy aroma! Flavours of hops, grapefruit, some apricot, some flowers, nice bitters, crispy herbs, some yeast, crispy hop tones... Just very well balanced and tasty as hell! Nice! Aftertaste is crispy medium bitter with herbs, flowers, fruit and of course hops. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, very good medium bodied and a creamy texture. Very nice beer, easy drinkable, full of hops and very well balanced!
