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 - itís 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

bavarian81 (49) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Iíve been drinking this beer for at least a year or two before Iíve decided to review it. And itís been one of my favorites since then. This beer has a very nice looking deep gold color with a finger width head. The body is super smooth. Taste and aroma are both wonderful. The aroma has a nice tint of that bready malt you find in good quality pilsners and pale lagers as well as an aroma of floral hops. The taste very nicely balanced with malt, citrus, and floral hops. At the same time itís very easy drinking, clean, and delicious. Itís a magnificent beer.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Slightly grassy, hoppy aroma has manifold lemon notes, a touch of lime, hints of pine and pineapple. Taste is citrusy hoppy, minimally grassy, hints of pine and pineapple; soft palate, gentle though refreshing carbonation. More evidence for the fact that lager yeast and American/West Coast/dry- hopping go well together.
