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 Coppers, Newcastle. This golden beer has a malty, almond, pine and orange marmalade flavour with smooth creamy notes on the bitter opine finish. Excellent!

Prufrockstar (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2014
12pz bottle thanks to BoostIPA. Damn, this is a lager? Badass. Pours pale gold, clear with rocky white head. Aroma of dank, skunky, hoppy goodness. Beneath that is just a little citrus. Taste: hop punch up front; fruity underpinnings. Remarkably clean and dry lager core beneath the hop front. Light body, lively carbonation. I could drink the shit out of this. This is fantastic.

This is a really nice beer - somehow the lagering mellows out the bitterness of the hops. Excellent mouth feel, excellent taste. As a New Englander, I’m really glad to find a local IP(x) with a citrusy, not toasty, hopped flavor.

Fruity notes are moderate, a very well balanced beer with a dry finish versus the typical overpowering bitter aftertaste of an IPA.

Extraordinary beer, elegant but strong, extremely dry and tasty, perfectly rounded and finished after a development without a break. It’s at the same level than, for instance, My Antonia. Great stuff.

I love this beer, my absolute favorite. Piney, citrusy smell. Bitter taste on the palate. I could live on this beer!

On tap at Ames Plow in Fanueil Hall, sweet aroma, resinous hops, sticky. Good beer.

Barreras (978) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Pours a yellow color with a white head. A floral aroma with a spicy scent. Taste is bitter with notes of coriander and heavy hops. The hops comes through cleanly with an overpowering punch. A good IPA flavor that was a little overdone.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2014
Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing this! smooth and nice floral nose. The beer starts smooth, very floral. Quite sweet for an IPL. The sweetness covers the great floral aromas. Citrus, floral fresh hops and lots of sweetness. Nice, floral but too sweet.

Bottle. Pours deep orange with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has grass, sweet malts, light vinious. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has grass, citrus, malts, apple, fresh and quite elegant.
