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

Oh yeah, that one was special. It was so hoppish and mild and drinkable and nice. A nice balanced piwo with a big body containing some fruits, some hay, a bit bread and a big alcohol towards the end. Good looking, good tasting = thumbs up.

The first I’ve had of this style. Very nice hop aroma with more of a cereal than caramel maltiness. Taste was of citrus pine hops and very clean bready melon malt. Finish was not as dry as expected. Nice. I would really enjoy this in summer.
