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

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle: Very light copper-amber color with excellent clarity. Only a very mild haze in the center that’s gone after a few minutes. Foamy white head leaves modestly chunky lacing behind. Nose is heavily hopped, giving off notes of lemon zest, pineapple, bitter citrus rind, leafy pines, hop oils, & only a mild touch of toasted cracker malts backing up the hop assault. First sip is lathered with wet, juicy, oily, piney hops. Somewhat grassy, almost floral, & most definitely pungent. On the edge of dank, but not quite there. Light resinous attack, too. The latter half reveals a larger fruit essence of pineapple, grapefruit, & herbal lemon tea leaves. Modest essence of crackery & bread laden malts, however the bitterness of the hops sustains much further into the finish than the malts, leaving a mild white pepper spiciness on the tongue after each sip. Fresh, clean, snappy mouth feel. Crushable as hell. Delicious stuff.

Pale golden-orange pour the aroma is bright and spicy. A nice tropical hop aroma along with a bit of soft sweetness the hops are a bit faded on the palate but it’s still a lovely brew. Has a honeyed sort of flavour on the back.

bnokk (286) - Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Draft, legal C APPEARANCE – Light yellow for an ipa. NOSE - Some hop character, nothing really stands out. FLAVOR - light hoppiness. Not overwhelmingly bitter, floral or resinous. NOTES - pretty typical ipa. Unremarkable, but it seems like it could be a good session drinker. Supports Shigadeyo's theory that 80% of IPAs are the same.

Garrold (2691) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Tap. Shakespeare’s, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Thin, dense, lasting, white head. Fresh, minty, black berry hop. It’s akin to a lager with a blackcurrant top. In the nicest possible way. Taste is gentle bitter. Some fruity sweet. Crisp, clean palate. Finishes juicy bitter. Some dry on the close. Quite unusual, really, but very drinkable, fresh, and tasty. Nice one.
