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

500ml bottle. Hoppy, piney, a little bit of citrus. Unlike any lager i’ve had. A pretty good extra hoppy pale ale imo.

Bottles and draft since debut, Boston area
Of the three main beers that came out initially (this, Red Tape and Smoke and Dagger), I like this one by far the least. The beer pours fine, well-carbonated, golden and bright with strong head retention. From the first sniff and sip, it’s clear that this beer is marketed to the aggressively bittered IPA crowd. Heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy resin. Just tastes like a mouthfull of acid. Can barely choke down a pint of it at the bar when there isn’t much else. Thankfully, Jabby Brau is showing up most places as well.

Bottle. Golden yellow pour with a medium off white head. Aroma of graham crackers, citrus and pine hops. Easy drinking with a crisp clean finish.
