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

Really good taste. Nice body. Not sure if I would call it an Imp. Pilsener, but is that even a style or not one could debate. Great beer!

A difficult style it is, but this one comes close to truly delivering. Better body than usual lets the hops come to their right. Nice and crisp too.

12 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma has big tropical fruit and citrusy hop notes with some spicy resin and a bit of caramel. Flavour has grapefruit, mango, lychee and pineapple with some resinous notes and a solid sweet maltiness. Finishes a little dry. Impressive.

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.
