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

Pours a clear gold color with some lacing and no head retention. Tastes hoppy and citrusy, but does remind me of lager. A decidedly nice drink.

RexTalionis (2927) - FINLAND - APR 12, 2015
Bottle. Pale goldenyellow in color with a whitish head. Citrus, floral summer meadow and grainy notes on the nose. Fresh grassy notes too. Crisp and refreshing. Lemony juicyness and bit of grainy notes backing up the package here tastewise. Excellent brew, and something that would suite very well during the summer time.

GIJOE (763) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - APR 3, 2015
Pours pale amber with a foamy, off-white head that dissipates within a minute or so. Moderate lacing. Nose is mildly malty, notes of mango and lemon. Taste is somewhat sweet with a cross-current of hoppy bite. Medium body, lively carbonation. Very tasty, refreshing brew. Glad to see some rethinking of the tired, old lager!

Nice IPA scent but not overpowering, rich golden color, has a ipa taste to start but has a fruit hint so it's not bitter. They say it's aged, maybe that mellows it out some, no noticeable aftertaste, clean taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
