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

Enjoyable beer. Great balance between hops, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Grassy hop explosion on the aroma...fresh and sweet, love the aroma. Taste is just as good. Hoppy grass up front with a sweet bitter finish. White lacing left on glass...yellow/orange cloudy color. Big fan of this beer. Next time I am in Mass. I will seek out.

Skinnyviking (6746) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle at Café Viking. Medium high white fluffy lasting head. Cloudy orange body. Sweet mango peach aroma. Dry fruity nutty flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long dry and bitter finish.

dmac (3896) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle shared at Paul’s. Poured a thin watery light clear gold with a small foamy white head. Aroma/flavor of earth, light dirty citrus, grassy hops. Medium to slightly lighter body, average carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste.

Pours cloudy golden color with a decent sized white head. Nice citrus aroma with some tropical fruit. Sweet citrus start with some mango and pineapple notes. Finish is slightly metallic and pine holiness. Finish is smooth and crisp. This brew is wicked good!

zacgillbanks (2094) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This golden beer has a malty, almond, pine and orange marmalade flavour with smooth creamy notes on the bitter opine finish. Excellent!

Prufrockstar (797) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2014
12pz bottle thanks to BoostIPA. Damn, this is a lager? Badass. Pours pale gold, clear with rocky white head. Aroma of dank, skunky, hoppy goodness. Beneath that is just a little citrus. Taste: hop punch up front; fruity underpinnings. Remarkably clean and dry lager core beneath the hop front. Light body, lively carbonation. I could drink the shit out of this. This is fantastic.

rzaxxx (15) - Rhode Island, USA - JUL 2, 2014
This is a really nice beer - somehow the lagering mellows out the bitterness of the hops. Excellent mouth feel, excellent taste. As a New Englander, I’m really glad to find a local IP(x) with a citrusy, not toasty, hopped flavor.

voyageurmike (15) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Fruity notes are moderate, a very well balanced beer with a dry finish versus the typical overpowering bitter aftertaste of an IPA.

Extraordinary beer, elegant but strong, extremely dry and tasty, perfectly rounded and finished after a development without a break. It’s at the same level than, for instance, My Antonia. Great stuff.

I love this beer, my absolute favorite. Piney, citrusy smell. Bitter taste on the palate. I could live on this beer!
