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

BlowOffTube (499) - Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2013
Slightly hoppy, grassy smell. Pours burnt orange and very clear. White head that disappeared. Low-medium carbonation which I really enjoy. Easy drinker. Clean hoppy taste that doesn’t over power and has just enough body to let the hops stand out cleanly. Nice IPL.

wyzzywyz22 (2000) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Clear dark orange pour with a small white head. Caramel and fruity, piney hop in the beak. Really welcome hoppage in the flavour alongside some juicy citrus leading to a dry bitter finish. A crisp and characterful lager that is a really good interpretation of the style.
