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

On tap at The Ale House.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a dense white head.
Aroma: Mild but very pleasant. Mango and hints of floral aromas. Lots of tropical overtones with a hint of caramel.
Taste: Mildly floral intro into mango and other tropical tones, with a hint of caramel to balance. Nicely balanced.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately-highly carbonated.
Overall: Great IPL, really well done. This is what the style should be based on.
