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 slightly foggy gold, with a few fingers of fluffy white head. Smells richly of citrus-y American hops, with notes of lemon, and fresh pine-wood. Taste starts with crisp hops and barley, and quickly springs a bittersweet citrus medley of bitter lemon rind, and sweet limeade. Finishes slightly on the dry side, with a slight dynamic of sweetness and bitterness. Mouthfeel hits every part of the tongue but the back. It’s on the full side, but not aggressively carbonated. This is the first "Imperial Pils" I’ve tried, and I’m intrigued by its ability to retain such a crisp and floral taste of a double IPA, but without the heat and strength.

Bottle. Bready malt aroma with notes of grass, citrus and a bit of tropical fruit hops. Pours clear golden-amber colored with a thin but retentive white head that also has good lacing. Starts with bready malt flavor as well as a bit of grassy hops. Finishes dry with grapefruity citrus and tropical fruit hop flavors with just a hint of piney hop bitterness. Pretty good IPL.

tekstr1der (388) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Hazy dark golden pour with minimal white head. Aroma is dank and fruity of the tropical variety, still allowing some bready malt through. Flavor is the same with a good punch of tropical fruits dominating a malty backbone. Finish is smoother than expected. Smooth sipping throughout. Very well done.

tapefuzz (153) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Floral, citrusy hop aroma. Initial caramel maltiness turns into grapefruit with notes of mango, grass, bread, light pine, and a growing bitterness. Lingering bitter, hoppy grapefruit finish. Medium bodied, slightly above average carbonation, and a full mouthfeel.

Can at a toddler’s birthday party. Great IPL that showcases both sides of the style really well. The lager component is really clean and subtle, with just a bit of clean malt flavor, and the hops are prominent without being out of balance. Great on a hot day.

eduardovl (1359) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 12, 2016
330ml bottle served in a chalice glass. Enjoyed at PiBar-Lausanne. Pours a cloudy orange color forming a small and creamy white head with medium retention and some lacings left in the glass. Nose is sweet, very malty and very herby. Pine and booze. Taste follows the nose. Very sweet upfront taste. Strong notes of caramel and biscuit. Strong notes of tropical fruits, resin and pale malts. Hints of pine. Full body. Medium carbonation. Caramel, resin and pine in the aftertaste. Not very persistent. Good drinkability. Great strong Lager.

A unique spin. Nice maltfeel with a touch of graham cracker. Hops are rich, but not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet honey notes come through on the nose. The beer is a straw pale with very little head. The taste is mild, but balanced, with honey, bread and a light herbal grit at the finish. Goes down smooth and clean.
