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

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Celebration pint glass. The color is a yellow gold with a small amount of haze and a finger of foamy white head with little lacing on the glass. The smell is hoppy but not knock you over hoppy as a orange aroma comes out to greet you. Along with some hop aroma there is some sweet pilsner malts that has a bit of a biscuit aroma. The taste is hoppy and gives a bit of bitterness with orange rind and earthy, leafy greens. There is a touch of tangerine, passion fruit and even some lemon-like flavor for a moment. The malts then steer into more biscuit flavor and some saltine flavor is there before bitterness is rained down over the back-end. The feel of this beer is light and is quit drinkable. This is really smooth with ever the smallest bump in the road of bitterness. This makes a good early spring beer.

12oz bottle pours a pale yellow color with a bit of head. Great balance of hops and malt. Better than most IPAs I've had lately.

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.
