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

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - APR 21, 2014
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.

Bottles and draft since debut, Boston area
Of the three main beers that came out initially (this, Red Tape and Smoke and Dagger), I like this one by far the least. The beer pours fine, well-carbonated, golden and bright with strong head retention. From the first sniff and sip, it’s clear that this beer is marketed to the aggressively bittered IPA crowd. Heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy resin. Just tastes like a mouthfull of acid. Can barely choke down a pint of it at the bar when there isn’t much else. Thankfully, Jabby Brau is showing up most places as well.

Bottle. Golden yellow pour with a medium off white head. Aroma of graham crackers, citrus and pine hops. Easy drinking with a crisp clean finish.
