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 - itís 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.

Bottle from Euston Tap. Pours a nice rich gold with medium carbonation. Lovely rich heavy hop aroma. Flavour is less hoppy, more lagery notes - which I donít particularly care for but Iím sure this is a grand example of a hoppy lager style. Great for the aroma and no doubt a well made beer but I probably wouldnít have another (unless it was on draught, at source, and cheaper!).

Super citrus hop aroma blast with just as bitter start on the tongue to match. Mellow yellow amber color with a thin head. Very enjoyable.

SG111 (119) - - SEP 15, 2014
Bottled. Pours a brilliant hazy orange color. Aroma is big orange, citrus, hop forward , slight maltiness in the back. Flavor is orange and hops up front, with a fair amount of maltiness, sweetness and breadiness. Mouthfeel is big carbonation. Very noticeable carbonation here. Not as good as their Hopstitution XL but itís no slouch.

blklab2007 (1966) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle poured an orange golden in color with a covering of white head. Aroma has bright hops, citrus blasted, sweet resins, and lager malts. Very clean and shows off all the hop goodness. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation a bit low. Flavor again has a great clean pilsner malt base, citrus, resins, a touch of sweetness, and finishes clean and crisp.
