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.

Pours golden with copper hues with a small off-white head, fading into a good lace. Nice earthy hops aromas with some citrus and a definite lager nose. Clean, crisp attack, smooth creamy body, good bitterness that lingers for a good while. This world needs more great lager like this one!

r464 (2069) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Bitter hops, then a punch of grapefruit and malt. Not too sweet, but some fruit in there, then leads to a fairly dry finish with a very nice balanced hops profile. Quite good.

Great discovery. Light IPA-like beer (was presented to me as part of a IPA degustation). Very well-balanced with exceptional aromas.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-apricot color with a large creamy-soapy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet, tnagy pine, honey and citrus. The flavor was sweetyet bitter, piney, citric and a hint of perfume. Long finish with growing bitterness. Moderately full bodied. Tasty!

bennetporter (384) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2015
I’m rating this one as an IPA. Pours a slightly hazy amber from a bottle with a small white head. Aroma of floral/tropical hops, flavor is not quite citrusy, but sweet and not overly bitter surprisingly. Very good beer. HELEN
