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

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.

Floral and light resin hop aroma. Cloudy orange color with a medium white head. Medium bitter beginning that increases in the middle fades in the finish and builds in the end again.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
12 oz bottle. Misty yellow orange with a clingy white head. Nose is orange, pineapple, mango and green apple with a hint of spearmint. Soft and silky with tiny carb prickles. Quenching yet substantial. Taste is bitter lemon, slightly sweet apple and marjoram with an earthy finish. Impressive lager.

Bright orange and clear pour from 12oz bottle at home, obtained in a trade. White ring of foamy head. Apricot and citrus fruity aroma. Lighter taste and body. Tropical fruit, lemon, a dry and slightly bitter finish. Really exceeded expectations.
