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

Subtle citrus aroma, what is note worthy with this beer is the dry hop finish. The bitter hop taste makes this beer a hop lovers dream.

12-ounce can pours hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma: pine, pineapple. Flavor: all of the above, plus white pepper. Medium-bodied. Flavor: caramel, brown sugar, bubblegum, dark bread, pepper, pinecones. Rich mouthfeel. Thereís a sweetness that assaults your tastes buds and lingers a bit too long for me. Too malt-forward for me, so cloying. Their Excess IPL is a more pleasant beer, but I acknowledge itís all personal preference.

A great hoppy IPL with a just the right amount of bitterness and a dry finish. Has a gold color and a frothy white head when poured. The hops permeate the aroma. Iím thankful to be able to buy this on the regular in Massachusetts.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a honey gold color topped by a medium-sized rocky beige head. Aroma is light grainy malt and tropical fruit hops. First sip is light malt and subtle citrus hops. Very smooth with medium body. Bitter hops come in around midtaste. Very drinkable with nice malt/hop balance. At 6.5% ABV, the alcohol only appears late in finish, though it is unobtrusive. Great clinging lace to boot. Outstanding!

IPL. If you are a hophead and think lagers are wimpy, then this is a godsend. But I still donít think it works as well as an IPA. The body is too clean to resist the hops, and the result is something that ends bitter (although I myself have a high tolerance for that sort of thing). West Coast grapefruit and pine with a cheesy aftertaste. Not a lot of aroma for its taste. Itís pretty good, but Iíd rather they used ale yeast.

Quality stuff! Pours transparent gold w/ a white head & decent lacing. The aroma is a huge burst of west coast floral hops! The taste is hpppy yet clean & crisp at the same time. Tasty & highly drinkable. If this is a Pilsner, I see why itís at the top! Terrific!
