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

I have found the perfect Ipa. Ok, technically this is an IPL (India Pale Lager). Crisp, clean and delicious! Jackís Abby never disappoints. From the Citra hop aroma, through the sharp, yet smooth finish, this beer is phenomenal. Eminently drinkable.

This is so good, I donít know what else to say. This is a blast of dankness, citrus and pine. Absolute hop bomb of a beer. The taste follows suit. Absolutely wrecks your shit hoppy with a super smooth finish from the lager yeast. I love these iplís, theyre so refreshing in this huge sea of sameness lately. Iíll drink this over most ipaís currently, itís that good. Cheers.

I canít believe how inexpensive this beer is for the topmost quality ! Wonderful hops with a finish that tapers off to expose its lager roots in an unobtrusive, clean manner.

Amazing idea to make a super-hopped lager. So points for that. But really, this beats most session IPAs hands-down for flavor and relatively low ABV. Wonderful beer and a steal at $2.69 for 1pt. 9oz. bottle in western MA.

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.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours dark orange with a half finger off white head. Aroma is gugely hoppy. Dank, topical and citrus fruits dominate with a hint of pine. Taste is medium bitter, follows aroma. Super long finish. Great brew!

On tap at the brewery. Dense and intense aroma of fresh crushed citrus, gooey pine resin, and florals all melded together beautifully. The flavors are just as sharp and alive. This is so, so, so, so much better than 90% of all hoppy beers on the market and embarrasses most IPAs in terms of hop flavor and textural balance. Crisp, pungent, and lively. The flavors marry so well, into that explosive, rich emergent hop flavor that Iím always looking for in good Double IPAs. I thought it was so good, we left the tasting room and went out to find a bar that had it to get a full pour. Exceptional hop brewing!
