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

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a slightly foggy gold, with a few fingers of fluffy white head. Smells richly of citrus-y American hops, with notes of lemon, and fresh pine-wood. Taste starts with crisp hops and barley, and quickly springs a bittersweet citrus medley of bitter lemon rind, and sweet limeade. Finishes slightly on the dry side, with a slight dynamic of sweetness and bitterness. Mouthfeel hits every part of the tongue but the back. It’s on the full side, but not aggressively carbonated. This is the first "Imperial Pils" I’ve tried, and I’m intrigued by its ability to retain such a crisp and floral taste of a double IPA, but without the heat and strength.

IPL. If you are a hophead and think lagers are wimpy, then this is a godsend. But I still don’t 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. It’s pretty good, but I’d 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 it’s at the top! Terrific!

Bottle. Bready malt aroma with notes of grass, citrus and a bit of tropical fruit hops. Pours clear golden-amber colored with a thin but retentive white head that also has good lacing. Starts with bready malt flavor as well as a bit of grassy hops. Finishes dry with grapefruity citrus and tropical fruit hop flavors with just a hint of piney hop bitterness. Pretty good IPL.
