Named after the isotope essential for nuclear grade weapons, this “Weapons Grade Ale” is the hop bomb you didn’t see coming! At 100 bittering units, PU240 captures the explosive hop flavor and aroma necessary to acheive a critical mass that you won’t find in other high-hop ales. A classified and combustible amount of Summit and Galena hops along with a double Dry-hop bombardment of Simcoe, Columbus and Nugget contribute to PU240’s high rate of spontaneous hop fusion.

Natai (97) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Pours like crystalline copper with a white head and superb lacing. Strong hops aroma that includes grass and pine. Good flavor and surprisingly smooth considering the amount of hops.

"slightly better body than the regular ipa, but i like the hop profile of that one better than this one. absolutely nothing wrong with it, but the gold digger set the bar pretty high. good beer overall. rerate 1/09-had side by side with the Gold Digger and this one is actually better. GREAT body, good piney aroma and flavor. 12/10-now bottled...22’s for $7, and renamed PU240."

Homer321 (2147) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Strong pine and citrus combo in the aroma. Light red in color. Pleasant hop citrus flavors with a light malt backbone. Some alcohol noted, but smooth. A dry finish from the hop bitterness. Just a touch undercarbonated but enjoyable.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Clear orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering grapefruit and hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
