COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bomber bottle, thanks to my cuz, Jeff! Aroma is a lot of simcoe hops. Taste is a multitude of hops that finish pretty cleanly. Palate is hoppy and a little too much. Overall, a decent double IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The 22-oz bottle poured a clear amber color with a robust off-white head. Good retention. Nose brings an aroma of pine and grapefruit. Medium body and resinous mouth feel Flavor packs a lot of hops with citrus and pine on good malts. The finish is quite bitter. Quite nice. pDark amber color with a creamy off-white head. Nice citrus/pine aromas.

Strykzone (5342) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bomber from Hayduke. I like the label art reminiscent of WWII airplane nose art. Poured at 50F and given time to warm from there. This beer is honey gold and almost at all. I smell tangerines and tropical fruit. Some pine. First sip is big bitterness that is citrus. It is astringent, too, and quite sour. This is just short of mouth puckering. At 60F something like camomile is tasted. This is a bitterness hop bomb, plain and simple.

AmEricanbrew (6181) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle@ trailer. Bright bronze body with ivory head. Big juicy fruit, tropical fruit, mango aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Heavy sweet pale malt base brew with tea leaf, herbal hoppage___too sweet and not hoppy enough for my taste---not bad tho

Natai (104) - 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.

slowrunner77 (6578) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"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."

Pours a clear copper with medium head. Aroma is citrus pine bread and some spices. Taste follows the aroma with the spices and pine hops more pronounced. Very nice.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Clear amber, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, pine, resin, light caramel, the usual works. Medium bodied, moderate to high bitterness, big PNW hops come through. Oh so typical.
