COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kettle Series. This beer gets its name from the Hopunion Hop Hash nuggets - pure hop lupulin extracted and scraped from the Hopunion pelletizing line, then boiled for 90 minutes in the kettle. According to the brewer, this has never been done before! Premium 2-row, Great Western Munich, Crisp 60L and rolled oats comprise the grain bill designed to carry this load. Fermented warm using American Ale yeast to bring out the fruitiness, the resulting beer is designed to be a surprise on all fronts. Even the brewer has no idea how hoppy it’ll be.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2016
Quite good, dense & fine yellowish head, very stable over finely carbonated deeper orange-amber beer. Bit caramelly, fresh green leaves, resiny hops. Seem to get celeri. Bitter, vegetable, even metallic, but with a caramelly, cake-bottom underbuild. Good balance, anyway. Again something soupy-celeri. Waming up, coriander??? Fresh, even greenmalt retronasal. Medium bodied, quite slick; velvety-creamy MF from the head. Far from bad, but not really great.

ffbot (310) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Pour is a thick and lazy bold gold. Tiny little head that retains. Smell is strong hops and citrus blended together, there was definitely a grapefruit or lemon peel scent to this, even a lemon zest kind of smell and taste. Taste is the hop forefront, tiny bit of fruitiness and other tastes. Residual bitter hop taste with small waves of citrus hitting.

light amber color. Malty nose with tea and pine notes. Spicy hoppy nose with big malty backbone. A bit dirty, but ok. Pretty simple.
