COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with 2-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is piney resiny sticky hops, tangerine, black pepper, caramel malt. Medium of palate heft and cmplexity, with resiny hops, some tropical fruit, an overall tart bitterness.

Strykzone (4966) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bomber from Hayduke. We had this over facebook chat. An almost clear copper beer that sports a good sized off white fluffy head. It becomes rocky. Nice lace. Caramel is out front in the nose with lesser gentle fruit. The first sip brings graham crackers. Floral and pine flavors with light bitterness. Caramel. No fruit is tasted until I took a big gulp and then did get some. And then it grows with warming. Caramel malts grow, to. Resin. A different hop profile here is a little hard to pin down. A nice easy to drink IPA but not your typical west coast hop variety.

hayduke (3380) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 6, 2014
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. It poured a very rich amber with a beige head. Moderate lacing. Nose is malts with citrus, flowers, pine, and little fruit. Medium body. Pine bitterness dominates and I had to coax the fruit to the surface. Long bitter finish. Easy drinking however.

Oakes (12639) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Cloudy dull brown with bubbly head. Bitterness and butterness, muddy yeast and not much else. I used to like this brewery...a real disappointment.

Tuggis (15) - SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2014
Flask 65cl. Lätt kopparfärgad. Maltig och fruktig lukt. Smak av karamell, ananas. Inte så humlig som jag hoppades på.

stchloe (793) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Another solid Caldera IPA, strong hop profile with lots of spicy and fruity hop notes, amber body holds it all together, and has a long lasting flavor.

Gerbeer (1807) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with moderate head. Aromas of pine, tropical fruit, and toasted malts. Flavors of candied grapefruit, rubber, pine, brown sugar, and tropical fruit. Definitely fruity. Very nice but not really distinctive.
