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.

Deep amber beer, big pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and crisp, semi dry. Mild minerals. Malts provide mild sweetness to balance the bitter hops. Mild caramel and very mild cream. Noble tasting hops, big floral bitterness with a touch of grassy harshness. Trace of citrus. Crispy dry finish, mild citric linger. Mmmmm - comes over like an Imperial English Bitter. Tasty but a bitter bastard.

Oakes (12789) - 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.

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours copper amber wth a foamy/creamy 4 finger beige head. Mixed fruit hop aromas over a caramel backbone. Med + body. Flavor is sort of mildly cooked caramel covered by a huge amount of hop. No harsh NW thing here. It’s mixed fruits and florals, with maybe a bit of pine. A fruity ale rather than a resin ale. Quite delicious.
