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 itíll be.

This is a pretty good IPA. Not as pungent on the schnoz or as "punchy" on the hop backend, but I had no complaints. Interesting brewing process, as describe in the descriptor. Iíd like to let the brewer know that itís got a decent hop presence, as it appears he was unaware of how hoppy itíll be. I liked it. Would do business with again. A+++

laiti (5604) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
65 cl bottle @ olio
Aroma is rather sweet with sugary tones and fruity hops. Also some weird dough and toffee notes. Flavour has toffee, some gooseberry bush, grapefruit and hints of caramel. Feels British. A musty disappointment and does not feel as hoppy as I thought.

lusikka (6184) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a copper amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is rather spicy with herbal notes, weed and citrus. Flavour of rich herbal bitterness, weed, spiciness, pine, some malts, pineapple and some lemon. Medium bodied and soft mouthfeel. Very long, lingering bitter, herbal finish. Really nice hop profile here.

tiong (3700) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
650ml bottle

Pours copper orange with a foamy head. Aroma of herbal hops, stingy notes, crisp malts and resinous notes. Taste is sweetish, herbal hoppy and crisp malty with some grassy and resinous notes. Finish is dry, bitter and herbal with some crisp maltiness. Okay, but Iím not the biggest fan of this kind of herbal hop profile.

This beer has a golden brown color. Strong citrus aroma and a strong bitter taste that lingers and keeps you thinking about the next sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
