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.

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. I’d like to let the brewer know that it’s got a decent hop presence, as it appears he was unaware of how hoppy it’ll be. I liked it. Would do business with again. A+++

Flask 65cl. Lätt kopparfärgad. Maltig och fruktig lukt. Smak av karamell, ananas. Inte så humlig som jag hoppades på.

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.

[My bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a deep orange-amber with a large never-ending frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, resiny hops, floral notes and some fruit. Resiny and floral hops flavour along with caramel malt and a long moderate to big bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good, not great.

A: Amber/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thin White Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Oats, Grainy Malts, Mildly Piney T: Grainy, Mildly Piney, Mild Bittering Hops M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Drying, Mildly Bitter Overall, just a kind of boring IPA with not much flair...certainly didnt deliver with the listed Simcoe and Centennial Hops.
