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.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
22oz bottle $4.99 and marked at 6.5% ABV. Copper color, decent head, smells boring. Slight bit of hops and malt, really underwhelming. The taste was a step up, decent bitterness, hops, chewy malt and a thickness that is good. Definitely feels more like a string pale ale rather than an IPA. Not bad at all.

Sarlacc83 (1542) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle. A: Pours out a cloudy amber body with a gigantic creme color head that threatens to runneth over the cusp of my glass. N: Pine, grapefruit, earth, cracker, fresh leaves with a woodsy smell followed by a good floral smash. Some pineapple and further citrus as the beer opens up. T: Potently bitter, yet, there’s enough malt here to prop this up so it’s hoppy and not astringent. M: Very dry, medium body, soft carbonation, light alcohol. This one will scrap out your throat but what good. O: A solid IPA. It’s definitely for those people who like the pinier side of things, though I must also admit that I found it very good even if I have a preference for the citrus. A good one I would have again.

27.09.2015, @beertemple, musluk Bronz bulanık renk, beyaz köpük. Koku ve tatta çok yoğun, gövdeli şerbetçiotu yağları baskın. Aromatik, acı ve bir ipa'dan beklenmedik derecede kremamsı. Farklı, karakterli ve yoğun.. Kompleks olmasa da başarılı.
