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.

davidajensen (206) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Nice beer. Creamy head with good lacing. The head holds up. A little metallic, the finish is dry and clean up front but the bitterness lingers in the back of the mouth.

(Caldera Hop Hash IPA) Bottle 650 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 6.5% Deep orange colour on the body two full fingers of thick, off-white head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing around the glass. Light orange and tangerine on the aroma, some caramel malts too. Taste is mildly sweet at first, with light oranges, tangerine, cake, jelly, good bitterness on the finsih and the afterrtaste though.
