COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Clusters were the dominant hop in the US brewing industry literally for centuries, and the forerunner of many of our modern Northwest varieties. They have a unique aroma with quite a bit of citrus and a heft of herbal goodness. Clusterf#ck features Clusters in the kettle, in the hop back, and especially in the fermenter for dry-hopping. Pilsner and honey malt form the baseline. This year’s version is a bit stronger and hoppier than last year’s... cheers to that!

On tap at Suds and Suds. Dank and hoppy. Some malt in the background. Finish is both bitter and sweet. Grapefruit flavor comes out more as the brew warms. A well done IPA. Tasty.

Tap at Fiddlers.

Delighted to have the chance to try this old-time American hop in a single-hop beer. Surprisingly light-colored pour; the beer looks more like a golden ale than an IPA in the glass. Enjoyable clean flavor profile, big tropic fruit with herbal tea elements, 7+ % alcohol entirely hidden. Delicious.

Good looking draught beer. Not like an IPA, Soapy. This was the most memorable for me, the soapiness. It tasted like dish soap, it had texture like dish soap. It is not like a good beer.

didn’t really do it for me, maybe I’m too accustomed to NW hops, but this one just didn’t have too much going on.

Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hops aroma. This is a single hopped IPA. Good malt background and the hops add to the flavor. Floral, fruity and a light earthiness to the taste. This was a great beer.
