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 itll be.

Draught at the Caldera Brewing Co, Ashland, CA. Clear deep amber colour with a small off-white head. Mild fruity and sweet hoppy aroma with some sweet maltiness. The flavour is a bit drier with fruity and piney hops, moderate bitterness and sweet maltiness. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tomekk1978 (1329) - Zbki, POLAND - APR 21, 2015
Aromat: niezbyt intensywny, chmielowy z nutami żywiczno- cytrusowymi. Po otwarciu nie przekonuje, ale z czasem się wzmacnia i robi się całkiem przyjemny. W tle wyraźna słodowa karmelowość oraz lekkie nuty utlenienia. Barwa: głęboko złocista, do bursztynowej, lekko zamglona. Piana biało- żłta, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości i umiarkowanie trwała. Ślicznie oblepia szkło. Smak: lekko słodki, słodowy z wyraźną nutą karmelu oraz lekko opiekaną. Następnie nieco kwaskowości i chmielowa kontra. Goryczka umiarkowana do wysokiej, trochę drażniąca i dość długa, ale nie zalegająca. Średnia pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie oraz wytrawny słodowy finisz z lekko zaznaczonym alkoholem. Piwo z 2014 roku, z oznakami utlenienia. Aromat początkowo mizerny, ale czysty i przyjemny, choć niezbyt mocny. W smaku zabrakło mi owocw, przez co goryczka była jednowymiarowa.

Countbeer (6238) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
Bomber: Served in a shaker at 13 degrees Celsius: Medium sized thick sticky creamy head. Light cloudy amber copper orange colored beer. Aroma and flavour are marked by a very nice herbal hop tone, which sets the tone and friendly dominates. Of course the bitters can not be missed together with a light hop fruity and hop flower undertone. Aftertaste is bitter, herbal, hoppy and grassy. Low carbo, creamy light hopper tingling mouthfeel and medium bodied. Nice stuff, good herbal IPA!

Bottle. Dark golden, average ro large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and some floral - tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some floral - tropical fruitiness and some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish with some caramel and light fruitiness, piney - herbal hoppyness, faint alcohol. OK IPA - could be drier with less caramel. In the finish bitterness get slightly sharp/too herbal considering the body of the beer.
