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.

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.

Zymurgeist2 (2363) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 5, 2017
From bottle to pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange with moderate and well retained white head. Hop aroma is lacking, with more assertion form sugary bread. Flavor also lacks hops, but bitterness shows the hop additions in a moderately strong manner.

pivnizub (10805) - Bochum, Por�ř�, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle (One pint, 6 Fl Ozs): Deep golden to light amber coloured, almost clear,very stable creamy and lacy off-white head, visible carbonation; flowery hops,sweet malt, bread and caramel in the almost solid aroma; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, but not really soft; lingering dry herbal to flowery hops and subdued sweet pale malt in the finish. Not the greatest american ale, but surely very good...

3.5
78samh (288) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2016
12 oz bottle pours amber and clear with an off white head. Aroma is subdued with hints of caramel and lemon. Taste is great! Bitter yet not too bitter. Clean flavor but has a resinous hop mouth feel that is slightly sticky. Solid malt body. Without much aroma this seems like its lacking something. I would drink again. Good but not great.
