COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Luponic Distortion is not a single beer, but rather an ongoing series of beers that will evolve and revolve approximately every 90 days. It all kicks off with Revolution No. 001, to be followed by Revolution No. 002 and so on. The base beer will remain the same with each new release, but the hop blend will change every time, so that no two releases will be exactly alike. In other words, there will be a common thread, but also some turns in the road as different hops are pushed to the forefront. Luponic Distortion is an intentional departure from the heavier style of many IPAs. Instead, it aims for a razor-like brightness, providing a clean platform for the hop aromas to pop as vividly as possible. As many as nine different hops will be included in each release, with up to six used in the dry hopping alone. However, with each release, the brewing team is going to turn up the volume a different featured experimental hop, which will be dry hopped in greater quantity than the others. “We can completely evolve, change and redirect this thing as new hops come to us and as we get to know the hops better,” says Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “Luponic is this beer that can keep morphing and stay interesting and remain out in front of this crazy hop wave.”

6/1/17 (Chicago). 12 oz can, canned 3/3/16, poured into tulip glass. Hazy blond pour, slight white lacing, solid carbonation. Fruity pine aroma, citrus and hops present. Fruity beer offset pleasantly by bitter hops. Citrus, hops, pine the predominant taste. Firm mouth feel, solid carbonation makes you notice going down. Overall good offering and I look forward to trying future additions.

Love the hops and the floral. The bitterness and dryness got a little too much in the end.

I love the concept of this beer, in that there will be differences depending on what number in the series is in your glass. I found the beer average for an IPA however.
