Staff Pick Of The Week | Will
"The third and newest revolution in Firestone Walker’s Luponic Distortion series boasts a mix of 9 different hop varieties, including Pacific Northwest's Comet and a new unnamed experimental German hop. Fresh, fruit forward Comet has been reborn since it’s 1970s debut during the hop wave that brought us Cascade and Centennial. Luponic Distortion No. 003 pours a pale golden color with a distinctly hoppy aroma and taste. This IPA is soft, yet full of hops with minimal dank or piney edges. Ripe peach and mandarin orange flavors are derived 100% from the unique and experimental hops in the beer.
I chose this as my Staff Pick of the Week because I admire Brewmaster Matt Brynildson’s expertise in hops and pursuit to showcase new boundaries of aroma and flavor exclusively derived from this special flower. Cheers!"
