Caldera's Hop Hash Ale is a partnership with Hopunion, LLC. Hop Hash is like a breakfast hash, but mashing different hop varieties instead of meat, potatoes and spices - a twist on the American Style Strong Pale Ale using pure luplin for bitterness, taste and aroma. This ale gets its name from pure hop luplin extracted and scraped from the Hopunion pelletizing line. Luplin is the glandular powder separated from the strobiles of the Humulus Lupulus (hops) plant.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    22oz bottle -

    Aroma - floral hops, caramel malts, some tropical fruit notes

    Appearance - copper body, 2-finger light tan head, above average retention, light lacing

    Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation

    Flavor - light fruity notes, heavy bitterness but ragged.

    Overall - Kinda like trying a super-super hot hot sauce. Yeah it's hot but lacks flavor. This is bitter, but it lacks character. Not bad.

    Bomber from Central City. Clear amber.orange pour with a fluffy ivory head, and nice retention. Aroma was less obvious than my previous Caldera offering (Hopportunity Knocks), some pine resin and citrus grapefruit. Flavour fared a little better, with a nice bitter bite from the pine and grapefruit. Mouthfeel just above average. Hint of caramel at the finish. Unremarkable but still nice to drink.
