Craft Beer Review – Caldera Brewing Hop Hash

Caldera Hop Hash

Caldera Brewing – Hop Hash: Brewed in Oregon at a strength of 6.5% with 95 IBUs, this IPA use pure Hop Lupulin extracted from a pelletizing line according to the description on the bottle. It’s part of their Kettle Series, aka small batch releases. I’m always up for trying a more experimental beer, so here we go!

Aroma and Appearance: It pours with the typical two fingers of foam with a copper orange colour and some bubbles in the middle. The aroma is tangerine citrus, biscuit malt and caramel with fresh pine.

Flavour: In some ways, this is liquid pine tree. There is some chewy bread malt, some caramel, but its mostly woodsy pine from start to finish, with lots of pine resin and herbal bitterness at the end.

Overall Impression: Despite the huge pine offerings, it still balances out enough to be pretty decent.

Rating: I give it a very good rating of 7/10, pretty good stuff and a bit of a different taste to it than your typical IPA.

Food Pairing: For this one, drink on it’s own to see how it tastes different than a typical hop pellet IPA.
