Notes / Commercial Description:
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 lupulin for bitterness, taste and aroma. This ale gets its name from pure hop lupulin extracted and scraped from the Hopunion pelletizing line. Lupulin is the glandular powder separated from the strobiles of the Humulus Lupulus (hops) plant.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into chilled glass mug. Colour is amber / orange with an off white head. Smells of mild hops and a slight citrus. Taste is more fruity than most American IPA's but still mild and goes down easy. Prost!

Deep amber color with foamy off white head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is malt and bread with some light citrus. Flavor has that toasted malt, caramel and a bunch of hops bitterness thrown in. It packs a little alcohol heat even. Pine and grapefruit rind. The mouthfeel is resinous. Bitter aftertaste, with a hint of sweetness, like raw cocoa powder. A decent beer overall.

Smooth and strong hop hint
golden brown pouring slippery
inviting bitter.

Above is my opinion of this brew in haiku verse.
I desire to contribute and have to rehearse
In order to make my critique meet
150 characters is beer advocate at its worst.
