The base beer of Luponic Distortion always remains the same, but each new release features a different hop blend built around emerging and experimental cultivars—all designed to showcase the possibilities of pure hop aromas and flavors.
The lead hops in No. 11 include cultivars from three different continents, providing distinct qualities of pineapple, guava and lemon drop.
In the words of Brewmaster Matt Brynildson, “No. 11 showcases an emergent new hop from the Pacific Northwest that is loaded with this unique pineapple character. We complemented this with an Australian hop that contributes a distinct guava quality, as well as a German hop that rounds it all out with a candied lemon character. As always, these aromas and flavors are derived solely through hops—no lemon drops or pineapples were killed in the making of this beer.”
