WEDNESDAY, MAY 31 2017: Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion 006 before Le Fomo and The Abides

PREFUNK: Firestone Walker Brewing’s Luponic Distortion is a series of craft beers that revolves approximately every 90 days, all of which showcase specific hops. The California brewery keeps a continuous “base beer” and alters the hops that are used with each new version of the series. Luponic Distortion 006 hit Peaks and Pints’ western red cedar tap log with a blend of seven hop varieties led by two hops grown in the up-and-coming region of Michigan. This IPA ultimately provides a vivid taste of a unique hop Terrior for an earthy bitterness and resin with a gentle bready malt. It’s easy, tasty drinking. Peaks and Pints, Tacoma
