Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion Revolution 007...$8.99 / 6pk
Now in rotation: Revolution No. 007, the latest release in Firestone Walker’s Luponic Distortion revolving hop series, featuring yet another trailblazing blend of distinctive hops.
True to form, Luponic Distortion Revolution No. 007 represents a fresh iteration of Luponic Distortion led by three hop varieties from Australia.
From A Land Down Under
Revolution No. 007 marks the second time that Luponic Distortion has dipped down into the Southern Hemisphere for its lead hops, following the South African hops that set the tone for Revolution No. 004 last year.
“The hop intensity level on Revolution No. 007 is high,” says Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “The primary Australian hop is loaded with this bright, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc character, and the other two hops round it out with classic Southern Hemisphere qualities.”
Matt had longed to work with the primary Australian hop in Revolution No. 007, but it was in short supply and already contracted.
“I always thought it would be a good fit for Luponic Distortion, but I couldn’t get my hands on it,” he says. “Then I got word that a brewery had backed out of a contract for this hop, and I was able to grab enough to drive Revolution No. 007.”
He adds, “That’s the beauty of Luponic Distortion. It provides the flexibility and creative freedom for us to pivot quickly. Whenever we discover fresh, interesting hops that fit the profile, we are able to get them right into the next revolution—and Revolution No. 007 is a perfect example of this.”
