Spotlight: Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion

Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion can

Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion is joining the brewery’s full time lineup this month. The beer will change (or as the brewery puts it, evolve) every 90 days.

Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion has been available in the past as a specialty release in the past. What the beer will be going forward is what brewer Matt Brynildson has wanted pretty much his whole career – the ability to build a hoppy beer with no restraints.

“Every time someone goes to drink a Pivo or Easy Jack or other Firestone beer, it should taste the same every time,” Brynildson said. “That all changes with Luponic Distortion.”

The first edition, a.k.a. Revolution 001, is ready to go. Every 90 days, Distortion will change – mostly in hop character.

Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion is a 12 ounce can and bottle offering. Intended to be consumed within a 90 day window.

How does it taste? Crisp and hoppy.  A massive treat for hop lovers, packaged nearly in 12 ounce cans and bottles. Brynildson really shows off not only his love of hops, but talent in brewing with them. This has all the earmarks of being a successful and sought after series from Firestone Walker.

Style: American IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans, 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Launch: February, 2016

5.9% ABV

  1. I like the idea, but rarely does the “same package, different beer” thing really work. FW will pull it off better than most. Has everyone really not figured out that you just clone Treehouse (or the like) IPAs?

      • There’s some truth to that, but I haven’t heard anyone bitching about too many juicy fruit hazy mosaic bombed IPAs, even though most of them taste pretty much the same with some difference in the fruit notes. Plus, there isn’t really one that has wide distribution just yet, at least in the midwest for sure. There is a jackpot to be had for someone pulling some hop strings and getting one of those out on the regular. Call it “Tugging my Hop Strings”. There it is. I’m thinking Evil Twin. Have a good one, man!

  2. Excellent commentary , I learned a lot from the details ! Does anyone know if my company could possibly obtain a sample IRS W-3C version to edit ?

  3. Lovely article – one of the best things I’ve recently read, and by far the most useful. You touched on a topical issue. I would appreciate if you’d written about how to fill a form online. BTW, there is an online service through which you can fill out a IRS W-3C, the fillable blank is here http://goo.gl/BN4ncm.
