Paso Robles, CA: The next release in Firestone Walker’s Luponic Distortion revolving hop series begins rolling out today with Revolution No. 005—a blend of five hops led by an emerging American cultivar from Washington’s Moxee Valley.

“Revolution No. 005 hearkens back to some of the earlier revolutions with its assertive tropical fruit character, yet it also has it’s own unique signature,” said Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “We threw folks a bit of a curveball with the more restrained style of Revolution No. 004, and now we’re changing it up again with this new blend that will have hop heads rejoicing.”

Luponic Distortion is not a single beer, but rather an ongoing series of beers that revolves approximately every 90 days. While the base beer always remains the same, each revolution features a different hop blend built around experimental hops, designed to showcase the growing possibilities of pure hop aromas and flavors.

Luponic Distortion Revolution No. 005 is driven by a blend of four American hops with an assist from one German hop. The majority of the blend is led by a newer cultivar from the Yakima region that Brynildson has been anxious to work with for more than a year.

“One of the first things I did when we launched Luponic Distortion was to put the wheels in motion to get this hop contracted for a future revolution,” Brynildson said. “It is loaded with tropical qualities like mango, pineapple & guava, with less of that classic American grapefruit character. It’s really fresh and interesting, and it’s a fitting hop for changing things up again.”
