The latest release in Firestone's Luponic Distortion series, each offering a different hop profile, features a blend of seven hops, though the star is the hops grown at Hop Head Farms in Michigan. The nose is all citrus upfront, with some minty, herbal and white floral accents that lend depth and interest. The palate offers more of the same, grounded by a clean malt profile and medium carbonation. It's not quite medium bodied, with a crisp, clear color and a mild bitterness that persists through the finish.
