Happy Thirsty Thursday, beer and art lovers! This week’s new beer painting is of Luponic Distortion Revolution IPA No. 007 by Firestone Walker Brewing Company in Paso Robles, CA. I have been enjoying this hop revolving revolution IPA with Southern Hemisphere hops from Australia. At 5.9% ABV with a fierce hop aroma, and flavor, I can hardly notice any of yesteryear’s hop bitterness. This is truly a new form of IPA, one that hardly resembles anything that ever came out of England. I wonder if the Brits would have called a beer that was hoppy and strong going to Australia, an Australian Pale Ale. Brings new meaning to the acronym APA. I have been waiting to paint this beer, and I thought I would showcase the Australia element by having a kangaroo drinking it. I figured this character is thirsty, so I gave her a couple extras in her pouch for reserve. Anyway, if you haven’t been enjoying the hop showcase that Luponic Distortion is offering, get down to your local beer shop and pick up a can, or 12 of this luscious nectar. Luponic is right, these hops are working! Cheers to the Distortion!
