Brew Info:
  • Brewery: SaltFire Brewing Company (Salt Lake City, Utah)
  • Website:
  • Brew: Wet Hop Lupulin Dew                     
  • Style: American Pale Ale (APA)
  • Serving: 12 ounce bottle 
  • ABV: 5.6%
  • Pour: The Lupulin Dew pours a hazy, golden-yellow with a 1-finger, off-white, frothy head that dissipates to a thin ring, but with sticky lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is citrusy, floral, grassy, lightly bready, and slightly sweet.  There are aromas of wild flowers, summer grass, grapefruit rind, orange peel, pine resin, honey, and sweet caramel.
  • Taste: The taste of the Lupulin Dew is bold, bitter, and hoppy, yet very drinkable.  There are notes of green and grassy hops, orange and lemon zest, grapefruit juice, soft caramel, freshly baked bread, and light pine.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation, the mouthfeel of theLupulin Dew is crisp with a slightly bitter and dry finish.

Overall pairing:
The punchy, grassy, bitter, and hoppy flavors and aromas of the Wet Hop Lupulin Dew  is perfect for the head-banging insanity that is Morbid Angel's "Entangled In Chaos"!  Those crisp flavors enhance the precision and technical mastery of Azagthoth's and Rutan's fiery guitars while the breadier notes are perfect for the powerful rhythm section of Sandoval and Vincent!

HAILS!!  Raise those glasses and horns to Morbid Angel!!
