Our special 10th anniversary beer is the biggest IPA we have had the nerve to make. Almost all Pale malt, with less than one percent each of Carastan and Wheat makes a beer quite pale for its size at 19 plato OG. We added Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops just about every place and every way we could think of - giving it lots of hop flavor and aroma and enough bitterness to compliment the telltale sweetness of the malt. One patron says "It makes you smile so your mouth's big enough for the beer". 6.25% alcohol by weight 7.8% by volume. This beer is also known as the Ten Year Imperial IPA.

Clear orange-amber body with minimal head. Nice hoppy aroma, firm malts also. Not over the top however. The flavor is much more pronounced with grapefruit hops and a good wallop of sweet malts. Medium fuill bodied. This is really an IIPA IMHO.

Aroma is citrusy & perfumery, good hop choices with some sweet overtones. Orange copper color, good head & lacing. The flavor is well balanced with lots of hops. Finishes sweet & refreshing good balanced, lots of hops.

Very sweet citrusy nose with notes of caramelized malt. Quite sweet with a bitter finish that cleans up the palate. Very nice.

On tap GABF ’02: Big pine nose on a hazy orange body. Oily mouthfeel and the bitterness keeps coming after you swallow. Deep full taste.

The sunny, orange appearance bespeaks of sampled hoppy beers past. Indeed this beer emanates an enticing hop boquet with a pungency. The body is also of a finely crafted hop content and finishes dry. With an alcohol content of 7.8%--this is hops with a bop.

this IPA is awesome, very big beer, sweet maltiness finds a way through the tons of hops used in this beer, hops control the majority of the flavor with a spicey, citrus profile and aggressive biiterness. Hopheads must try this beer it’s one of the best!
