This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But donít feel obliged to take our word for it, this little bottle has a grandiloquent story to tell.
2,204 malted Maris Otter grains gave all they had to offer the world to provide the robustly delicate toffee malt canvas for the ensuing epic.
4 Hop Cones willingly sacrificed themselves in fiery cauldron that is our brew kettle to ensure your mouth is left feeling punished and puckering for more.
9,900,000,000 yeast cells frantically fermented their little hearts out as the sugars were magically turned into alcohol in the dark depths of our fermentation tanks.
2 humans and 1 canine companion are relatively happy with the results
Note this is for the new petrol blue coloured labels with white lettering, which is 9.2%. Ratings for the older bottles with with bright blue label and black lettering should go under the first edition.

On tap at Kō-10. A more or less clear beer, dark golden in color and with a small off-white to beige head on top. The aroma is fruity and resiny, with a good dash of caramel sweetness. Sweet, caramel-like flavor with resins and some dried fruits. Full-bodied, almost sticky. A nice beer, but too sweet for my likings. Will definately try this one again in a non-festival setting. Rating: 6-4-6-4-12-3.3. 100506

Bottle. A dense, light beige head sits on top of a clear, amber colored body. The aroms is quite hoppy, with peaches and a generic tropical fruityness. Resins too. Itís lighlty warming on the palate, full-bodied and with a pleasant level of carbonation. Green pine cones, bitterness, grapefruit and sweetish maltyness in the flavor. Lasting bitterness in the end. A quite pleasant one, nothing more. 121109

330ml bottle. Pours a silky and creamy nice white head. Pretty well carbonated, cute small bubbles. Aroma of autumnly hops and fruit cake. More power for taste than expected. Pear and sugar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
