Also sold as Tesco Finest American Double IPA
Ingredients: Maris Otter, Crystal malt, Caramalt; Centennial, Columbus, Simcoe hops. Dry Hops: Centennial, Columbus, Simcoe. IBU 150
This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But don’t 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.

Bottle 33cl, a clear amber beer with low head. Nose is on mango, lemon, hops resin. Aroma is malty, medium sweet, deep hops resin, hops perfume, honey and grassy notes, aftertaste is long, bit burning with intense bitterness. Body is nice, a bit too sweet but nice vinous consistence and complexity.

Flavor had a dry hopy,fruity/citric mouthfeeling who last werry loong, maltynes , and some caramellynes was there too. Medium body and a nice medium to loong dry fruity/citric finish. Well done, at this alcy level!!!

Boutip (4646) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle: Poured a light orangey color ale with a large foamy7 head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops is quite powerful with not much else being discernable. Taste packs a powerful punch of citrus hops with a real bitter finish. Malt base is present though doesn’t’ make much of an impression. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. One-dimensional for sure but can’t really argue with the citrusy hops punch of this one.
