COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amarillo, Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe hops unite to produce an immensely floral, botanical nose and a veritable explosion of citrus and pine on the palate. With an even more obscene hop overload than our infamous Idiot IPA, it’s an India Pale Ale truly deserving of its imperial crown.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, bread, some nice orange, grapefruit into a bit of pine. Taste was a mix of floral, citrus, some slight orange into a bit of yeast, bread, caramel with a hint of spice, finishing fairly bitter. A bit old tasting, will try to re-rate fresh.
